Tampa Bay Elevate Veteran Wide Receiver To Active Roster

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are nearing crisis level with the health of their wide receivers, and combining that with the 1-game suspension that Mike Evans is dealing with, they needed to make a move to help this group ahead of the Week 3 clash with the Green Bay Packers. That move was to elevate the recently signed Cole Beasley, a veteran who has spent his career with the Dallas Cowboys and Buffalo Bills to the active roster, and if he can stay healthy for this squad, he'll be a fantastic pickup for them.

Beasley has never been a star, but with every Quarterback he's played with, has built great chemistry, and has become one of the most solid and reliable slot receivers in the NFL, and if the Bucs can get two of Julio Jones, Breshad Perriman or Russell Gage healthy for the clash, to go along with Scotty Miller, they've got a good chance. 

Over the past 10 seasons, Beasley has racked up 5,709 receiving yards, to go along with 34 Touchdowns, and pairing him with Tom Brady, even this late in both men's careers could be a move that unlocks the best for Cole. It's tough to say where he fits when Evans, Chris Godwin, Jones and the rest of this wide receiver group get healthy, but for right now, Beasley is a fantastic addition to this team, and will help a depleted group on Sunday.
