The Tennessee Titans entered the training camp last week but not all players reported to the team. According to the Titans’ head coach Mike Vrabel, the organization is still waiting for their big offseason acquisition Vic Beasley Jr. to show up.

The Titans signed Beasley back in March to a one-year, $9.5-million contract. The 28-year-old linebacker later took part in the team’s virtual offseason workouts but surprisingly hasn’t been engaged with the organization since.

Speaking with reporters on Wednesday, Vrabel confirmed Beasley is a “no show” but expects him to report eventually.

“He’s not here. Everybody else is. He’s under contract, and we expect him to be here. I have not reached out or had much conversation with him,” said Vrabel. “We still look forward to getting him here and coaching him when he gets here. We want to coach him and want him to be a part of the football team.”

The Titans’ general manager Jon Robinson previously issued a statement saying that he had a conversation with Beasley, who confirmed he has the intention to join the team before the season starts.

Tennessee had big hopes for Vic Beasley in 2020, hoping to team him up with last year’s standout Harold Landry in order to increase the efficiency of their pass rush.

Beasley, who was No.8 pick in 2015, spent the previous five seasons with Atlanta Falcons. During that time, he totaled 156 tackles, 37.5 sacks, 11 forced fumbles, and one defensive touchdown.
