It goes without saying that the New York Giants need more help at wide receiver, particularly with Kadarius Toney suffering an injury and Kenny Golladay expected to miss the next two games.
Although it’s probable the Giants could try to incorporate Golladay more against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night, head coach Brian Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen are still looking for additional possibilities.
The Giants reportedly expressed interest in Cole Beasley before he joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practise team, according to recent rumours. Because Chris Godwin, their slot receiver, was out, the Buccaneers ultimately added Beasley to the active roster.
Beasley’s role will be reduced, though, as Godwin is anticipated to make a full recovery from a hamstring injury in the coming weeks. As a result, Beasley may decide to test the free agent market once more.
The New York Giants are trying to work around a tight financial situation:
Beasley was probably given a minimal contract since the Giants, regrettably, don’t have much salary cap room to work with. The season would reset in 2023, removing any salary cap applications, and Big Blue has $5.16 million available, so they could give him some money for the remaining games.
Beasley was a dependable target for Josh Allen over the previous few seasons. He appeared in 16 games last season for the Buffalo Bills, compiling 693 yards and one score. He started his career with Dallas and played for them for seven seasons before moving on to Buffalo for three years while he awaited his most recent chance with the Buccaneers.
