DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Cowboys have some work to do to fill the void at slot receiver next season as Cole Beasley has agreed to a four-year deal with the Buffalo Bills, according to multiple reports. 

 

Beasley will get $29 million over four years with $14.4 million of it being guaranteed, according to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network. He will reportedly earn $17 million in his first two seasons of the deal. 

The SMU alum confirmed the deal with the Bills in a tweet Tuesday and thanked the Cowboys for his time with the franchise. 

"I’ll always love #cowboynation and I appreciate the time we have had together. Thanks to the jones family for giving me a shot. Excited for this new journey. Can’t wait to get started in Buffalo. Let’s go! #BillsMafia," Beasley said. 

Beasley won't have to wait long to play against his former teammates as the Bills are slated to visit AT&T Stadium sometime next season. The NFL typically releases the full schedule in April. 

Ben Rogers of 105.3 The Fan reports the Cowboys wanted Beasley back but weren't willing to go where several other teams were financially. NFL reporter Jane Slater confirmed that Tuesday when she reported the Cowboys offer to Beasley was for $18 million over three years. 

105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher added that the $14 million fully guaranteed that Beasley will receive matches up with the $7 million per year number the Cowboys were never going to get to. 

Beasley had 65 catches for 672 yards and three touchdowns in 2018. In his seven seasons with the Cowboys, Beasley amassed 319 receptions for 3,271 yards and 23 touchdowns.
