The team did save against the salary cap in letting him go, however, general manager Brandon Beane did express a desire to bring Beasley back. That did not happen.
For the first time since becoming a free agent, Beasley has spoken his mind on the Bills. There was both positive and negative, similar to his career in Buffalo.
Beasley, taking to his social media account on Twitter, had plenty of good to say about Bills fans.
The receiver said he felt “things changed” regarding the club, though. His message can be found below:
I appreciate the fans who supported me. 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. https://t.co/QfG9iCUcVE

On the field, Beasley was productive throughout his time in Buffalo. He was named a second-team, All-Pro in 2020 and nearly surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career.
Off the field, things drastically changed for Beasley once COVID-19 and vaccinations became a hot-button topic. Regardless of stance, most would hope such a situation could remain behind closed doors which did not occur.
Beasley currently remains a free agent and it’s clear at this point he won’t be returning to the Bills. Time will tell if he ends up on a roster as reports suggested on July 26 he’s waiting for the right opportunity.
