Titans’ Vic Beasley finally shows up to training camp
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel was among those that were still perplexed by outside linebacker Vic Beasley’s unexcused absence from the start of training camp. Fortunately, it appears he has finally showed up.
According to ESPN’s Turron Davenport, Beasley has reported for camp to begin the screening process for COVID-19:
Titans outside linebacker Vic Beasley, who hadn’t reported to camp since it began July 28, arrived to the team facility for COVID-19 testing on Friday morning.
Although Beasley may have finally showed up to training camp, there still has not been any explanation given for his delayed start to training camp. He is now slated to pay up to $500,000 in fines for not showing up after signing a one-year, $9.5 million deal with Tennessee this offseason.
The Titans were hoping that they would be able to get plenty of bang for their buck from Beasley after bringing him in on a prove-it deal. While his absence may have caused some unnecessary distractions for the team with training camp in full swing, he will still have an opportunity to take on a key role in this defense for the 2020 NFL season.
Beasley will first need to take care of business by producing three negative tests over a four-day period before he is allowed to enter the facility. Since he has already been limited to virtual meetings with his new team this offseason, Tennessee will need to do what they can to get him up to speed once he hits the practice field.
