Yeah man. The way he played last year wasn't the Beason I knew. He was very mediocre the games he played.

 

Not easy to tackle with a bum shoulder.

 

If he can get healthy this year you will see a complete turn around on the attitude towards him. Many people will begin back tracking.

Even if he is healthy is he worth the contract to play OLB? Does he want to play OLB and take a paycut? I know you know him personally, so have you heard him say anything?

 

I want a healthy Beason to stay here, love the dude, but is he worth that contract when we have so many other holes on the roster?

Unless you've ever voluntarily asked for a payout because your job duties changed, your opinion on this matter is not valid.


Don't blame someone for getting what they can on a contract. If you hate the contract, hate the people paying it. Not collecting it.

Oh how quick fans forget about an All-Pro LB. Is he overpaid? Sure, but he also earned the contract by being a Top 5 LB in the NFL and being our leader on defense.

Unless Beason refuses a restructure or paycut when G-Man finally approaches him about it, then I see nothing wrong with what he's doing. Players only have a limited-short window to make enough cash for retirement.

Yes...but in the NFL...what you did 3 years ago shouldn't hold much stock. Average career is only 3 years for a variety of reasons.

Beason hasn't had an average career, now has he? Jon has been unlucky these past two seasons with injuries but I'm not going to dismiss him for it yet.

I'm surprised nobody brought up the fact that Beason held out his rookie season. He's always wanted to make sure he was well compensated, and I can't really fault him for that. The blame here lies with Hurney.

Even if he is healthy is he worth the contract to play OLB?

 

An OLB with the most leadership ability on the entire team?

 

 

Yep.

 

Also, he can play all three LB positions should one of the other guys get injured.

All these articles about this bad Panthers contract and that bad Panthers contract should be filed under the same header: Marty Hurney and JR pay rediculous $$ because they were tired of hearing about how cheap they were in 2010. Those contracts were a simple yet costly statement. This organization committed a Rule #1 violation, don't let fans influence your decisions. 2009-2012 was an embarrassment and there are 2 guys to thank. The players are smart for taking advantage of the village idiot.

I don't think he was ever an All-Pro, but I may be wrong. I love me some Beason, but saying his contract isn't the worst one we've ever written is a little bit blinded by homerism. Like SCP said, I'm not gonna hate the man because of his contract, I'll be mad at those that wrote it. Like Angels fans being mad at Josh Hamilton because he can't play anymore. Not his fault the contract was offered. I hope he plays lights out, restructures and we keep him and go on to do great things. But I can see how, for some, it would appear the writing is on the wall for him leaving the team with a very sour taste in their mouths.

As others have said, next season Beason will have to restructure/take a pay cut. If he doesn't want to, he'll be cut and I highy doubt he'll get as much anywhere else.

 

Love Beason but he's on an awful contract. He'll have the 2nd highest cap hit on the team at 10.75M. That's way too much for an OLB. Not his fault but as they say, it's a business.

You KNOW this sht keeps Gett Dawg up at night. The Beason and CJ contracts are the last two elephants he'll have to deal with from the Hurney age.

Things change quickly in the NFL...

we already have our new MLB. Beason is a MLB if he can ever get healthly again....that isn't dismissing him.

Only place Beason has here would be to get healthy and be a reasonably priced OLB....that doesn't seem like something anyone should get there hopes up for

If you are Beason...why not take every dime you can...get released and go play MLB somewhere.

Makes sense. People get mad at you for saying that but why wouldnt he?
