Tonight via twitter, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports is reporting that the Giants are exploring a trade that would send Jon Beason the starting linebacker of the Carolina Panthers to New York.
Beason was benched for Week 3, which was ironically Carolina’s blowout win over the Giants. Returning from microfracture surgery, Beason was not effective in a part-time role in Weeks 1-2.
The Giants are struggling right now at Mike linebacker and Beason would be a huge upgrade, but the question is what is the price. If it is more than a mid round pick, I would not do it. Beason is getting older and is injured all the time. Maybe a change of scenery would be good for him.
