Cole Beasley looks like he’s becoming a trusted target for Tony Romo. But the undrafted second-year receiver isn’t trying to grab a bigger share of the receptions pie.
“That’s not what it’s about,” he said after the Cowboys’ victory against Philadelphia. “It’s about getting Ws, first of all. That stuff just works itself out with having success out there.”
Beasley caught six passes on seven targets for 53 yards. He has caught more and more passes every game this year, from one in Week 3 to three at San Diego to four in each of the next two games.
For the year, he is the Cowboys’ third-leading wide receiver, with 18 catches for 167 yards and a touchdown. He's now got more numbers than Miles Austin, who missed two games with a hamstring injury and hasn't caught a pass in the two games he's played since.Asked if he is gaining a bigger role in the offense, Beasley said, “I can’t say whether I’ll get an increased role sooner or later or whatever. But as long as we keep playing how we’re playing and keep winning, everything will work out how we want it to.”
Beasley said he’s gained quarterback Tony Romo’s trust by making catches.
“It just comes over time of making plays in the game when he does throw the ball to me and taking advantage of it,” Beasley said. “As he keeps throwing my way and I keep catching it, more and more trust is going to build, and more and more balls are going to come my way.”
