Beasley got to meet Welker for the first time after Sunday’s 51-48 loss to the Broncos.
“That was pretty sweet,” Beasley said. “He was a guy I always watched growing up when I realized I was going to play receiver. It was pretty cool meeting him. I thanked him for opening the door for guys like me.”
Beasley had a Welker-like game, catching four passes for 47 yards, including the first touchdown of his career, a 4-yarder in the fourth quarter that gave the Cowboys a 48-41 lead. Beasley looked Welker-like with his work in the slot.
Beasley has eight catches for 70 yards in the last three games and with the Cowboys using more empty-package looks he could be featured more, especially as Miles Austin recovers from a hamstring strain.
“I think Tony has faith in what I can do and he has since last year,” Beasley said. “You just keep getting better with each game and practice. I think we have some great weapons on this team. It creates opportunities for everyone to get involved. Tony did a great job (Sunday) of getting the ball to different people. I just have to take advantage of the opportunity when my number is called.”
