Falcons cut ties with OLB Beasley, set to become free agent

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons have cut ties with outside linebacker Vic Beasley, who led the NFL in sacks in the team's run to the Super Bowl but didn't come close to matching that production over the last three seasons.

The decision announced Monday means the 27-year-old Beasley will become an unrestricted free agent when the new league year begins on March 18.

"As we continue to craft our 2020 roster, we'd like to thank Vic for five years of effort on behalf of our organization," general manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement.
