The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.
Beasley was an initially signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys in 2012. He played there for seven seasons before signing a four-year deal with the Bills in 2019. He was released by the Bills in March of 2022, finding a home in Tampa with Tom Brady for just two games before retiring.
During his only two games played this season, Beasley caught four passes for 17 yards and zero touchdowns. 2021 was his last “full” season (minus one game), in which he had 693 yards and just one score. He now returns to the team and offense with which he is familiar to try and help the Bills during their stretch run.
