Cole Beasley retires from the NFL after 11 seasons with the wide receiver spending few weeks with the Tampa Bay Buccaneer.

Wide receiver Cole Beasley has decided to retire from the NFL after spending 2 weeks with the Buccaneers.

Beasley signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last most but has decided to retire from the NFL after 11 seasons.

“He is ready to be with his family after playing 11 seasons and it’s time to be a full-time dad and husband,” his agent told media.

“His wife and kids are still back home in Texas. They came out for the first game, went through the evacuation last week which the Tampa Bay organization hasn’t received near the credit they deserve for the way they handled [Hurricane Ian] — nothing but first class by the Glazer family, [general manager] Jason [Licht] and [coach] Todd [Bowles]. He doesn’t want to be separated from them anymore. He loves his wife and kids and wants to be with them.”

He appeared in two games for the Buccaneers, catching four passes on five targets for 17 yards. His longest reception was for five yards and he recorded one first down.

Beasley, 33, had been out of the league at the start of the 2022 season but remained interested in latching on with a team. Then, as Tampa Bay was dealing injuries at receiver to Chris Godwin and Julio Jones, and the one-game suspension of star Mike Evans, the Buccaneers decided to sign Beasley, who had been primarily a slot receiver throughout his career.

Beasley spent three seasons with the Buffalo Bills and had set career highs in targets in consecutive seasons (106, 107, 112).

“I appreciate the fans who supported me,” Beasley said in a statement posted to his Twitter account which has since been deleted.

“The most fun I’ve ever had playing football in Buffalo. My family and I will never forget the memories. Love all of my teammates there. I won’t regret leaving though. Things changed within the organization. It was time for me to move on.”
