Beason Traded To Giants PDF Print

Two weeks after benching Jon Beason, the Carolina Panthers are on the verge of a trade with a team that has a need at linebacker.


The Panthers have agreed to a trade that would send Beason to the New York Giants in exchange for a late-round draft pick. The deal is contingent on Beason passing a physical, which is no certainty considering his checkered injury history.

After splitting time with Chase Blackburn in the Panthers' first two games this season, Beason played just one snap two weeks ago against the Giants. It's ironic that he's been replaced by a player the Giants allowed to walk in free agency.

Although Beason started all 64 games while earning three Pro Bowl selections from 2007 to 2010, he has played just seven games since tearing his Achilles tendon in the 2011 season opener.
