NFL news: Bucs WR Cole Beasley retires – Bucs Wire

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Cole Beasley has decided to retire, his agent told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Mike Garafolo.

Beasley was signed to the Bucs’ practice squad earlier this season as the team dealt with multiple injuries and absences at wide receiver, and was promoted to the active roster for each of Tampa Bay’s last two games.

He was targeted five times by Tom Brady in those two games, catching four passes for 17 yards.

Beasley, 33, was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys out of SMU back in 2012. He finishes his 11-year NFL career with 554 receptions, 5,726 yards and 34 touchdowns.
