Beason a June 1st cut?

74 posts in this topic

A healthy old version of Beason is...

He isn't better if not on the field. He isn't better at 80% than a 100% Anderson. Not with Luke calling the D IMO.

What???? James Anderson has been a JAG ever since he has been here except for the year when half the team was on injury reserve. Not a impact player at all, put Kuechly and Davis on the field with him and you couldn't even tell if Anderson actually played at all this year. At least a hurt Beason made SOME plays before he went to IR, it was just more bad ones than good ones but i definitely got a glimpse of what Beason used to bring to the table, it just his injuries held him back this year.

Amd not once has Beason said he has had a problem with moving to another position and Kuechly taking his responsibilities or role. He has actually been very encouraging and given him a lot of support so i dont know why people keep bringing up this notion about him being to stubborn to move. Beason has never been a selfish player or cancer. People need to quit making up stuff to support their arguments.

Agreed. I've never thought Anderson was anything than a average Lb, put ANYONE beside Davis, Kuechly, and they would look serviceable. And then you have those people who say "Well, Anderson was top 5 in tackles a season ago, yeah that's because there was no one who COULD tackle, so his stats are inflated, tell me how many times have you seen Anderson make a TFL? If Beason can tackle properly, and he's okay with a reduced role at OLB, then I say keep him. He's a thumper. Trade/release Anderson.

In fact, I was more impressed with Jason Philips than James Anderson.

Could happen. Honestly none of us, including the local sports reporters, have any clue on what is going to be happening. A new GM throws everything for a loop with no real precedent to look at.

Beason still has 12 m in signing bonuses as well as 3.75 m in guaranteed salary this up coming season. Cap hit would be 15.75 over two years. So 7.75 and 8 would be the hits.

according to an earlier post you subtract the base salary from the signing bonus, and then spread that figure over 2 years. So that would make his 12mil figure drop to 8.25 spread over 2 years that is 4.12 mil and 4.13mil

Deangelo might be the Jun 1 guy. I see Beason as a restructure along with Gross

His spot is not gone. Beason came into the NFL as an an OLB and not the MLB. People/Fans seam to forget that. Hes an slight upgrade over Anderson who has been a constant talent on the Defense. 2011 was for this Achilles tendon 2012 it was for his right knee and left shoulder. Two completely different issues and yes he can and will come back from that.

I think its so sad that you people praise him for his first 4 seasons and now think his basically crap due to injuries. The only reason he has 3 Pro Bowls and not 4 is due the teams horrible outing in 2010.

The question i have for Beason is, will he take a pay cut and move to OLB? Thats the question.
