Dez Bryant isn't the only wide receiver sticking around in Dallas.

The Cowboys announced on Tuesday that Cole Beasley has been signed to a new four-year deal.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Beasley's pact is worth $13.6 million, with $7 million in guarantees and a $4 million signing bonus. Incentives can hike the deal to $15.1 million.

Tony Romo's slot receiver was productive last season, hauling in 37 catches for 420 yards and four scores. He finished fourth on the team in receptions behind Bryant, tight end Jason Witten and running back DeMarco Murray.

Beasley -- who once walked away from football during the team's 2012 training camp -- played well down the stretch, piling up nine catches in the Cowboys' regular-season finale before grabbing another 11 balls over two playoff games. He provided security as a fleet-footed slot target, something Dallas prized enough to keep him around for years to come.
