Veteran linebacker Jon Beason is going to save himself 3 percent on his next deal.
But he’s costing himself three days in the process.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Giants unrestricted free agent has emailed all 32 teams telling them he’d be representing himself in free agency.
But as a result, teams other than the Giants can’t talk to him until Tuesday, taking him out of the three-day legal tampering window.
For a player who has been through a few negotiations (and a few agents), Beason should be able to well cover his own needs. Other players, including Titans safety Bernard Pollard recently, have gone without an agent to do a deal.
If Beason lands where he wants at a reasonable rate, the savings might be worth it. But a lot of relationships are going to be struck this weekend, even if they’re not consummated, while Beason waits at the altar.
