Beason Compensation: 7th round pick

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--

Gettleman gave him to them. Embarrassing

Agree it sucks.

Losing him and getting nothing back would have sucked worse.

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".

I don't know why it couldn't have been a play time based trade. He plays less then a certain amount of snaps this year it's a seventh, more it's a sixth. But whatever, he wasn't going to play here anyway.

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

 

Sometimes you just have to cut your losses.

 

While it would have been worse this is nearly as close to getting nothing back as you can get...

 

Hopefully this is a conditional pick and escalates if he plays well

Gettleman definitely gave the Giants a discount, I bet he didn't even see if he could get more for him from another team. Schefter would have reported that Beason was on the trade block, but this was a direct trade from Gettle to Reese. Bullshit.

Here, he would only be of value as a backup MLB for about 12 games-then we get nothing for him.  It is not a good thing to keep a former star on the bench for the remainder of the year--it is awkward at best, toxic at worst.

 

The Giants got a deal, but we unloaded more and were not hurt by trading Beason.  Beason cost us a game or two when on the field.  To us, getting a draft pick for a player not contributing in the final year of a deal coming off an achilles injury is good business.

 

You have to look forward and understand that Gettlemen is a businessman who is not going to reward past performance.  The best teams know how and when to cut ties.

Beason would have been an FA after this year, we would have gotten the same compensation or better, with compensatory picks

No GM in his right mind would have given us a higher pick for what we saw on the field through the first three games (not to mention the two full seasons before that).

 

Way too many people here still confuse what Beason used to be with what he is now.
