Dallas Cowboys[edit]

2012 season[edit]

Beasley went undrafted in the 2012 NFL Draft due to his size and was signed by his home state team, the Dallas Cowboys.[17] Beasley left abruptly during training camp, stating he was dealing with "personal stuff", and even considered retiring from professional football. Beasley went on to have a sudden change of heart, returning and making the final 53-man roster.[18]

Beasley finished his rookie year with 15 receptions for 128 yards in ten games and no starts.[19]

2013 season[edit]

Beasley found ways to be productive while being surrounded by a solid corps of wide receivers, having the highest completion percentage of any receiver in the NFL with more than 10 targets.[20] He was targeted by quarterback Tony Romo on third down, especially in spread formations.[21] Much of this became attributed to Beasley's very good route running.[22]

Beasley finished his second professional season with 39 receptions for 368 yards and two touchdowns to go along with 79 return yards in 14 games and three starts.[23]

2014 season[edit]

In 2014, Beasley posted 37 receptions (fourth on the team) for 420 yards (fourth on the team) and four touchdowns in 16 games and two starts. He averaged nearly 50 yards per game during the final six contests of the season.[24] In the Wild Card round against the Detroit Lions, Beasley made four catches – three for first downs- for 63 yards and recovered a fumble in the 24-20 victory.[25]

2015 season[edit]

On March 3, the Cowboys signed Beasley for an additional four years, with a total contract value of $13.6 million. With leading receiver Dez Bryant injured for most of the season, Beasley finished with 52 receptions (tied for second on the team) for 537 yards and five touchdowns (led the team), while playing with four different starting quarterbacks with varying degrees of knowledge of the team's offense.[26]

At the beginning of the year Beasley was used to fill in as a punt returner, due to his ball security ability. Beasley was eventually replaced by rookie Lucky Whitehead after having poor return averages and a critical muffed punt in a loss against the New York Giants.[27]

2016 season[edit]

Beasley in 2016

In 2016, Beasley posted career highs in receptions and yards, catching 75 passes for 833 yards and five touchdowns.[28] His 76.5% catch rate ranked second among NFL wide receivers in 2016.[29] In the Divisional Round round against the Green Bay Packers, Beasley made four catches for 45 yards and had eight return yards in the 34-31 loss.[30]

2017 season[edit]

In the 2017 season, Beasley finished with 36 receptions for 314 yards and four touchdowns.[31]

2018 season[edit]

Beasley began the 2018 season with seven receptions for 73 yards in a 16–8 road loss to the Carolina Panthers.[32] During Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, he had nine receptions for 101 yards and two touchdowns in the 40–7 victory.[33] In the regular-season finale against the New York Giants, he caught six passes for 94 yards along with the game-winning touchdown in the narrow 36-35 road victory.[34][35]

Beasley finished the 2018 season with 65 receptions for 672 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games and four starts.[36] The Cowboys won the NFC East and earned the #4-seed in the NFC Playoffs.[37] In the Wild Card Round against the Seattle Seahawks, Beasley had three receptions for 28 yards in the 24–22 victory.[38] In the Divisional Round against the Los Angeles Rams, he had a 15-yard reception in the 30–22 road loss.[39]

During Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football, Beasley recorded nine catches for 130 yards and a touchdown during the 34–24 road victory.[53] Two weeks later against the Denver Broncos, he recorded eight catches for 112 yards during the 48–19 road victory.[54] Beasley did not play in the regular-season finale against the Miami Dolphins due to a knee injury.[55]

After setting career-highs with 82 catches and 967 yards, Beasley was named second-team All-Pro. He also scored four touchdowns.[56][57]

In the Wild Card Round game against the Indianapolis Colts, Beasley caught seven passes for 57 yards in a 27–24 victory. His seven catches led the team and was a career-high for a playoff game.[58] In the AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs, Beasley recorded seven catches for 88 yards during the 38–24 road loss.[59] After the season, Beasley revealed he had played through the 2020 playoffs with a partially broken fibula.[60]

In August of 2021, Beasley was placed in a COVID-19 safety protocol.[61]

During Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans, Beasley caught seven passes for 88 yards and his first touchdown of the season in the narrow 34–31 road loss.[62][63] On December 21, 2021, Beasley was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive for the virus.[64]

During the 2022 offseason, Beasley was given permission to seek a trade outside Buffalo. He was released by the Bills on March 17, 2022.[65]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers[edit]

On September 21, 2022, Beasley was signed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad.[66] Three days later, he was elevated to the active roster for a game against the Green Bay Packers before being reverted back to the practice squad on September 27.[67][68] Beasley was elevated to the active roster on October 1, 2022.[69]

Retirement[edit]

On October 5, 2022, Beasley announced his retirement from the NFL after 11 seasons.[70]

Music career[edit]

Beasley released the debut single "80 Stings" in 2017.[71] In 2018, he released his debut album The Autobiography produced by Victor "Phazz" Clark. The two teamed up to form ColdNation Records, an independent record label located in Frisco, Texas.[72] He released a new single called "Sometimes" in January 2020.[73]

Controversies[edit]

COVID-19 vaccine comments[edit]

In June 2021, Beasley announced on social media that while he understood the NFL's interest in players getting the COVID-19 vaccine, he would forgo it nonetheless, even if it meant that he would have to end his playing career as a result. Beasley initially claimed he would stop discussing the issue publicly out of a desire to not be a "distraction" to his team.[74] He then entered a public spat with Mark Cuban, with the Dallas Mavericks owner offering to buy Beasley's wife a share in Pfizer stock if Beasley got vaccinated and promoted the vaccine on his social media platforms.[75] Beasley later entered a public back and forth with teammate and Bills’ defensive end Jerry Hughes over the NFL’s new vaccine rules.[76]

In August of 2021, Beasley was removed from the Buffalo Bills’ facility for close contact with a vaccinated COVID-19 positive staff member.[77] On August 25, Beasley and teammate Isaiah McKenzie were fined $15,000 for violating the NFL's COVID-19 protocol by not wearing masks. Beasley again took to social media to voice his complaints and was poked fun at by his teammate Stefon Diggs who said "15k is a lot of money lol…" to which Beasley responded by saying "Lol not for you."[78] He was placed back on the active roster on August 27. It was on the same day that Beasley publicly displayed a brain tattoo on his Instagram account. Beasley commented of the tattoo that it symbolised his desire for more 'free thinking' in the league.[79]

On October 4, 2021, Beasley took to his Twitter account to criticize Bills fans who booed him at games due to his unvaccinated status.[80] He then deactivated his Twitter account the following week.[81]

On December 26, 2021, ESPN reported that Beasley had “been fined multiple times for COVID-19 protocol violations, reaching a cumulative sum in the range of $100,000.”[82]
