Free-agent LB Jon Beason is a player the New York Giants want to bring back, and the team has discussed a long-term deal with him. The franchise-tag salary for linebackers is likely to be $10 million, so they'd have to be confident about their chances of signing Beason long-term if they were to risk paying him that much on a one-year deal.
Huddle Up: Beason, who was second on the squad with 93 total tackles this past season, is in the prime of his career having just turned 29 in January so he's definitely a candidate to get a longer-term deal.

The New York Giants have agreed to deal a late-round draft pick to the Carolina Panthers for LB Jon Beason. He must pass a physical first.
Huddle Up: The Giants could use some linebacking help; adding the former first-round pick is certainly a step in that direction, though injuries have sapped Beason's talent to the point that he'd lost his starting job each of the past two seasons in Carolina.

Carolina Panthers LB Jon Beason (knee) is playing through pain after microfracture surgery last year. He had a rough game in Week 2, as he struggled in pass coverage and missed a few tackles.
Huddle Up: Beason still is tied for third on the team with 11 total tackles through 2 games but after missing 27 games over the past 2 seasons and undergoing microfracture surgery, there's certainly no guarantee the 3-time Pro Bowler will ever approach his previous level of play.

Carolina Panthers LB Jon Beason (knee, shoulder) is not expected to participate in June minicamps.
Huddle Up: It's been quite a rough go for Beason over the past 2 seasons as he's been limited to 5 games total after recording at least 119 total tackles in each of his first 4 pro seasons. The Panthers aren't going to rush him in hopes of having him available for training camp.
