Taking a look at the Tennessee Titans deal with Vic Beasley.
The Tennessee Titans don’t usually sign players to one year deals so early in free agency, but for some reason they made an exception for Vic Beasley.
Honestly, when you think about the whole thing it is curious. Sure, the Titans needed an EDGE, but not someone like Beasley.
No offense to him, but the Titans needed a base down defender whose Pros and Cons list started with the ability to create negative plays vs the run. Instead, they opted to spend money on a guy who is asked to get after the quarterback and who is probably going to see the sidelines more than the field.
So why did they do it? Why would the Titans jump in on Beasley despite him not really being what they needed to focus on at that point in free agency, and why would they structure the deal in such a different way than what we are used to seeing from Jon Robinson and the front office?
The only reason I can think of is that Jon Robinson saw this as a great value and thought it was a great opportunity to add a pass rusher at a discount price.
But did they get a good price? There are a few things that we have to talk about before we can figure that out.
