The Carolina Panthers continue to spend money like proverbial drunken sailors.
After rounding up a slew of free agents, the Panthers turned their attention to linebacker Jon Beason. Per a league source, Beason agreed to terms on a five-year, $50 million extension. The deal includes $25 million guaranteed.
Beason joins defensive end Charles Johnson, running back DeAngelo Williams, linebackers Thomas Davis and James Anderson, kicker Olindo Mare, and probably five or six guys we’re forgetting as the recipients of new money in Carolina.
Next up? Center Ryan Kalil, the team’s franchise player.
They may not be able to compete in the ultra-competitive NFC South, but it’ll be fun to watch what they do.
