“He’s over”, Beasley’s agents said to Aaron Wilson of the Pro Football network. “He gets back on a plane and goes home. He grew from a kid no all-star game wanted. We really appreciate all the teams he played for.

“He’s an incredibly wonderful human being, a great football player and an even better husband and father. He hasn’t been able to be a full-time dad in a while. The game weighs on you.
