Titans to cut Vic Beasley

In March the Titans signed pass rusher Vic Beasley to a one-year, $9.5 million contract. It never panned out, and now he’s on the way out.

The Titans announced after this afternoon’s trade deadline that they’ll officially release Beasley tomorrow.

Beasley didn’t report to training camp on time and didn’t play well this year, so it’s been clear from the beginning that something wasn’t right with Beasley in Tennessee.

Beasley’s brief tenure in Tennessee ends with zero sacks in five games.

  1. That was a horrible signing for all to see. With him failing to actually show up and all that. You think a man would care a little when he is getting paid 10 million for a year or work. I wonder if Seattle will sign him?

  2. The Titans took on the Bengals who had the worse OL in the NFL leading the NFL in sacks. And those guys weren’t available so played against backups and yet Beasley couldn’t pressure Burrow.

  3. Perfect cautionary tale for today’s entitled athlete. Show up with tons of fanfare and $$$ without earning it….and then mailing it in.

    From Hero to Zero in hardly any time.

    For only 10 million why even get out of bed in the morning?

    The 2020 Albert George Haynesworth.

    I guess that means the Buc’s will sign him.

  6. It was some retirement money for Vic Beasley.
    Now he can get fat on some beach somewhere since he obviously doesn’t want to play in the NFL.

  7. That was a weird situation right from the start with him apparently dropping off the face of the earth at the start of camp. Probably best to just admit it was a mistake and cut him loose.

  8. Yet this dude had 14 sacks in a season…..weird how the sack #s work out. Someone will turn this turd into a diamond! Maybe sneeeeky pete!

  9. Back to back drubbings and the Titans are now releasing players and searching for kickers. Amazing how you go from being called the best of the AFC to player shuffling so quickly.

  10. I don’t see why the Bucs would bother.

    DE 93 SUH, NDAMUKONG 94 Davis, Khalil
    DE 92 Gholston, William 79 O’Connor, Patrick
    OLB 90 PIERRE-PAUL, JASON 98 Nelson, Anthony
    OLB 58 Barrett, Shaquil 49 Gill, Cam

  11. Falcons could’ve drafted Gurley instead of Vic Beasley. Guessing they might’ve chosen to run the ball in the 4th quarter of SB 51 if they had a healthy TG in the backfield. Instead, they had Beasley huffing and puffing in vain as Brady torched Atlanta even worse than General Sherman did.

  12. He will be happy in Green Bay.they need all the help they can get along with a new defensive coach who isnt so stuck on his lousey schemes against the run.

  13. the titans were idiots for signing this guy! it was determined, here in atl, that he really didn’t wanna play football anymore! he was a joke! never developed any pass rush moves or techniques! he has no tenacity or “dog” in him! he needs to ride off into “bolivian!”

  14. I watched his entire career in Atlanta and have 2 observations:

    1) That 15-sack season was fueled by one game. Either 4 or 5 sacks in one game against the Broncos against a backup offensive tackle on what was a really bad offensive line.
    2) The whispers have been he just truly doesn’t love football they way you have to in order to make the sacrifices required to be really good. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it does reach the point where he should just be honest with himself and quit instead of taking money and not producing.

    Of course no one forced the Falcons and Titans to pay him. Falcons made a huge mistake by picking up his rookie option for 2019 and paying him something like 12 or 13 million dollars. One big reason why Dan Quinn is no longer the coach and Thomas Dimitroff is no longer the GM.
