Beasley, Falcons part ways
The Atlanta Falcons announced Monday that they are cutting ties with former Adairsville High and Clemson University star Vic Beasley. As a result, Beasley will become an unrestricted free agent March 18. Beasley led the NFL in sacks in the Falcons’ run to Super Bowl LI, but his production has not matched that success over the past three seasons.
The Clemson All-American was the overall No. 8 pick in the first round of the NFL draft in 2015. He had eight sacks this past season for Atlanta as the Falcons started the year 1-7, finished 7-9, and missed the playoffs.
