Falcons' Vic Beasley: Headed for Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley agreed Tuesday on a contract with the Titans, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Beasley will ink a one-year deal with Tennessee worth $9.5 million guaranteed, with a maximum value of of $12 million. The No. 8 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft is coming off a 2019 campaign in which he recorded 42 tackles, eight sacks and two forced fumbles in 16 games. The 27-year-old racked up 15.5 sacks for the Falcons in 2016, so his addition has the potential to provide a big boost to the Titans' pass rush in 2020.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Will head to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons announced that they will not seek a new contract with Beasley.

A 2015 first-round pick (eighth overall), Beasley has missed just two games for the Falcons over five seasons and led the league with 15.5 sacks in 2016. However, the Clemson product followed up the career year with back-to-back five-sack seasons before producing eight in 2019. Beasley will be an unrestricted free agent in March.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Closes out 2019 with eight sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley racked up 42 tackles, eight tackles for loss, eight sacks and two forced fumbles across 16 appearances for the Falcons in 2019.

The 27-year-old edge rusher enjoyed a late-season sack surge, compiling 6.5 sacks between Weeks 10 and 17 after accounting for just 11.5 in his preceding 38 games combined. This season Beasley was brought back by general manager Thomas Dimitroff on a fifth-year option worth $12.8 million, but it remains to be seen if he will fit into the budget for the cash-strapped 2020 Falcons. Ranking better than only Minnesota in available cap space, Atlanta will be forced into a decision on the Clemson product who was selected eighth overall in the 2015 draft.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Late-season sack surge persists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley accumulated three tackles and one sack during Sunday's 24-12 win against Jacksonville.

The 27-year-old edge rusher has been red-hot over the latter half of 2019, and especially unstoppable of late. Beasley managed just 1.5 total sacks across his first eight appearances of the year, but his contract negotiation leverage has now vastly improved by virtue of four sacks over the past three weeks, and 6.5 sacks since Week 10. With just one regular-season contest remaining on Beasley's fifth-year option, he has a strong opportunity to close out 2019 with a bang taking on a Buccaneers offense that is tied for seventh worst in the league with 3.1 sacks allowed per game.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Second-half tear continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley tallied five total tackles and one sack during Sunday's 29-22 win against San Francisco.

The 2016 All-Pro stepped up for an Atlanta pass-rush that had to go without Takkarist McKinley (shoulder) for much of the contest, picking up his seventh sack of the season in an upset over the recently top-seeded 49ers. Beasley has been red-hot following a sluggish start to the 2019 campaign, collecting 5.5 sacks over his past six appearances after accounting for just a sack and a half between Weeks 1 and 8. He has a strong probability of continuing his recent streak as a pocket disrupter Week 16, taking on a Jaguars offensive line that has surrendered multiple sacks in 11 consecutive outings.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Gets to Kyle Allen twice in Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley tallied four tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble during Sunday's 40-20 win against the Panthers.

The 2016 sack champion was able to generate pressure on Kyle Allen's blind side in Week 14, delivering a punishing blow that forced the ball into the hands of Falcons teammate Tyeler Davison. Following a disappointing start to the year that saw Beasley manage just 1.5 sacks through Week 8, the 27-year-old edge rusher has amassed 4.5 sacks over his past five appearances, providing a boost in contract leverage as he plays out his fifth-year option. There may not be many opportunities to get home in Week 15, however, with Beasley and the Falcons' front seven facing off against a San Francisco offensive line that ranks No. 7 in the NFL with just 61 QB hits allowed.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Sacks in consecutive weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley recorded two solo tackles, including a sack during Sunday's 29-3 win against the Panthers.

Beasley also picked up a pass deflection in Sunday's win. For a second time this season, he has sacks in consecutive weeks, giving Beasley four total on the year. Through 10 games in 2019, Beasley has 25 tackles and continues to be a boom-or-bust fantasy option.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Revives vintage Beasley
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley recorded four total tackles, including a sack and a half during Sunday's 26-9 win against the Saints.

It was the potential for a performance such as this that motivated general manager Thomas Dimitroff to pick up Beasley's $12.8 million fifth-year option in March. Since leading the NFL with 15.5 sacks in 2016, Beasley entered Sunday's contest against New Orleans with just 11.5 sacks over his preceding 38 appearances combined. Sunday he chipped in a quarter of the defense's production in that department, as Atlanta tallied six sacks and held the Saints to just three field goals on the afternoon. Next on the docket, Beasley will face a Panthers front that conceded three sacks to the Packers during a 24-16 loss in Week 10.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Solid outing not enough
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley recorded three tackles and a half-sack in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Beasley found the sack column for a second-straight week, but it wasn't enough to help his team come away with a win against the host Colts. He and the Falcons defense, through three weeks, are allowing an average of 25 points per game and need to make changes ahead of a Week 4 matchup with Tennesee (1-2).

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Tallies first sack of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley collected just one tackle during Sunday's 24-20 win against the Eagles, a sack of Carson Wentz.

He still isn't accounting for a high volume of stops against the run, but Beasley's sack is a kernel of hope for what the Falcons hope will be a much improved pass rush compared to what was offered in a disappointing defensive campaign last year. Coming into Sunday night's showdown, Beasley had compiled just 10 sacks over his previous 31 regular-season games, after logging an NFL-best 15.5 sacks and earning All-Pro honors during 2016. His potential resurgence, along with continued development for Grady Jarrett and Takkarist McKinley will be X-factors that determine Atlanta's ability to produce pressure for the rest of the year.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Sights set high for 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley suggested that racking up 10-plus sacks is an important goal for him headed into 2019, Vaughn McClure of reports. "For me, it is about double-digit sacks because I'm not just a guy, I'm a good player," Beasley said. "For me and the person that I am... that's what I need to do."

