Jon Beason "I Want To Retire A Giant"

67 posts in this topic

it's an undisclosed pick.

 

undisclosed pick ≠ conditional pick

 

more than that...it's an undisclosed late round pick.

 

while it could be a conditional undisclosed pick, it's most likely a pick that has already been decided upon.

 

it's not going to be a third round. look at rounds 5-7.

 

 

 

Here's hoping nothing but the best for Jon Beason. If we somehow get a 5th rd pick for him,i'll be one happy camper.

Kinda stings a little...

 

But when it's all said and done, he'll get a one day contract to retire a Panther. This statement is business only. The Panthers organization is a family. And Beason loves it. There's a reason Steve Smith has stayed around so long, when he clearly could have made more money with more popularity, and maybe even a superbowl elsewhere.

I'm not so sure.

I've begun to think you really does have some hard feelings towards the organization.

You can rightly say that any team would have chosen Luke as a starter, but I doubt Beason would completely accept that (few competitors would).

And when you get right down to it, the team didn't have to draft Luke in the first place, did they?

I am also of the mindset that he was mad we drafted Kuechly and then moved him outside.  He should have no reason to jab us for anything..  We paid him for almost 3 years when he did nothing and it was a huge amount of money.  Honestly he should be grateful and is somewhat snarky instead.  Just shows you how entitled and spoiled these athletes are.

Just like any ex-panther I don't give a fug what he thinks. That being said I wish him the best but if your not a Panther than I couldn't care less about statements like his.

Happy for the guy, sad he is not out there for us but I like the guy and he's a ball player. He wants to go out there and win every down. Giants should be lucky, they will have this guy for a while. Hes a beast no doubt about it regardless of age, he has a few more years in the tank.

If that's truly how he feels then I am happy for him, and wish him the best through the rest of his career.

 

Honestly I'm just ready to find out what our compensation was and begin moving on, he is, so we should be too.

I remember when he held out when we drafted him.  I always got the notion that he wasn't wedded to the Panthers despite what he said over the years.  We stuck with him for years of non-production and paid him tens of millions for nothing. And this is what we get???

I, distinctively, remember you defending him when i was bashing him.. and his contract......

    • Mitchell would be a mistake IMO. He's too short to play with Walker. It would be the NBA's smallest backcourt. 
    • Look at this from Greg's viewpoint: 1. We did not draft or bring in a TE (many of us, including me, thought the team might bring in a young TE) Greg knows we have few options at this point. 2. Greg is about to retire (2-3 years) and his stock will never be higher.  He has led the team in receiving for a few years. 3. He knows there is cap room.  Gettlemen wants to carry  that over to re-sign 3 hog mollies for 2018; Olsen wants it now.) I think the Panthers lack of movement at TE has Olsen in a great negotiating position. Now let's take a look at the Panther's position: His quote about business and productivity could backfire on him. Businesses sign contracts for future services.  People sign them every day and honor them.  I may sign a long-term contract for less than I am worth, but in turn, I get security.  If you think you are worth more, don't sign.  I think the problem is the transparency over salaries.  If you know what Jacob Tamme made last year because his agent worked out a great deal, you can use that to negotiate a new deal for Olsen if you compare the numbers.  However, Tamme may have underperformed his deal, and it is erroneous to assume the performance of others based on their contracts is fair market value.  What they offer and what you take is fair market value. If Olsen wants a deal based on his productivity, remove his guaranteed money and make it incentive based. Take away the guarantees and make it possible for him to earn $10m--or $2m, depending on his productivity.  I am sure that he wants the security of the current deal and the Panthers to assume all risk.   Do you think the Raiders did not think that Jamarcus Russell's deal should equal productivity?  It is a gamble for both sides--a 4-5 year contract is security.  Guaranteed money you take for a promise to perform at your highest level for the length of the contract.  Olsen is not giving money back if he has a bad year, I assure you.  Contracts are not rewards, they only concern themselves with the now and the future. So where you ranked last year and the year before that---that simply means the Panthers made a wise investment in Greg Olsen.  I mean, if I invest in Cisco stock, buying it at $40 per share because it is expected to rise to $50 per share and it ends the year at $60, Cisco does not come to me and say, "We should have charged you more when you bought our shares--can we have an additional $8 per share?" THAT is business . Olsen should blame himself if he signed a lower deal than he is worth.  If he did not believe he was worth more then, why should the Panthers pay more now?  The Panthers paid him fair market value and he accepted the offer. I think it is bad practice to start paying people who outperform their contracts
