It’s been a rough year and no one has been exempt from this, including former Clemson standout Vic Beasley. It started back in March when the Tennessee Titans signed Beasley, the former first round pick of the Atlanta Falcons, to a one-year deal worth $9.5. Fast forward less than eight months later and he not only had been cut but also had no team interested in adding him to their active roster.
That was until the Raiders decided to add him to their practice squad. Las Vegas has been recently nicknamed Clemson West due to all of the Tiger players they have added. The list of other Clemson players in Las Vegas include Hunter Renfrow, Clelin Ferrell, Trayvon Mullen, John Simpson and Tanner Muse.
To say that Beasley’s NFL career, outside of 2016, has been disappointing would be an understatement to say the least. The former Tiger who was picked eighth overall by the Falcons had just eight sacks last season and he had only five sacks in each of the previous two seasons after being selected as an All-Pro in 2016 when he had 15.5 sacks. The Raiders are hoping that Beasley will be able to get back to his 2016 form, give them an added pass rusher, and prosper out there like the some of the other Tiger players above have.
