Report: Giants to Acquire LB Jon Beason From Panthers



According to a report courtesy ESPN via Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, the New York Giants, have added some much needed help to their linebacking core.

A trade that would send linebacker Jon Beason from the Carolina Panthers to the New York Giants will go through if the three-time Pro Bowler passes a physical on Friday morning, according to multiple Internet reports.

The move initially was reported by Jay Glazer of Fox Sports on Twitter, citing a Panthers source. NFL Insider Ian Rapoport for the NFL Network and also reported a source confirmed the trade.

Beason, if healthy, would give the Giants linebacking group an incredible boost. Apparently, he lost his starting job to former Giant Chase Blackburn after having a poor start to the season, and therefore became expendable.

The Panthers are expected to receive a late-round draft pick if Beason passes his physical on Friday.
