    Can't blame him for wanting to go home.

    Love this. Vic Beasley has become one of the worst D-lineman in the league. Now they can cycle him with Irvin. Apparently he took a paycut, after other offers, to play in Atlanta. Awesome.

    Hilarious cause the Beasley hype train was going into overdrive 2 years ago.

    Why wouldn’t it be? He lead the league in sacks in just his third (or was it his second) season.

    Right but people were way too quick to say some of the things that were said about him. It was impressive but caused an unnecessary amount of hot takes and hype.

    Tough not to get excited about Clemson’s all time sacks leader getting 15.5 sacks in just his second season, but whatever.

    Not the sacks but the forced fumbles, QB hits and pressure. I think him being a 5 or 6 sack guy is more realistic. Biggest issue isn't the lack of sacks, it's that he's not really providing anything.

    Totally. Only 3 sacks and only a shell of his former self. But, cost nothing to get him to his hometown team and play for his former coach whom he adores playing for. He turned down larger offers from the Patriots and Steelers to come to Atlanta. Sounds like he could be rejuvenated.

    His issues are largely like Beasley's. He isn't disruptive anymore. Maybe he puts it together but he needs to be used sparingly.

    Dan Quinn was also his former DC in Seattle. So, he knows the system and how he will fit in it.

    Keeps the both of them fresher by being able to cycle. Plus, based on his decision to turn down other teams, and playing for a coach who's system suits him, maybe he'll catch a spark. Hell, for the cost, he'll be worth it with just a few key stops. If not, not a huge loss to the Falcons. Beasley already sucks and Irvin signed for cheap.
