It took longer than expected, but veteran linebacker Vic Beasley found a new team. Beasley, who was released by Tennessee Titans at the beginning of November, signed with Las Vegas Raiders.
Beasley, who was the No. 8 pick in 2015, won’t get to suit up for Raiders just yet as he landed on the team’s practice squad.
Beasley joined Tennessee on a one-year, $9 million deal in the offseason and was supposed to play a big role in the team’s pass rush. However, the 28-year-old player’s spell with the franchise started on a bad note right away. He first failed to show up for the beginning of the training camp and then went on to miss the first three weeks of the 2020 NFL season.
When Beasley finally got into action, he didn’t make the expected impact and struggled to get to the opposing quarterback. He ended up recording zero sacks and had just three tackles to show for before the organization decided to move on.
Despite the sour ending, Beasley went on Twitter on Monday to thank the Titans “for an amazing opportunity.”
Raiders will now hope that Vic Beasley’s struggles in Tennessee resulted from a bad fit and that he can rediscover the previous form in Las Vegas. Beasley totaled 37.5 sacks since becoming a pro and a First-Team All-Pro selection from 2016.
