The Buffalo Bills released wide receiver Cole Beasley on Thursday after three seasons.

The Bills had granted Beasley permission to seek a trade earlier this month. He was entering the final season of a four-year, $29 million deal signed in 2019.

His release saves Buffalo $6.1 million against the salary cap, per Spotrac.

Beasley, 32, caught 82 passes for 693 yards and one touchdown in 16 games (eight starts) in 2021. He has 550 receptions for 5,709 yards and 34 scores in 149 games (50 starts) with the Dallas Cowboys (2012-18) and Bills.
