The discussion was about Luke and his play at the Mike not on the outside. You should have specified that you were only talking about the first four games.
You guys should probably go back and look at his splits. When he played outside he was frequently on the sideline because he got caught in the wrong place too many times on passing downs. Read his interview where he talks about being off the field on 3rd downs...
Will Beason be a Panther next year?

I think that Beason will remain a Panther if he's willing to restructure his contract and move positions.
And if he can get paid elsewhere and be the MLB.....I would think he would prefer to leave.
<insert random reply....but but but Beason loves us and will give us a discount and play a position he doesn't love>

Look at this and answer the question yourself:
7/29/2011: Signed a six-year, $51.338 million contract. The deal contains $25 million guaranteed, including a $20 million signing bonus.
2012: $1.25 million
2013: $5.25 million
2014: $6.5 million
2015: $7.5 million
2016: $8.75 million
2017: Free Agent
Let's just put it this way- release Beason and it becomes a cap hit unlike much of the league has never seen before. The cap hit would make Sean Gilbert's look minimal.
Yeah no way he wont be on the roster.
To release him you'd have to instantly eat the remaining pro rated portion of that massive signing bonus. Probably about 12 million bucks.
He'll have to play somewhere other than MLB because we have to ride out the Hurney magic on this one.
Let's just hope Beason can return to full health and contribute.
This contract and Dwill and Stewart's contract are just the symptoms of the Hurney disease.
Far over valuing those two positions both in the draft and at contract time.

The problem with restructuring is that it converts salary into a signing bonus which increases the cap in future years. So we could lower his salary from next year's 5.25 million to something like 2.5 million by converting 3 million of the salary to a signing bonus which increases the signing bonus in future years from 4 million to 5 million.
His cap next year goes from 9.5 million to 6.5 million but it bumps up his future yearly signing bonus cap from 4 to 5 million without considering the salary.
