First...I will miss the Beast and he was a warrior for us when he was healthy....I sincerely hope he does well and he will be missed. DG is changing the culture around here and is leaving the old ways far behind. Either you can play or you can't...if you can't he cuts ties.No more buddy system here,doesn't matter who you are.Team comes first and foremost. No more ridiculous contracts to bleed us dry for years.If you earn it you will get paid (at market rates mind you).This is exactly what this franchise needed to be successful. Soon all the crap that was part of the old regime will be history..and the Panthers can move forward in a positive way.

A WHOLE PIE!

I agree about DG changing the culture but I also think they are doing Beason a solid here.

Agree SCP....Jon wasn't going to play here. DG gave him the opportunity to finish his career at MLB instead of drifting away on the sidelines here this year.

it already came out that Beason asked to be traded. he wanted the chance to start right now.

Meh, he hasn't proven much yet. He has Hurney magic'd a lot of stuff. If Hurney had been retained he would have done some of the same stuff.

Hurney would have traded Beason under these circumstances as well.....I don't see why we would believe he wouldn't have.

Let's see how he handles Hardy and others....he hasn't shown his cards in regards to what really made Hurney a bad GM.

The biggest difference is that RR made a roster decision and instead of the GM sitting on a guy eating a ton of cap to attempt to buy time and save face..he decided to trade him and get what he could at the time. Hurney would have tried to convince RR to give Beas another chance so that the contract he signed him to wouldn't look bad. If Hurney was still here we'd have a 75% Beason still out there playing.

I love the new culture. It'll be interesting to see what we do with the RBs. One of them is gone next year. Almost no doubt in my mind. If J Stew comes back and starts tearing it up I wouldn't be surprised if Gettledog tried to trade him for a late round pick as well. He's trying to clear cap room for OL and possibly another WR this offseason IMO.

I agree, I just think he was worth more. I don't think him for Nicks straight up is that ridiculous of a proposal. Two disgruntled and oft injured players get a fresh start.

I don't know man. Just can't get over this.

beason wants to start.  he isn't unseating luke kuechly, so gettleman traded him off to a team where he will get a chance to start.

 

a real travesty would have been gettleman telling beason to stuff it with his request and that he gets to rot on the bench only to be let go next offseason and left looking for a team.

Beason: 7

Nicks:   32

 

Little lopsided there

Yeah, it's a little lopsided.

I'd still feel slighted to a degree if we got Nicks straight up. Call me crazy

Beason was/is worth to this team next to nothing.

 

I can't believe that we got something for him at all.

 

Don't get me wrong, I loved him when he was healthy, but that is over.  We got a pick, got rid of some money on the cap, and made sure that we didn't have a locker room issue over a player thinking he is good enough to start.

 

We all did the right thing here, except for maybe the Giants.

It's refreshing the Panthers are serious about putting the best team on the field.

Only one player on this roster would I oblige even if he wasn't still at his peek so he could retire a Panther.

I really wish people would stop talking about how much money we saved with this deal. We saved a grand total of $00.00

We're on the hook for 8 mil of dead money. Read the articles out there by the pros. Don't take my word for it.
