Potential Cap Casualty: Cole Beasley
Considering the Bills are one of the better-run organizations right now, there aren’t a slew of veterans that the team is chomping at the bit to cut. While their cap space isn’t in a great place right now, their top paid players are some of the best in the league and are deserving of their deals.
They have a competitive roster where their top guys are getting paid like it. That is the reality of a top NFL team.
The most likely name I could come up with is Cole Beasley. The slot receiver saw his playing time and production dip this season, and at his age, those numbers will only continue to decrease.
While cutting him only nets a saving of around 6.1 million dollars, it is a relatively easy move to make. Add in Gabriel Davis’s solid play and it makes sense to get younger at receiver.
The only other name that remotely makes sense is Mitch Morse. While he saves more money, he is the better player at this point and has more of a role with the Bills going forward. While both could wind up being cap casualties, Beasley’s name makes the most sense. Don’t be surprised to see the veteran looking for a new home this offseason.
