NFL Free Agency Rumors: Jon Beason wants to test market


After the Carolina Panthers cut ties with linebacker Jon Beason, he seemingly found a home with the New York Giants and has admitted he would like to stick with the Giants.

The Giants would like to keep Beason, but he’d like to see what his value is before making any decisions, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

 By all accounts, he seems to be the priority among the 26, but a source close to Beason said that since they’ve been unable to come to an agreement he’d like to at least test the market and see what his value is. Beason’s situation is a little more complicated because he’s representing himself and other teams can’t officially talk to him until Tuesday at 4 p.m., so it’s possible he has absolutely no idea what his market is right now. A lot of people still think he’ll be back with the Giants at some point, but this one might not have the quick resolution some originally thought it would.

Beason was a first round pick of the Panthers in 2007. He joined the Giants last season and had 93 tackles and an interception in 12 games.
