Trade him for a 7th. Better to unload that contract this year and rolling over the savings towards next year than keeping him.

From what I am hearing, teams want Beasley and our 2020 4th round pick, for a 2027 6th and a 2028 7th rounder. Sounds like a pretty good deal right now.

This is laughably sad, but that’s what you get when you don’t know how to scout players.  
 

Shame on all y’all for clamoring for us to draft this guy.  Shame!

Draft is a crap shoot either way, even the best of the best you can go back and tear apart horrible players or entire drafts.  

Not like any other pass rusher from that 2015 draft has done extremely well either.  

 

Hind sight is 20/20 with this stuff.

Dimitroff has got to go.  We all know Quinn is gone, but Dimitroff better be gone after this season also.

Do you actually believe Beasley is still here because Dimitroff wanted him and his $12 million baggage?  That's all Quinn, dude.  If Dimitroff should be fired its because he didn't challenge Blank and Quinn on some of the bad decisions made to accommodate Quinn.

At least Fowler and Dupree seem to be on the uptick...

Beasley been a ghost since 16.

I'm not gonna lie, I wanted Vic to be drafted by us in the worst way and felt vindicated when he had that 15 sack season, but in no way did I forsee this lack of production/drive coming from him.

Hurts bad, man.

There are visible traits that Beasley showed in college that should’ve been clear signs to stay away.  Beasley rose up draft boards after his combine performance.  His tape was awful.

And the draft is a crapshoot, but most of ours with this regime have been just crap.  Our scouting department is bottom tier.

His tape wasn't awful at all. 

He actually knew how to bend in college. He's seemingly developed rigor mortis in the pros. 

But seriously, watch his college tape again. He was the no brainer pick there.

Yeah, we have some hindsight posts happening.  Vic was a no brainer pick there, although probably turned out to be a square peg round hole as a 4-3 edge rusher.

Exactly. He fits that Vonn Miller role and that's really it. 

The Falcons did not help his progression either by turning him into a drop linebacker for a season and a half.
