Not a chance that Beason's number gets retired.  He did not do enough to come close to warranting that honor.

 

Most teams retire numbers as fan favorites and as a way for the organization to show their appreciation for the players and his relationship with the fans.

 

Does anyone here even know if the Panther organization has an established criteria for retiring numbers?

 

Right now? John Kasay and Steve Smith are likely the only two players, past or current, who are likely to receive this honor.

I don't really post on here, but damn. Beason is one of the best leaders this team has ever had and I'm seriously going to miss him. I'm so happy that he gets to go somewhere to play the mike, but his presence will undoubtedly be missed. Bye Jon Beason, you're one of my favorite players in the game.

Thanks for giving it your all and being a class act, that's all a fan can ask for. I wish him nothing but the best in NY (except when you play us!).

bleh a late round draft pick for a real good MLB.

Sorry Jon.. your worth way more than that.

 

The worth of anything is determined from what another will pay for it.

 

Beason is nowhere near the elite MLB that he was a few seasons ago.  He has had 3 surgeries in 17 months and has struggled to regain even starting quality form.  Blackburn was a major upgrade to him based on the way he had performed.

 

I loved Beason as a player, but the injuries were just too much to overcome.

Draft pick is undisclosed according to panthers.com

"It was very tough (to trade Beason) because of what he has meant to this organization, to this team, to the defense and to the linebackers," Rivera said. "He texted me this morning and said, ‘I want to make sure everybody knows I truly appreciate everything, and I love the guys in the locker room.'"

One of my favorite Panthers

 

That pick against Kurt Warner on that bright  Sunday afternoon (2010?) sealing a very tough victory for us on a day when Kurt was truly on fire is the way I will remember you my friend.  What a play.

That is the thing.  Who couldn't like Beason?  He worked for everything he got and was the heart of the defense for years.  He was a pro-bowler and play maker.  My feelings have been one of sadness that he hasn't recovered and might never be anything but a shadow of his former self. It has been painful to watch him play and realize he has lost more than a few steps. I hope I am wrong and he comes back 100%.  But both the achilles and micro-fracture injuries were potentially career ending. It reminds me of Stephen Davis, he came back from micro-fracture but he never played as well as he did before. If work ethic can make the difference then he has a good shot to come back.  That was never in doubt. At least New York gives him the best shot to start.

The equipment manager Jacki Miles has some numbers he won't give out. They aren't retired but he feels strongly about the numbers and won't let them go for just anybody. The two I can think of right now are 51 and 4.

Jon Beason will always be a legend to me. Gave everything he had, even when he had nothing to give.
