Beasley worked out with Ware this offseason to improve
- According to ESPN’s Vaughn McClure, Atlanta Falcons edge defender Vic Beasley worked out with the retired DeMarcus Ware at Von Miller’s pass-rush summit in June. Beasley is attempting to improve his “get off’ and overall game. Last season Beasley lead the league in sacks and was vital in the Falcons’ run to the super bowl.
- Beasley wasn’t as consistent rushing the passer as his placement as the NFL sack leader might suggest. His pass-rush productivity of 10.4 ranked 32nd out of 110 qualifying edge defenders. He notched 45 total pressures on 388 pass-rush snaps.
- Overall Beasley was a solid contributor for the Falcons in 2016. His 74.2 overall grade ranked 50th out of 110 qualifying edge rushers. Beasley struggled defending the run in 2016. His 41.8 run-defense grade ranked 94th among qualifying edge defenders and his 4.1 run-stop percentage ranked 95th out of 113 qualifiers.
