Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley has taken to Twitter to address his controversial statements from earlier this week.

Beasley, the Cowboys' veteran slot wide receiver, posted the following message on social media on Tuesday.

"Honestly, the front office pushes who they want to get the ball to. I haven’t been a huge priority in that regard. Maybe that will change but I’m not sure. More balls come my way in 2 minute drill where nothing is planned," he tweeted.

Beasley's comments came in response to the news that the Cowboys' offensive coordinator, Scott Linehan, had been fired. "Doesn’t mean I’m gone. I’ll play anywhere where I can make more of an impact. I would love for that to be Dallas or anywhere else that will give me more pops to make an impact. I just wanna ball. It’s hard with 3 to 4 opps a game," he added.

Beasley then took to Twitter today to address his earlier tweets.

"Some are misunderstanding my point. EVERY team’s gameplan in pro sports is dictated by the front office. Big free agent additions, high draft picks, etc are going to get the most opps. And I’m not mad at that! Lol I just want to help my team win. All good players want the rock," he wrote.

The Cowboys, unsurprisingly, are never not interesting.
