Beason Compensation: 7th round pick

Recommended Posts

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.

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, fug.

 

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.

Beason may end up with more tackles than Luke this season. Highly unlikely, but Luke isn't a machine this year. Good thing stats aren't what matters. It's Luke's play that matters.

Jesus Dave, at least make them work for it. He's worth more than a 7th sitting on our bench. I don't give a fug if he wanted out. 

 

I disagree, Barry.  A former pro bowler on the bench can be a huge distraction--

His leadership on the team this year would have been worth more than a 7th .. plus we gave away an all-pro LB to a team in the same Conference where he will thrive for years .. including when they play us!

Realistically, how much leadership are you gonna get from a guy who wants out?

 

As far as that topic goes, maybe if we didn't have Kuechly and Davis it would worry me.  As it stands, not so much.

 

And frankly, I've got serious doubts about Beason "thriving for five more years".
