Sounds like the Atlanta Falcons are moving on from Vic Beasley
Atlanta Falcons defensive end Vic Beasley more than likely is going to become former Atlanta Falcons defensive end, Vic Beasley.
At the start of the week at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff stated that the organization was unsure of what direction the club was going to go in regards to bringing him back or not.
Dimitroff went on to state the Beasley had impressed several within the front office with the way that he ended the year. There is no doubt that the fan base was happy to see him turn the corner after the bye-week as well.
However, for the franchise to state that they are unsure at this point if they want to bring Vic back tells us one of two things, either they have no desire to bring him back based on the total underwhelming body of work or Thomas Dimitroff has no plan in place for the future of this club and the Falcons are in bigger trouble than we think.
For argument sake, let’s assume that they have no desire to bring Vic Beasley back. Where do they go next?
At this point, the Atlanta Falcons have no room to be big players in free agency and the early rumors are the Falcons will take a corner in the first round of the draft.
Seeing Beasley’s time in the black and red is kind of bittersweet. A local kid who wanted to help make the Falcons a championship-winning franchise and he fell short. The incredible stat about his time in Atlanta is he recorded at least one sack in 28 of the 78 regular-season games he played. In those 28 games, the Atlanta Falcons were 19-9.
If Beasley was able to get to the quarterback in a game, there was a 68 percent chance that the Falcons were going to win the game. If only he could have been more consistent as a pass rusher. Hopefully, his new team will recognize his strengths and put him in a better position to succeed than Dan Quinn did in Atlanta.
Hopefully, the Atlanta Falcons won’t have to face him twice a year either.
