The Atlanta Falcons say bye to Vic Beasley as they sign a new pass rusher, Dante Fowler.  

Duane does a quick comparison of Beasley and Fowler’s career stats being that they both came from the same draft class. 

 

Dante Fowler: 25yrs old 

  • Third-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
  • Career-high of 11.5 sacks for the Los Angeles Rams last season. 
  • Fowler has recorded 141 tackles, 34 tackles for a loss and 27.5 sacks.

Vic Beasley: 28yrs Old in July 

  • Eighth overall in 2015 draft pick. 
  • Led the league with 15.5 sacks in 2016.
  • A combined 10 sacks in 2017 & 2018 season 
  • Finished 2019 with 8 sacks 

Vic Beasley is reported to sign with the Tennessee Titans as the Falcons will sign Dante Fowler for almost twice as much money they paid Beasley. Duane points out again, another bond with Dan Quinn and Fowler dating back to college; Dan Quinn helped Fowler recruit to attend University of Florida. 

Fowler will work alongside Takk McKinley as primary pass rushers.
