Need Help with deck

Just getting ready to start a project n the deck to install railings all around. I was about to start installing posts as the first part when I notice the support beam on the end of the deck (where I would connect the post to) is warped. Same for the other side. I took up a few boards and it appears the posts in the ground are not exactly straight so I am kind of stuck at this point. I have no plans to remove and replace the ground posts to make them straight. Any ideas on how to fix this?

the only thing I could think of is adding another 2x8 to the end and cutting & shaving it down until it is 100% straight and then I can connect the posts for the rails.

Any thoughts would be helpful and appreciated

Nevermind....I just realized (I have to check so I might be back again with this problem). I think the posts are on the second to last rail. If this is the case then I can take off the end rail (Get a new straight one) and shave a little off each cross beam so that it will lay straight.

If the post is on the end rail, I will be back with pics for help.

Cut the rail at the same angle if I understand your question correctly...
