Jon Beason restructures

Jul 24 2013 08:42 PM SuperJTheGreat Carolina Panthers
Panthers WLB Jon Beason restructured his contract Wednesday. Beason, 28, was scheduled to earn a $5.25 million base salary this season. Considered a potential cap casualty early in the offseason process, the injury-prone linebacker kept his spot simply because there's too much money left on his six-year, $51.338 million deal. Beason, MLB Luke Kuechly, and SLB Thomas Davis comprise one of the best-looking linebacker groups in the league on paper, but Beason has appeared in just five games over the last two seasons.

Is he trolling us or what?

@josephperson: Also, while you were sleeping, confirmed #Panthers LB Jon Beason has restructured contract. Terms not yet disclosed.

Told you he wouldn't find out till today.

No grown man should ever say vacay seriously.

What is he, 40?  No grown man should ever spike his hair with his mom's gel either.  I saw him on an NFL Network remote where they were inteviewing him during a segment, and I was embarrassed.   He looked like Vanilla Ice after an all-nighter.

The term "injury prone" gets thrown around a little too much these days.

Great news nonetheless.

Agreed.  They come in bunches, like everything else.  

 

Beason is a bit small for a MLB and they tend to take a beating.  The thing to watch for is chronic shoulder injuries

MJ was barely the 5th highest paid players on his team when playing for the Bulls. He did that because he wanted to win championships. Mission accomplished.

I mean it also helped that he was making millions from endorsements on the side. 

That's exactly what I took from this as well.

Joe Person is by far the worst in beat writing history.

Joe Person is actually a good, servicable writer but he is an A-hole. That hurts you in a career where connections for rumors and facts are critical to getting breaking news..

If you were Jon Beason or Gettleman you aren't gonna run to the reporter that gets on your last nerve...lol

I feel like this was a move to pave the way for a Hardy extension more than anything.  Or I am just hoping and waiting for this to happen, just as I am waiting for the Kraken to come make another thread.

I hope that we didn't push money out.

 

I would rather cut if hes not healthy and take the lumps now rather than 2 years from now.

Will always be a Beason fan, but hard to believe this will be his "Breakout" Year when he doesn't even know when he'll practice.  I'm not going to totally count him out and hope he can return to pre-injury form, but from a purely objective standpoint it appears his breakout years were his first 2 in the league.

 

Hoping for the best #52!

Why do I even bother having an opinion? All of you people seem to know everything there is to know. 

So no details on this yet?

Because you're just the epitome of manhood. I will like whatever I want to like.
