Apparently you didn't read the entire article, Beason even said he wants to say to earn that contract.

Beason gets 25 million no matter what, it doesn't matter if he gets cut. He wants to earn the contract.


Of course he wants to stay, he's got $25 miillion non guaranteed dollars left on that contract.
Don't be a blind homer.
Last year and this Beason will have accounted for 19 tackles combined.

How about stay, and redo your contract in a performance based fashion. You know, stay and earn all that Hurney green.

He's probably already received all his guaranteed money. The big obstacle, as pointed out above, is the acceleration if we ship him out.

In any case, we need to make a football/business decision regarding Jon, not an emotional one.

He probably will re-do his contract, but to insinuate that we need to let a guy go as good as Beason is absurd. Apparently everyone just chose to forget about Davis's return from 3 ACL injuries. If Davis can return from multiple injuries in less than two years then so can a younger and more athletic Jon Beason.

If we switched to a 3-4, I'd wanna hang on to Anderson.


Davis - Kuechly - Beason - Anderson

Johnson - Star - Hardy


Respectfully disagree that Anderson could play olb in a 34, better suited for inside best suited for olb 43

The huddle doesn't know the difference between a 3-4 OLB and a 4-3 OLB.

Beason/Keek/Davis that's a dream team lb core right there. Glad to hear he wants to stay. Probably gonna have to restructure that contract a bit, but Jons a team player. It'll get worked out.

Here's the problem...we have $12 million of unallocated bonus we have to absorb even in a restructure, so he is going to have to be willing to play for peanuts. We could, for example, sign him for 4 more years. The $4 million per year unallocated from the old contract would hit our cap each of the first 3 years of the new deal without him getting even $1 in cash. So how much more could we afford to absorb against our cap so he could have some salary? Maybe $1 million for those first 3 years? Do you think Jon wants to play starting LB for a million a year?

Hurney did a good job of painting us into a corner on this one.
