Beason Compensation: 7th round pick

246 posts in this topic

It was obvious he wasn't giving it his all on the field in order to be traded.  I'm just happy we can  move on now.  Good luck Beason except when you play us.

Beason's gone, we got something in return and opened up a roster spot................mission accomplished!

 

Move on!

Well, the best we were going to get was a fifth anyway, and that was a long shot.

It's over with, he's off the books now, and I'm ready to move on. I just hope he isn't bitter at all, because he has zero reason to be.

We bundle two sevens for someone's six come April. Draft another impact guy like The Kraken, profit.

I am wondering though why the compensation has been so under wraps unless there are some sort of escalators based on his playing time or performance in New York, which I assume he'll achieve as he's been playing a bit there. If it was a flat seven I would've thought it would have just been announced at the time of the deal, unless Gettleman genuinely was doing Jon and his old team a solid, knew he was getting fleeced, and didn't want to deal with the fan backlash, which I highly doubt he gives two sh!ts about.

Good move. Now we have a pick in all 7 rounds for the 1st time in 4 years. Gettleman did as well as he could considering the circumstances.

Beason is worth way more than that to the Giants.  Dave's biggest feat in the Beason situation was taking him off the books next year and beyond, regardless of compensation.

Not a very happy Beason fan then thinking about it in retrospect. . .

 

 

-Holds out as a rookie - gets a big contract

-Gets another big contract when that one is up.

-Injured for over a year, partly his own doing

-leaves and we get a 7th?

 

Fahhhhhk

 

 

Beas you better fuggin speak well of us .. . . except game day against us, I understand that. . . a dude better fuggin speak well of C-Town.

Beason was downright unstoppable in 08 and 09. He was damn good in 2010 but the entire team sucked so meh.

 

From then on, he didn't do anything. He would have been gone after this year anyway, may as well get something out of it.

    • VERY impressive. This was 6 months work last year, intermittent fasting and getting after it with a friend of mine, she's ruthless

    • My worry isn't coming off the bench vs starting, it is Clifford playing him PERIOD. Clifford is absolutely terrible about giving young guys the burn they need to develop. Even when you had guys like Bismack looking like they were on the verge of figuring things out and averaging some great numbers per minute, Clifford wouldn't know what to do with them. Granted we haven't always had the best of young or rookie talent around here but NOTHING Cliff has done in his time here tells me he knows WTF to do with a player that isn't a 5 year vet. And seriously.. nothing against the MAN, he seems like a great person, but I'm 1000% done with the MKG experiment. He has taken up a roster spot long enough. Ill take someone that plays 3/4 of his defense and can actually put the ball in the bucket once in a while. Or, ya know, get the other team to play A LITTLE defense on them. His presence has gotten the idiot gm to overlook several FAR BETTER prospects over the years just because we don't want to admit he is a total BUST for where he was drafted. WAY TOOO MUCH EGO is wrapped up between the front office and MKG and its choking the life out of this franchise at times.
    • Na, he'll probably get picked in next years Draft.  Next years Draft is so bad, they even have Pinson getting Drafted
