Beasley has no-showed throughout the offseason, despite having just signed a one-year, $9.5M free agent deal with the Titans in March. The deal – fully guaranteed – was set to place him as one of the team’s starting defensive ends, opposite of Harold Landry. Instead, GM Jon Robinson has been left to answer questions about Beasley’s whereabouts.
“I have been in contact with Vic, he is not here, he understands his absence is unexcused, and he told me he will be reporting to camp in the near future,” said the GM, after placing Beasley on the Reserve/Did Not Report list. “Our current focus is on the players that are here now, getting everyone acclimated to the protocols, our building, and our football program. We will have the same acclimation process with Vic when he reports.”
A former first-round pick of the Falcons, Beasley broke out in 2016, his sophomore NFL season. He managed 15.5 sacks that year but couldn’t reprise that performance in 2017 or 2018. Then, in 2019, he turned in eight sacks, giving him some momentum heading into free agency.
