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.

that's fuging retarded, he's worth more as a backup on this team than a 7th imo... even for this year... given our injury history, fuck.

 

I guess that's probably all we could get for him but damn.

Agree it sucks.

Losing him and getting nothing back would have sucked worse.

 

He was never gonna get back to being what he used to be playing OLB here.

 

Sometimes you just have to cut your losses.

given where the Giants will finish...it's effectively a 6th round pick.
