Falcons' Vic Beasley: Moving to strongside linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Beasley will be moving from defensive end to strongside linebacker in 2016, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Beasley set the Falcons' team record for sacks by a rookie with four last season in his 16 games at defensive end, but the team wants to move him to better utilize his skill set. Though he's moving positions, he'll remain a pass rusher, with the team playing him in a hybrid role that could see him play defensive end in obvious passing situations. Brooks Reed and O'Brien Schofield were the team's strongside linebackers last season, but the pair combined for just 47 tackles and two sacks, low production that may be the reason for Beasley's move.
