Once he had the microsurgery, I wondered if he'd ever come back, immediately followed by "if anyone can come back from that, it's Beason".  

 

I was surprised to see the news this morning, but after the shock I see its best for both sides (his and the Panthers).

 

He was one of our great players.

 

I hope he passes his physical and has success in NY.

Good post Zod. Panthers nation will always have a soft spot in our hearts for him. One of the best in his prime.

The guy hasn't played since Cam's rookie year. Exactly what are you going to miss? 

 

New Panthers fan, aye?

The guy was a stud. But for the last few years he has been a shell of himself, which is still pretty damn good, but not good enough the starting lineup of star LBs, and he would have never seen the Mike again in Carolina if he ever saw the field at all.

We are too talented at LB to use Beast at this point in his career. He was costing us money to ride the bench. And he's still to talented not to be starting somewhere. I gotta agree with SuperJ, this isn't the least bit surprising, and doesn't hurt nearly as much as Pep (who was starting and in the prime of his career). I'm just glad a) we got something for him instead of just letting him walk for nothing and B) give him a chance to be a contributor right now. I won't even say this is a tough pill to swallow. I'm not that sentimental, it was hands down the right move on all sides.

Long one of my favorite panthers. I'll root for the man wherever he goes and miss him all the same.

I hate to see Jon Beason go but if we're trading him then the staff must think he'll never be the same player he once was.I say good luck and best wishes to him,a real warrior for the Panthers and a credit to the community while playing here.

Beason is the model of the type of guys you want on your team.

The lifespan of a linebacker is usually a short one. He is the definition of a leader and a warrior.

Jon Beason was drafted the same year as Patrick Willis in San Francisco and Willis usually garnered all the praises of the talking heads while Beason consistently racked up comparable, if not better, numbers along the way.

 

Beason was the latest in what is becoming a Carolina Panther tradition- a middle linebacker who put it all on the field. The indomintable spirit of Sam Mills, the always full speed ahead Dan Morgan, the quick football mind of Jon Beason and now, Luke. Sure there were the odd years when a Michael Barrow or Lester Towns played the middle, Mark Fields even stepped into the middle on occasion. And who can forget Vinny Circiu and Chris Draft and Will Witherspoon... all of whom were called upon the fill the slot when Morgan was recuperating from yet another injury.

 

The fact is, the position has long been one of pride and excellence for the Panthers, and anyone who steps into the position should know who they have followed.
