It’s been a busy week for trades in the NFL and another trade appears on the verge of completion.
A league source tells PFT that Beason is traveling to New York on Friday with the deal hinging on Beason passing a physical with the Giants.
Beason started the first two games of the season for the Panthers before being replaced by former Giants’ linebacker Chase Blackburn for Carolina’s Week 3 matchup with the Giants. Beason hasn’t appeared to be fully healthy this season but the Giants are desperate for help on defense. The physical won’t be just a token part of the deal as Beason is coming off micro-fracture knee surgery last year.
The irony in the move is the Giants elected not to bring back Blackburn this offseason, who played his first eight seasons in New York. Now the Giants could be trading for the guy Blackburn beat out for a job.
