Is Cole Beasley Coming Back to the Buffalo Bills?
The controversial wide receiver retired after a brief stint with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but might he return?
Cole Beasley was a productive player in the NFL, especially for the Buffalo Bills. He was one of Josh Allen's favorite targets when he played here for 3 seasons, acting as a safety net. He set career highs for catches (82), touchdowns (6), and yards (967) in a season for the Bills.
He also was not without controversy to some. He refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine and was outspoken about it and the NFL's protocols about it. He also criticized Bills fans claiming they were booing him over his vaccine status. In all, he was fined around $100,000 for COVID violations by the league. (Wikipedia)
He also reportedly asked to be traded which lead to his release and said he wouldn't miss Buffalo (USA Today).
Not everyone dislikes Beasley, of course. He has many supporters of his stances and he was a very good player. So, might he be on his way back despite everything that has been said?

Still, you never say never, especially in the NFL. Do you think the Bills should try to bring Cole Beasley Back?
