The Atlanta Falcons could be moving on from its 2015 first-round pick sooner than expected.
ESPN’s Jordan Schultz reports that defensive end Vic Beasley is on the trade block.
Moving Beasley isn’t at all a bad move for the Falcons, a team themselves in tailspin and needing resources for 2020 to aid a turnaround.
Head coach Dan Quinn took it upon himself to tutor Beasley and try to help him regain his 2016 form, when he led the league in sacks. That hasn’t happened in the slightest, with the former Clemson star only posting up 1.5 sacks and eight tackles this season thus far.
A trade reminds you of when, last season, the Jacksonville Jaguars sent pass rusher Dante Fowler Jr. to the Los Angeles Rams for a 2019 third and 2020 fifth-round pick.
