Titans add pass rushers Beasley, Crawford

The Tennessee Titans officially added Vic Beasley on Tuesday, and they reportedly signed another former Atlanta Falcons edge rusher, Jack Crawford, as well.

Beasley’s contract was announced by the team. Terms weren’t revealed, but multiple media outlets reported on March 17 that Beasley landed a one-year, $12 million deal with $9.5 million guaranteed.

Agent David Canter announced Crawford’s deal on Twitter, but again, terms were not announced.

Beasley, 27, recorded 37.5 sacks, 36 tackles for loss, 11 forced fumbles, 156 tackles and two touchdowns in 78 games (60 starts) over five seasons with the Falcons. Last season, he had eight sacks, 42 tackles and two forced fumbles while appearing in 16 games and making 15 starts.

He was picked No. 8 overall by the Falcons in the 2015 NFL Draft out of Clemson. Beasley posted five sacks in both 2017 and 2018 after registering a career-high 15.5 sacks and earning first-team All-Pro honors in 2016.

Crawford, 31, spent the past three seasons with the Falcons after stints with the Oakland Raiders (2012-13) and Dallas Cowboys (2014-16). He played every game last season and made four starts while amassing 24 tackles, a half-sack, five quarterback hits and a career-high three passes defensed.

In 2018, Crawford notched a career-best six sacks and made the only interception of his career. Overall, he has 137 tackles, 16 sacks, 21 tackles for loss and two forced fumbles in 93 games (27 starts).

Oakland selected Crawford in the fifth round of the 2012 draft out of Penn State.
