WRCole Beasley may have played his last snap with the Buffalo Bills. Beasley, 32, has been given permission to seek a trade after back-to-back seasons of 82 receptions. The wide receiver is entering the final year of his contract, which is expected to earn him $6.1 million, and Spotrac.com's Mike Ginnitti has set a timeframe for Buffalo to move the receiver. With the Bills currently lacking cap space, moving or releasing Beasley makes sense despite his performance with the team. The big question, however, is whether the team can find a trading partner or whether they simply have to part ways with the recipient. Bill's GM Brandon Beane hasn't completed Beasley's return in 2022 despite the recipient's trade request, but a return may not be in Beasley's plans. So who are potential trading partners for Buffalo? There's no doubt Cole Beasley would love a Brian Daboll reunion. In January 2021, Beasley gushed about then-Bills OC and current head coach of the New York Giants. "The guy is an amazing coach, probably the best OC I've ever played for - not just schematically but as a person," Beasley said. Every time a guy like that leads you, it's fun to play. Daboll lavished praise on Beasley during their time together in Buffalo. As Daboll tries to figure out what he has in Daniel Jones, the former Bills OC should try to get the quarterback as many guns as possible. There is a belief the Browns will cut Jarvis Landry, but Cleveland still needs receivers. If the team plans to part ways with Landry, the team could replace him with Beasley. Bill Callahan, the Browns' orienteering coach, knows the receiver well from their time together in Dallas and could be urging Cleveland to make a move for the veteran. "He gives you that dimension of speed and agility and the guy can change direction in the slot and do multiple things," said then-offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Bill Callahan. "You can isolate him to different types and different places, so I think it's a real benefit to have a guy like him, sort of Wes Welker-ish in a way. He gives us this dimension. He gives us a lot of flexibility in terms of his route tree and the things he can do to get open.” All three teams have a young signal caller (Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Davis Mills) who is backed by a reliable receiver like Beasley would benefit. Early in Josh Allen's career, Beasley was a big help as a kind of security blanket for the quarterback. Beasley can do the same for people like Lawrence, Fields and Mills. The Colts' main focus this offseason will likely be figuring out what to do at the quarterback position after Carson Wentz's 2021 campaign didn't go to plan. Of course, one could argue that Wentz didn't have enough playmakers in the wide receiver position. Michael Pittman is the only long-term fix currently on the position. Pittman fell for over 1,000 yards last year while the rest of the receivers struggled to make an impact. Zach Pascal was second on the team in receiving (384 yards) with the veteran T. Simply put, the Colts need more guns at the receiver regardless of who plays 2022 quarterback for the team. Beasley would be an intriguing option for the Ravens. The team has pass-catching options in Mark Andrews, Marquise Brown and Rashod Bateman, but Beasley could take the team over the top. Last year, the Ravens attempted to add JuJu Smith-Schuster to bolster their receiving unit. This year, the team could trade Beasley to address the position. Washington may be in the market for a slot receiver as Adam Humphries is set to hit free agency in 2021 after a 41-383 campaign. Re-signing Humphries might be a cheaper alternative than trading with Beasley, but Beasley is a significant upgrade. Beasley would start in the slot from day one with Terry McLaurin, Curtis Samuel and Dyami Brown as other passing options. Bill's GM Discusses Trade in 2022 NFL Draft: Is Cornerback a Necessity?
