The Bills had granted Beasley permission to seek a trade in early March, but eventually released him in a move that created about $6.1 million in salary cap space.

Beasley, 33, will now join a Tampa Bay team that enters its Week 3 showdown against the Packers without star receiver Mike Evans, who was suspended one game for his role in Sunday’s tussle with the Saints. The Bucs are also struggling with injuries to veteran receivers Chris Godwin and Julio Jones, who both missed their win over the Saints.

Mike McCarthy shared his thoughts on the Cowboys’ 20-17 win over the Bengals and updated the severity of Dalton Schultz’s injury.

“I really, really need to start working on my drama,” he said. “Because there are times when I feel like I don’t really fit in here. Yeah, I guess I’m going to lie to everyone. I took a moment. Yeah, I took a moment. I did my press conference as quickly as possible. I took a shower and came home because my wife was out of town so I could babysit. So I had a big night.

McCarthy also provided an update on some injured players.

Tight end Dalton Schultz suffered a knee injury during the game. Fortunately, McCarthy said an MRI revealed no serious damage.

The team will see how well he can train and probably decide if he plays next Monday against the Giants.

Jerry Jones seems pretty confident that Dak Prescott could return sooner rather than later.

“I don’t know if anyone knows [when he’ll be back]said Jones, per ProFootballTalkis Michael David Smith. “But when he [gets enough strength in his hand], then you’ll likely see some real progress in his timeline. I don’t know when it is. I know with a good airing last week, everyone recognizes he’ll be back sooner rather than later as far as the timeline goes. It really could be a minimum of two weeks here in my mind [Washington in Week 4]. It’s very optimistic. But he has the kind of repair there that will allow him not to worry too much about getting injured again. It’s just a matter of handling. But that’s a big question.

The future is still hazy for Prescott, but Dallas received a solid performance from Rush on Sunday against the Bengals. The 28-year-old completed 19 of 31 pass attempts for 235 yards and a touchdown with no turnovers in a 20-17 win, crafting a game-winning drive that culminated in a field goal in the game’s final play.
