That's the rumor of the night on Twitter and several beat writers from the Panthers are confirming he's get traded but don't know to who or for what.
they stayed put they would have had their choice of Khaseem Greene, Sean Porter or Gerald hodges, all of whom made their respective teams. And they gave up an extra pick to get him. Now on top of it, they waste another pick to get yet another injury prone player who due to injury can't live up to his potential. Really stupid planning on JRs part in this case.
The roster appears set to be almost completely turned over with only a few guys appearing to be certain to be Giants in 2014. The league is designed to allow teams to rebuild quickly.
We have some known quantities in Eli, Cruz, Prince, Beatty, Randle, maybe Pugh, and maybe a couple others. The big question is how are other recent draftees going to develop and will they get the opportunity this year?
Also, what are we going to do about Nicks and JPP? Right now the smart move seems to be to let each walk. I wonder if financially it's possible to trade JPP.
Give me a Mathews or Lewan as our first pick, slide Beatty to RT and Pugh to RG and all of a sudden, the OL looks a lot better.
I am more worried about the future of our DL than our OL.
looks much better. his best pro position is LT or C imo
Somewhere he has zero experience playing in a game at.
Rivers, Curry, all LB'ers that were top ten picks but can't play football.
They're still young....
was his versatility.
But I really hope that doesn't mean Pugh plays a new position every 10 games or so. I want him to find his best position ASAP and stay there.
like Curry, Connors, et. al?
I don't like the deal due to injury concerns, but at least Beason was a highly effective player in this league at one point. Talent isn't an issue here, at all.
Same could be applied to an undrafted player, etc.
Your conclusion may be right, but I disagree with that line of reasoning.
hurt in 2011 he hasn't been the same player. CAR was wise to dump him off for anything they could get. If he was the pre-injury Beason he would never have seen the trade market.
but is no longer healthy enough to play at that level. Kind of similar to LaVar Arrington, in that respect.
One difference is that when healthy, he is a proven commodity. For his current team to give up on him for a low pick, it certainly suggests that he's not near his old self.
Doesn't mean it can't work out for us...but I'm not gonna hold my breath waiting for him to make an impact.
Rivers, Curry, Bullock have all provided nothing.
I don't expect anything. We gave up a 6-7 rounder and we'll probably get one back back plus a mid rounder in compensatory.
It's basically a free trial.
"The trade is simply trying to get something out of nothing. It was clear Beason couldn't contribute in 2013 the way the team had hoped and his release was around the corner. It's a sad day, but the move makes a lot of sense."
At least his contract is up after this season. THe trade makes no sense from the Giants standpoint. Salary Cap Ramifications of Jon Beason Trade

calls for similar attributes as Left Tackle.
Yes - those points are all reasonable - I just disagreed with your 1:33 reasoning and knew you had better reasons that you were holding back from us. :)
I think it's a low-risk, moderate reward move. Hard to have strong feelings against it from my perspective.
the most combined ACL surgeries in NFL history
This is not going to be a good season for the Giants so whatever you do you don't trade away draft picks for someone who best day a well behind him. Someone fire the guy who mite have made this trade. Maybe we all get lucky and Benson fail his physical. Giants dump a healthy Blackburn who in turn take over for Benson due to his injuries and then the Giants make a trade for Benson. Now you know why this is a bad season for the Giants. Stupid Moves.
Steve Smith, Terrel Thomas, william Beatty, Linval Joseph, Rueben Randle
Clint Sintim, Marvin Austin
I will take that 50-50 any time
What hurts is the 3rd round. ALford hurt and done after 1 year and C Jones never playing
To me a 7th is basically an UDFA. Easy to get that back by trading back a few spots elsewhere. With UDFAs like Chase, Cruz Ballard, they can fill out the roster.
realize less then 5% of 7th rounders ever make an NFL roster. Quit your crying about draft picks when you have no clue what your crying about.
Burns me though that he can't get on the field ahead of Blackburn.
it's not just the draft pick. This shows that Reese thinks he built a good enough roster to be a playoff team. That absolutely terrifies me.
