Vic Beasley reports to Titans

Later than expected, Vic Beasley is ready to get to work in Tennessee.

Beasley has reported to the Titans, according to reporters in Tennessee.

It’s still not clear why Beasley waited until today to report to the Titans, with whom he signed a one-year, $9.5 million contract this offseason. Beasley has already racked up $500,000 in fines for failing to show up.

Titans General Manager Jon Robinson released a statement last week saying the team placed Beasley on the reserve/did not report list and was expecting him to report soon, but no one seems to know what the holdup was. Beasley could have opted out of the 2020 season if he was concerned about COVID-19, but he chose not to do that.

Beasley has played his entire five-year career with the Falcons. He led the NFL with 15.5 sacks in 2016 but hasn’t had as big an impact since then. The Titans are hoping he can make a difference in their defense, but he’s had a bumpy start.

  1. It must be nice to be able to throw away 500k, just like that. These spoiled little boys are going to have a real awakening soon.

  2. I wouldnt be so quick to call him spoiled. I can’t imagine he’s too happy about throwing away half a mil.

    Addition by subtraction for the Falcons

    Yeah, like keeping Devonta Freeman, instead of Tevin Coleman… Great job with that one…

  4. He was always late getting to the QB…no reason to wonder why he’s getting to camp late too!!

  5. The lack of communication is weird, but the timing tells a story to me. He wanted to take maximum time to consider whether to opt-out or not. Until that decision was made, it didn’t make much sense to show up (why expose yourself then opt out). Now that the deadline has passed, and he didn’t opt out, he’s showing up. Actually I’m surprised more guys didn’t take this route (albeit with better communication to the team).

  6. He will not have to pay the fine. Teams moan and grown about players not showing up on time but then forgive the fine. Make the fine mandatory where it can not be forgiven and start seeing a change

    You forgot to add “by his choice”.

  8. re Jerrysbrother
    the new CBA has in it that the fines MUST be paid and not reduced or forgiven.
