However, the Falcons decided that they are going to stick with the former first-round pick, even though he has just one sack this season.
Rapoport notes that is is also a sign that the Falcons haven’t given up on this season.
Beasley, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Falcons back in 2015. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $14.5 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $705,000 for the 2018 season.
The Falcons picked up Beasley’s fifth-year option worth $14,200,000 for the 2019 season.
In 2018, Beasley has appeared in seven games for the Falcons and recorded seven tackles, one sack and a pass defense.
