When the free agency frenzy this offseason started for the NFL, I kept being told Panthers linebacker Jon Beason, who is making a ridiculous $10 million a year, had zero incentive to restructure his deal. I couldn’t have disagreed more and all my arguments as to why are coming to fruition with all his teammates, yet Beason hasn’t and/or won’t.
Carolina should tell him, if you restructure your deal this year by taking a 50 percent pay cut, we will guarantee you money next year, as well. They could also load it with incentives and reward him for helping out the team this year.
However, apparently that’s not going to happen. By all accounts, Beason isn’t going to restructure. And if true, that speaks volumes.
And because of that, regardless of what type of season he has, the Panthers should cut him at the end of the season. He won’t help them, so they shouldn’t help him.
He’s simply not worth it.
Pretty harsh, and as much as I love Beason I can't find it in me to disagree.