Since accounting for two more sacks (15.5) than any other player in the NFL in 2016, Beasley has collected just 10 sacks over 30 regular-season outings, while finishing no higher than third in sacks on his own team in either 2017 or 2018. When inspecting the last two years as a whole, the outlook is somewhat bleak -- but Beasley started to heat up late last year. He had only two sacks over a 17-game span between Week 10 of 2017 and Week 10 of 2018, but rebounded with four sacks over his final seven games of the season.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: To attend mandatory minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley said Friday that he will "definitely be there" when the Falcons open up mandatory minicamp June 11, Vaughn McClure of reports.

Head coach Dan Quinn was not thrilled that Beasley sat out voluntary workouts, saying that "there's nothing like on-field-stuff" in preparation for the regular season. Better late than never, though, and Quinn is enthusiastic to work hands-on with Beasley now that he's assumed responsibilities as the team's defensive play caller. Beasley's fifth-year option of $12.8 million was picked up by Atlanta on March 13, as the organization waits with bated breath for the 26-year-old defensive end to return to his All-Pro form of 2016. The Falcons finished 22nd in sacks last year, but if Beasley and Takkarist McKinley can achieve their full potential in 2019, that figure projects to be much improved.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Fifth-year option guaranteed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley's $12.8 million contract for 2019 became fully guaranteed Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Beasley, who paced the NFL with 15.5 sacks in 2016, hasn't even managed two-thirds of that total over his last two seasons combined (10). The Atlanta brass still believed in the 2015 first-round pick's talent enough to bring him back for another year, but his form the past two seasons makes it difficult to relying on him re-emerging as a top-flight IDP. Takk McKinley now ranks as the clear No. 1 pass rusher in Atlanta.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Likely to remain in Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dan Quinn said that the Falcons plan to retain Beasley on the roster for 2019, Vaughn McClure of reports. Quinn explained that keeping the 2016 NFL sack champion in Atlanta is "the plan right now," and that "it's going to take really good preparation and really consistent play" for Beasley to once again become a difference-maker on the defensive side.

There's been consideration that Atlanta is overpaying the slumping Beasley, who is in line to make $12.8 million in base salary this season despite only having compiled 10 sacks over his past 30 appearances. The Falcons addressed a number of other roster holes last offseason, overlooking pass rush as an area of need and finishing the year with only 37 sacks (eighth-worst) as a result. Quinn and the Falcons' brass appear to be standing by the 26-year-old defensive end for the time being, as the coach indicated Tuesday that he believes Atlanta will commit to retaining Beasley until March 13th, when the new league year begins and his salary becomes fully guaranteed.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Adds another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley recorded three solo tackles, one sack and two passes defensed during Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Beasley has now accounted for at least one sack in consecutive games for the first time all season, having also gotten to the quarterback in Week 14 at Green Bay. Beasley's five sacks in 2018 match his 2017 total through 14 games played.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Posts sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley recorded two tackles (one solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

Beasley's sack Sunday pushes his season total to four. He's had another disappointing year after a 2016 campaign that saw him tally 15.5 sacks. Looking ahead, Beasley and the Falcons will play the Cardinals in Week 15.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Scoop and score in Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley accounted for two tackles and a 74-yard fumble return for a touchdown during Sunday's 26-16 loss to Baltimore.

Beasley's zig-zagging scoop and score early in the second quarter provided him with his second career touchdown, as well as his first fumble recovery since 2016. Still, it's been a largely maladroit season for Beasley, who entered the year with aspirations to return to previous All-Pro form. Outside of a breakout two-sack performance against Dallas in Week 11, Beasley has accounted for only one sack and 10 tackles all season. Upcoming next is a matchup against a Green Bay offensive line that ranked bottom five in sacks allowed before holding Arizona to just one in a Week 13 loss.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Turns back clock to 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley collected two sacks and three combined tackles during Sunday's 22-19 loss to the Cowboys.

Following a six-game drought, Beasley got back in the sack column Sunday by dragging Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott to the ground twice for a total of minus-17 yards. Prior to his Week 11 breakout, Beasley had averaged one sack every 3.83 games since the start of the 2017 season. This after averaging nearly one sack per game (15.5 in 16 appearances) and being named a First-Team All-Pro in 2016. Atlanta desperately hopes to get the best out of Beasley and this Falcons pass rush Thursday night, going up against a No. 1 scoring Saints offense that's allowed an NFL-low nine sacks this year.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Struggling to get after the passer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley has recorded seven tackles and one sack through seven appearances on the season.

Since pacing the NFL with 15.5 sacks during 2016, Beasley has managed only six sacks over his past 22 games, while second-year man Takkarist McKinley appears to be emerging as the team's most consistent pass rusher. The two defensive ends will match up Sunday against a Washington offensive line that has allowed the eighth-fewest sacks (13) this season, though the Redskins will be without the services of stalwart left tackle Trent Williams (thumb).

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Nursing ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley was limited in practice again Friday as he continues to nurse a minor ankle injury, Vaughn McClure of reports.

Beasley's ankle issue will be monitored heading into Sunday's tilt against the Steelers, as the pass rusher was unable to log a full practice this week. Fellow defensive end Derrick Shelby (groin) has already been ruled out for Week 5, so the team could rely heavily on Takkarist McKinley if Beasley were to suffer a pregame setback.
