Cowboys keep WR Austin after Beasley's exit

John Brown says QB Josh Allen was first to reach out after signing

John Brown says QB Josh Allen was first to reach out after signing

Wide receiver Cole Beasley, who spent the first seven years of his National Football League career with the Dallas Cowboys, told reporters on Thursday that both his former team, as well as New England, were the other two teams vying for his services when free agency opened this week.

Think Josh Allen is excited to have some new weapons to work on the Buffalo Bills? It was a return to the Cowboys, where he's been his entire career, or a trip to the AFC East.

The 29-year-old ultimately chose to sign a four-year, $29 million contract with the Bills, who also have added wide receiver John Brown since National Football League free agency officially opened Wednesday afternoon.

Allen was the first person from the Bills organization to reach out to both Beasley and new projected No. 1 receiver John Brown after they put pen to paper on their new deals. "I just want to come here and help him as much as I can".

The national narrative around Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen's rookie season on the field wasn't always glowing past year.

"Quarterback was a big factor", he said. I've seen him do things with his legs and the way he throws the ball.

The 30-year-old slot receiver has appeared in 103 games with the Cowboys, catching 319 passes for 3,271 yards and 23 touchdowns.

Austin, the eighth overall pick in 2013, finished the year with eight catches for 140 yards and two touchdowns, marking a second consecutive season in which his statistics fell off.