..a significant upgrade, trading any pick at 0-4 doesn't make sense. The team needs to get better at that position and I hope Reese knows something more than the obvious.
Thats great you feel that way but if the front office had this attitude it would be disgraceful and they wouldn't have won those last two super bowls. If its only a 7th rounder lets come down. 7th rounders are great and all but for every Ahmad Bradshaw theres about 30 other guys taken in the round that will have no impact on the teams that draft them.
Hasn't been good in 3 years and was beat out by the exceedingly mediocre chase Blackburn. Oh and the giants are very unlikely to play meaningful games this year so future assets are relatively more valuable to them than present ones.
Those are facts. I'm not sure how they can be disagreed with.
Versatile enough to play a different position on the O-line every year but after 8 or 9 years, he won't be able to play any one position to the satisfaction of BBI.
The odds of getting an asset in rounds 6-7 are low. They have always been low. They always will be low. They are low for every team.
a pick in rounds six or seven is not an asset. it's a lottery scratch off. Most times you lose, sometimes you luck into a $15 winner.
similar to the one that brought us Mike Barrow. If I recall people thought he was done after an injury too?!
If you are optimistic and hold out hope for success this season, you won't find any fault with trading a #7 pick for a player now. People in this camp generally don't pay attention to the percentages, they push all their emotional chips into this pile.
If you aren't optimistic on this season, your view shifts to 2014 and preserving assets for the offseason options and draft. You recognize the percentages are very low this season, you're more pragmatic and mentally prepared to cut bait and build towards the future.
Neither is wrong, but which is more likely?
which is sorely needed in the middle of this defense.
A lot of you will have a change of heart once he gets on the filed. I am a fan of this move.
mainly because it's an injured player (we have enough of those don't we??) and he's a free agent next year. Most likely, this is a rental.
But.....the Giants realize they are quite substandard at LB and need help just to surrive this season. That's the reason for the move.
Sometimes you have to patch a hole so the ship doesn't completely sink.
I believe most of the hand wringing was over it possibly being a 5th
will probably do the trade down/accumulation thing in the upcoming draft so the loss of this pick is basically meaningless to me.
I have no issue with the trade at all. For every Ahmad Bradshaw, there are a dozen guys who don't even make the practice squad.
Beason might be damaged goods, but nothing wrong with taking a flier on a 28 year old 100+ tackle a year guy (before injuries) as the Giants have no one on the roster who fits that description. To everyone feeling negative about the trade, don't get wrapped up in what the Giants are giving up. More concerning is that JR feels the need to make this move at all. I suspect this means, Williams, Rivers, and Herzlich are likely not part of the future plan. This may not surprise many, but if Beason is bring brought in because Williams (in particular) and Rivers cannot get it done, then our LBs are even worse than our worst fears. Williams was supposed to at least be a nickel and dime package LB, but he is always hurt and has been invisible this year. Rivers has just never lived up to his measureables.
Anyone think Beason is being brought in to play MLB in the base alignment?
I just finished my first 3 rounds of next year smock using WWW.first-pick.com
Pick 1.1. I traded down 1 spot to steels and acquired the 1.2 plus 2.2 of Pitt
Pick 1.2 I traded down 4 spots to 6th and acquired more picks. I now am set with (2) 1st end picks (3) 2nd runs and (2) 3rds
1a Anthony Barr LB UCLA
1b Tony Richardson OT Tenn
2a: anthonynSteen OG Alabama
2b: Aaron Colbin CB Oklahoma
2c: Craig Lostin SS LSU
3a: Adrian Hubbard LB UCLA
3b: WR Allen Robertson Penn St
Have more fun doing this than watching us lose
you really haven't done much for the ship.
1. The physical state of Beason
2. Even in said state He instantly becomes our best LB
Mike Garafolo @MikeGarafolo
Done deal: Jon Beason is now a Giant, per source.
He'll be playing MIKE here, no doubt.
Now I'd settle for the Black Unicorn of LBs.
