WATCH: Cowboys' Beasley goes behind back for early Catch of the Year nominee
Beasley pinned the ball to the back of his jersey with one hand and tiptoed along the sideline
The 2016 Dallas Cowboys were powered to a 13-3 record by their dominant offensive line and their dominant rookie duo of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott. You know this. I know this. The Cowboys themselves know this.
What you may not know is that the Cowboys' leading receiver during that brilliant season was not Dez Bryant; it was not Jason Witten; it was not Terrance Williams and it was not Ezekiel Elliott. No, it was diminutive slot man Cole Beasley. Beasley ended 2016 with a career-high 75 catches for 833 yards, as well as a career-high tying five touchdowns.
He's right back at it in 2017 against the Giants in Week 1, and a fourth-quarter catch might have made you scream at your TV if you saw it live. Check out the replay:
And the crazy GIF:
