What just happened? New York Giants fans are in utter shock that yet another receiver has joined the G-Men offense after all the Saquon Barkley drama that occurred earlier this week. While the Giants did agree to a contract with former Jaguars and Jets running back James Robinson, why does the team continue to add wideouts?

News broke on Friday afternoon that the Giants signed veteran wide receiver Cole Beasley to a new deal, which reunites the wideout with his former offensive coordinator Brian Daboll. Sure, the Giants have dealt with plenty of injuries at WR over the past year, but was anyone expecting this?

NY Giants fans can't believe the team signed another slot receiver

Beasley retired last year, only to come back and suit up for the Bills to close out the campaign. A lot of people assumed that his playing days were over following the 2022 campaign, but he's not ready to end his career just yet. As you might have been able to imagine, some pricless posts have made their way to Twitter from the moment the Beasley news was announced:

As you can see from the tweets above, many Giants fans are confused about why Joe Schoen signed the veteran slot receiver. Could it be his existing history with Daboll, or is there something we don't know about Sterling Shepard's health? Regardless, Beasley is an insurance option that will provide plenty of experience to the G-Men if used properly.

The 34-year-old wideout is entering his 12th season in the NFL. He was signed by the Cowboys in 2012 as an undrafted free agent after playing collegiately at SMU. After seven seasons in Dallas, Beasley spent three years in Buffalo before splitting time with the Bills and Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.

Beasley joins a receivers room in East Rutherford that consists of Isaiah Hodgins, Darius Slayton, Parris Campbell,Jamison Crowder and more. Sterling Shepard and Wan'Dale Robinson are also talented wideouts, but they're still recovering from season-ending injuries in '22. The question remains how much of an option Beasley will be for Daniel Jones next season, but only time will tell.
