At least you making a football response. So I can respect that. I know, the financial part could have been detrimental. But if we put that aside I think it's a viable scenario because Beason did finish the season healthy with the Giants. I think this was more a financial decision for Hurney than it was Xs and Os. And soon enough Keuchly will cost too.
With the new salary cap, every player who outperforms their rookie deal is going to cost money, whether it's our team or with others. We would be overpaying Beason at the worst time possible for our franchise when we need to keep studs like Hardy, and right now we've got Luke on a team friendly rookie deal. In the future, we can extend Luke when we can financially get out of albatross contracts Deangelo, Stewart, and Godfrey.
I agree that MLB is not a "required" position to have a good team, however, Bobby Wagner for the Seahawks is no slouch.
