Cowboys WR Cole Beasley says if you think he’s just another athlete-turned-rapper you’re dead wrong… because he’s just the opposite, telling TMZ Sports he’s actually a rapper-turned-athlete.
Cole released a single 80 Stings back in January, and the critical consensus from most people was that Beasley spit hot fire like Dylan.
We talked to Cole and his producer Phazz Clark… and CB says the toughest thing about being an athlete that raps is that he isn’t that at all.
For this album to be a success, for me it’s really just opening the door for people looking past the athlete trying to rap, to he’s just a rapper who happens to play football.
A season ago, rookie running back Christian McCaffrey led the Panthers in receptions with 80, though he averaged just 8.1 yards per reception. Wideout Devin Funchess, a possession receiver, was next with 63. He was followed by two players no longer with the team, Kelvin Benjamin (32 catches) and Ed Dickson (30), and Greg Olson, the big-play tight end who suffered a broken ankle and managed just 17 catches in seven games.
And a fun one: According to Baseball-Reference.com, an offensive team of nine Kris Bryants, combined with “average” pitching and defense, would feature a winning percentage of over .800.
The numbers go on and on, as they do for many elite hitters in baseball, but Bryant’s reduced strikeout rate sticks out the most.
The first year, I was chasing a lot more because you’re not used to seeing major league pitching, Bryant said. “Now you have a history; you know how the pitches move and you know what to swing at and what not to. It’s always a work in progress. I find myself chasing now, but sometimes you do have to give credit to the pitcher.”
That was the play — 12 seconds from snap to score — that caught the attention of Carolina wide receivers coach Lance Taylor. Amazing, is how Taylor described to ESPN.com’s David Newton Moore’s zig-zagging 92-yard touchdown against Nebraska in 2016. That Cheap Oakland Raiders Jerseys play was unbelievable. He should have been tackled at least 15 times and there’s only 11 Cheap Professional Sports Jerseys defensive players. There were a couple of guys that had multiple misses on the same play.
