Should WR Cole Beasley Receive Another Contract Extension?

The signed to a four-year back in March of 2015, meaning he has one year remaining on his current contract. 2018 could possibly be the last time we see him in a Cowboys uniform, but should the organization consider extending his contract once again?

Deciding whether or not to keep Cole Beasley around after the isn't going to be an easy decision to make. Beasley just turned 29 in April, which means he will be 30 years old when the kicks off. That's considered old by NFL standards, which could have an impact on the decision one way or another.

Old age catches up to all us whether we like it or not. 30 years old isn't considered old outside of professional sports, but it is an age where players start to break down physically. We haven't seen any of that from Cole Beasley yet, but there is a risk of it happening, which has to be taken into account when considering a contract extension.

On the flipside, Beasley's age could actually be a positive. He is not likely to receive a “big-money” contract offer on the open market, which could help him remain in Dallas. He may prefer to finish out his career with the Cowboys and give them a bit of a discount.

Of course, this is all speculation at this point, but that's all we really have to go one right now. He still has to perform on the field in 2018 to even be considered as a possibility to receive a contract extension. He's not the only Cowboys player currently on the roster who deserves a long-term deal. In fact, he could be at the bottom of the pecking order.

and are probably first in line for a contract extension, followed closely by (if he can get his act together). Beasley isn't the same kind of impact playmaker as them, but is still important to the team nonetheless.

When it comes to making the more “Dak-friendly”, no one does a better job of that then the diminutive (5'8″, 180) WR, Cole Beasley. We all know he's not the biggest receiver on the team, but he probably is the most efficient as a route runner and as a pass catcher, especially on third down.

I don't know where you stand, but I would be on board with the Dallas Cowboys offering Beasley a two or three-year contract extension. I personally believe he still has value to the offense moving forward, especially since the WR position is being revamped.

For me, there is just too much unknown about the WR position moving forward. is only here for a couple years, and behind him is a lot of young/unknown talent. Maybe , , and possibly are future starters, but I think the Cowboys need a reliable player for a few more years while all of this gets worked out.

Should the Cowboys offer Cole Beasley another contract extension?

Time to take a “wait and see” approach on Cole.

Time to let Irving walk. Somebody will over pay him this offseason but the fact his old DC and Indy was unwilling to part with a 2nd for him last year speaks volumes to me. Great player but another head case.

Sign Dak and DLaw and leave yourself cap room to add a quality player. Continue to draft well and build with youth.
