DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Cowboys free agent receiver Cole Beasley could encounter a tough free agent market when free agency begins on March 13 based on his tweets Wednesday. 

Beasley first tweeted, "everyone telling me what I'm worth...let's just wait and see." A short time later he said, "slot WRs just grow on trees apparently."

Beasley is reportedly looking for $20 million guaranteed. However, as 105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher smartly pointed out all week, if the $20 million guaranteed asking price is true, what are the other details of the contract?

"I believe the contract #Cowboys FA @Bease11 wants is more detailed (and more reasonable) than the ballyhooed '$20M GUARANTEED!' stories. I know everybody loves the screaming headlines, but with a little work, maybe we can find some smart subtleties. Stay tuned," Fish said in a tweet Wednesday. 

We should note that the Cowboys would very much like to bring Beasley back next season. It'll just come down to how his market shapes up. 

Back in October, after Beasley expressed on social media that he believed he should be one of the highest paid slot receivers in the league, we decided to do some homework on how much those players are paid. You can see what we discovered here
