Vic Beasley set to sign with Tennessee Titans

Vic Beasley, Titans

The Tennessee Titans will be signing pass rusher Vic Beasley, according to Dianna Russini of ESPN.com. Financial terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.

Beasley spent the first five years of his career with the Atlanta Falcons and is coming off of a 2019 campaign in which he played every game and registered 42 tackles, eight sacks and a pair of forced fumbles.

The 27 year old, who played his collegiate football at Clemson, was originally selected by the Falcons with the eighth overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Beasley appeared in every contest during his rookie year, finishing with 26 tackles, four sacks, an interception and a pair of forced fumbles. The following season, Beasley broke out, leading the league with 15.5 sacks to go along with 39 tackles, six forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and a defensive touchdown, en route to a Pro Bowl appearance and a First-Team All-Pro selection.

At the time, Beasley seemed to be on the verge of stardom, but since then, he has been mostly a disappointment and the Falcons opted to move on after the 2019 season.

The Georgia native took a massive step back in 2017, recording just 29 tackles, five sacks and a forced fumble after his dominant 2016 campaign, and in 2018, Beasley was similarly ineffective, finishing with 20 tackles, five sacks, a fumble recovery and a defensive score.

He did bounce back a bit this past year, but his 2019 season still paled in comparison to his sophomore campaign.

On the bright side, Beasley is very durable, having missed just two games in his NFL career thus far.

The Titans, meanwhile, went 9-7 and made it all the way to the AFC Championship Game this past season.
