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.

Free-Falling Giants Have to Shift Expectations, Redefine Success

Sep 15 2014 4:35pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The New York Giants are all too familiar with rock bottom. They spent some time there last September and October. In case you've already repressed that memory, the G-Men started 0-6 last season, ranking at or near the bottom of the league in pretty much every offensive and defensive category.  They're only 0-2 this year, and they've been slightly more competitive, but the reality is the Giants a ...
