Atlanta Falcons minicamp gets underway Tuesday and runs through Thursday, June 13 in Flowery Branch. It's the team's final phase of the NFL's offseason program before reconvening for training camp at the end of July.

It should come as a delight to most fans as defensive end Vic Beasley, defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, wide receiver Julio Jones and linebacker Deion Jones all reported for Falcons' mandatory minicamp on Monday, despite not taking part in OTAs the previous weeks.

The name most fans have been clamoring to see at all the offseason programs has been Vic Beasley.

Here's what Falcons head coach Dan Quinn told The Midday Show about Beasley on Monday:

"I've had good communication with him. He knows the thing he needed to work on. We went through it in painstaking detail just, up-to, a month ago. We're anxious to get back, and he'll put forth some good work here over the next three days and we'll recapture it and get going on it again in training camp."

But what is that one "thing" Coach Quinn was referring to on Beasley needing to work on?

"I like giving Vic Beasley one thing to work on," Andy Bunker said. "What do you think that one thing is?"

"He's talking about that one move. You've got to find another one," Randy McMichael said. 

Randy noted comments made by NFL Network's Charlie Casserly who said Beasley was a one-dimensional pass rusher. 

"In this league you cannot win that way. You cannot be a consistent pass rusher with just one move."
