The Tennessee Titans have added the edge pass rusher they need, adding outside linebacker Vic Beasley on a one-year deal.
The deal is reportedly worth $9.5 million.
Beasley has 37.5 career sacks in his five seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, including eight sacks a year ago for Atlanta.
That production was Beasley’s best season since 2016 when he had 15.5 sacks for the Falcons.
Tennessee has been needing help on the edge to pair with Harold Landry and young rusher Derick Roberson, who came on late in the year after being elevated from the practice squad.
Beasley should give the Titans a veteran presence on the edge, but at age 28 should have much more left in the tank that Cameron Wake, who signed with the Titans last off-season but was released last week after finishing 2019 on injured reserve.
Signing Beasley also means the Titans wont’ have to spend their first-round pick – No. 29 overall – on a pass rusher.
The Titans also have interest in their own unrestricted free agent, Kamalei Correa.
