What about Vic Beasley?
Right now, I am operating under the assumption that Beasley isn’t going to be a factor for the Titans this season. Whether that is because he shows up late to camp or whether that is because he doesn’t who up at all, I think we all need to take a step back and reduce whatever role we thought Beasley might have with Tennessee.
Let’s say that he is in camp with the Titans and he fully commits and he is ready to go Week 1. How can Beasley and Clowney both co-exist?

I think the Titans starting EDGEs in this scenario would be Harold Landry and either Kamalei Correa or Jadeveon Clowney.
These two would probably combine for at least 80% of the snaps on the opposite EDGE, with someone like Reggie Gilbert or D’Andre Walker making up the rest and occasionally subbing in for Landry.
On sub-package downs, I think the starters on the EDGE would be Landry and Jadeveon Clowney, which should be a great way to help recreate that outstanding production that Landry had when Wake was on the opposite side.
Then I think the Titans would go full-on Nashville Predators mode and sub in Vic Beasley and Derick Roberson as a tandem.
After that, they would probably mix and match the EDGEs and play around with Clowney or Rashaan Evans standing up in the A-gap, but that would likely be how they deployed their EDGEs with everyone in the fold.
The main takeaway though should be that the Titans don’t really need Beasley or Clowney, but if they had to choose one of the two that they need less, it would be Vic Beasley who probably doesn’t factor into the defense as much as we may have initially thought.
