NFL: Panthers, Giants Nearing Deal for LB Jon Beason

The Carolina Panthers and New York Giants are reportedly nearing a deal for linebacker Jon Beason.

Carolina Panthers linebacker Jon Beason could soon be a New York Giant.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants are on the verge of acquiring Beason from the Carolina Panthers for a late-round draft pick -- believed to be one in the seventh round -- in 2014

Vacchiano cites two sources in his report. The first one says Beason was already informed of the trade and says the linebacker is now packing his bags for New York.

The second one informed Vacchiano the trade would only be made official once Beason passes a physical which most likely be scheduled for Friday.

NFL.com's Chris Wesseling reports the trade is "contingent" on Beason's physical exam.

Wesseling also adds the trade makes sense considering Panthers GM Dave Gettleman and Giants GM Jerry Reese worked together previously in New York.

In Beason, the Giants get a three-time Pro Bowler who should help the team improve its shoddy defense, currently ranking dead-last in the NFL.  

New York has also struggled against the run, allowing an average of 122.5 rushing yards -- ranked 28th in the league

The main challenge for Beason, should he officially become a Giant, is to stay healthy. He has played in a combined five games in the past two seasons before undergoing season-ending microfracture surgery, per CBS Sports' John Breech.

Prior to his two injury-plagued seasons, Beason signed a six-year, $51 million contract. He reportedly took a substantial pay cut a few months back which reduced his annual salary from $5.25 million to $1 million.

This latest figure should fit the Giants' payroll as they can still accommodate $1.3 million under the salary cap, per Vacchiano.

Changes That the New York Giants Must Make Moving Forward

Nov 4 2014 1:33am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

The New York Giants aren’t a very good football team. And in other “you don’t say?” news, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Seriously, though, the 2014 season might not be the Giants year, but it doesn’t mean that they have to continue in this vicious cycle that seems to have enveloped them and has their fans screaming for changes that may or may not ever come. Who could blame the fans? How much longer should the fans be subjected to th ...

Indianapolis Colts vs. NY Giants: Breaking Down New York's Game Plan

Oct 29 2014 9:07pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The NFL is a funny sport. Think about it for a few seconds. Every team gets just 16 regular-season games to show off to the world the results of the blood, sweat and tears that are shed during the other 349 days of the year that are spent planning, plotting and hoping for the best. So when a team—yes, we’re looking at you, you 3-4 New York Giants—comes out of the gate slowly, it’s not only a cause for concern, but it’s also a sou ...

Reemergence of LeSean McCoy and Riley Cooper Has the Eagles Back on Track

Oct 13 2014 2:12pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

I was beginning to worry about LeSean McCoy.  Prior to Sunday, running against stacked defensive boxes and behind a depleted offensive line, the Pro Bowl Philadelphia Eagles running back was in the biggest rut of his career.  Between Week 3 and Week 5, McCoy had a total of just 120 yards on 53 carries. Among the 51 players who had at least 20 rushing attempts during that span, McCoy's 2.3 average ranked 49th.  For the league's reigning rushing champion, th ...

The statue, which, according to VisitPhilly.com, was originally created as a prop for Rocky III, reminds its native sons and daughters of what toughness, determination and resiliency can lead to if one embraces the notion of hard work and the never-ending quest to be great.  That’s a concept embraced ...
