CB Kendall Fuller Names Cole Beasley “Toughest WR To Cover”

The Dallas Cowboys wide receivers have been the focus of much criticism as of late, and deservedly so. The group seems to lack speed, ability to win vertically, and the ability to create sufficient separation for quarterback Dak Prescott.

While all of this can be true, former Washington cornerback Kendall Fuller turned some heads with his comments about a particular Cowboys wide receiver earlier this week. The recently traded Fuller claimed that Cole Beasley is the toughest receiver to guard in the NFL.

Yes, you read that right. The toughest to guard in the whole league.

Kendall Fuller asked who has been the toughest receiver for him to cover: "This will be a surprise to a lot of people....Cole Beasley..." Huh.

As you would expect, these comments were met with some confusion. But to be honest, it makes sense. Fuller is primarily a slot conerback, and was tasked with covering Cole Beasley twice a year while with Washington. Beasley has proven to be a dangerous weapon from the slot against man coverage, and even the talented Fuller has had his issues.

Fuller rarely is asked to guard the outside receivers which many would think are "toughest to cover," and Cole Beasley was considered a top slot wide out just one season ago.

Perception can change a lot after one season. Now Cole Beasley might become a cap casualty, and could be cut this offseason to make room for another dynamic receiver. Plus, it appears the Cowboys have found Beasley's immediate replacement in former North Carolina WR Ryan Switzer.

Regardless, Cole Beasley had some fun with Fuller's comments, tweeting out that it's about time someone recognized him for his talents.

At least somebody admitted it. Lol finally got some love out here.

How the Cowboys handle their entire receiving corps, especially Cole Beasley, this offseason will be incredibly important to how this team performs going forward. With that being said, I wouldn't be shocked if Fuller's "toughest player to cover" is on a different roster in 2018.

Die-hard Cowboys fan from the Northeast, so you know I am here to defend the 'boys whenever necessary. Began writing for a WordPress Cowboys Blog, and am currently a college student. Lets get going.

    What else would you expect a 3rd corner to say??

  • Russ_Te

    Since the unit upgrade has to be based on more speed – everywhere possible – I would try to deal Beasley for fair value, and roll dice that Switzer can learn that seams game that both Beasley and Witten are experts at. And start the transition to Gathers for the same reason. And keep Butler, and only draft a WR who is a legit 4.2 / 4.3

    • Tone’ Cyphers

      Butler is going bye bye. He wanted s more playing time which he never really got at Dallas. I agree with the rest. We roll with Switz and draft for speed. Hopefully find a receiver above 6 ft with speed. I’m not sold on Rico yet but I would give me more opportunities this year to see if he’s worth the investment when Witt retires

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for 2018

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladoucer for 2018 1

Continuity is the key to good special teams play in the NFL. Already losing long-time Special Teams Coordinator Rich Bisaccia to the Raiders - who promptly snatched ST aces Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber in free agency - the Dallas Cowboys have announced their intentions to re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for the 2018 season.

Returning on a one-year deal, the fan favorite Ladouceur will be back to do what he does best in cleanly executing almost every special teams snap for Chris Jones or Dan Bailey to handle.

Todd Archer on Twitter

Long snapper L.P. Ladouceur will re-sign with the Cowboys on Monday, according to sources, on a one-year deal. He will be in his 14th season with the franchise. Only Jason Witten, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Bill Bates and Mark Tuinei will have more years of...

While Jones has improved as the Cowboys' punter with each passing season, Kicker Dan Bailey actually enters 2018 as another question mark on this unit. With the general belief around the team being that Bailey will be just fine moving forward, the Cowboys will no longer have to worry about who handles long snaps next year either.

Report: Raiders Sign Former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber

Kevin Brady



Cowboys Headlines - Dallas Cowboys Re-Sign Linebacker Kyle Wilber

A Free Agency period filled with departures continued for the Dallas Cowboys today, as the Oakland Raiders have reportedly signed the now-former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber.


The Raiders have signed LB Kyle Wilber:

Wilber has been with the Cowboys since 2012, and has played in all 16 games four of the past five seasons. Most of his time has come on special teams, but he did provide solid linebacker depth for the Cowboys since joining the team.

Dallas has now lost both Wilber and Anthony Hitchens, depleting their linebacker depth even further over the last couple weeks.

The Raiders have now signed two key special teams contributors for the Cowboys in Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber this offseason. Hopefully Dallas can replace these types of "replacement level" players throughout the rest of the offseason, especially during the NFL Draft.

Report: Cowboys Officially Release CB Orlando Scandrick

Kevin Brady



Orlando Scandrick

After requesting his release from the team just a few days ago, Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has gotten his wish. According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Scandrick has officially been cut by the Dallas Cowboys.

Josina Anderson on Twitter

I'm told the #Cowboys have informed CB Orlando Scandrick he will be released, per source.

This move will reportedly save the Cowboys roughly $1.4M against the salary cap, as we hope they finally look to make some moves during the Free Agency period.

Scandrick's release comes after an offseason in which the Cowboys totally overhauled the back end of their defense, specifically their cornerbacks. With the emergence of young, promising players such as Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis, and the health issues of the aging Scandrick, the move makes a lot of sense.

In fact, after the Cowboys drafted Awuzie in the second round of last year's draft it was rumored the Cowboys were looking to move Scandrick for extra draft picks. Instead, one year later, they have cut him to save some cap room.

Orlando Scandrick should have a market to find a new team elsewhere, but his time in Dallas has now come to a close.
