I said Beason as a OLB wasn't one of the best in the NFL. That's all.
He doesn't have a resume on play suggesting anything outside of MLB in the NFL.
The cost of Beason really isn't worth giving him a shot sadly
I agree with that last statement---I think we are stuck with a player who will never earn his salary. However, he is a pro bowl LB and he needs to play. I love Beason, but I thought the contract was dumb in many ways. I was very frustrated when Marty went on his spending spree to keep players from leaving him. Jerry should have thrown him out with Fox, but I digress.
I think Beason has the intelligence and work ethic to become one of the better OLBs in the NFL if he is healthy. When he played outside for brief stints, he was good, just not Jon Beason good. He is such a leader, he makes everyone else better. He looked new to OLB when he played there and I questioned whether he should not be on the other side, so I see your point.
