LB Jon Beason recorded 12 tackles (11 solo) in Giants debut last week in Chicago.

Giants and Beason agree to deal

The Giants and Jon Beason have agreed on a new deal (Kinkhabwala, March 12).

The two sides were in “heated discussions” on Wednesday afternoon (Schefter, March 12).

The 29-year-old played in 12 games with the Giants in 2013.

Absolutely the best news Giant fans can hear right now. Beason is the key to everything the Giants have been doing on defense and losing him would mean starting over.

He’s not only a beast of a linebacker, he gets the defense lined up play-in and play-out. In less than a season, Beason became the face of the Giants’ defense, garnering respect from his teammates, coaches, fans and opponents in the process.

It’s no coincidence that the Giants stonewalled some of the NFL’s top rushing attacks last season after inserting Beason in the middle of their defense.

Good move – strike that - great move for the Giants today.

This is definitely great news! Beason is a good player - smart, tough and a class act. Looks like the Giants are really determined to get this thing turned around as quickly as possible. At least they are making moves EARLY and not waiting around. Thats a good sign. I don't fell nearly as bad about the Schofield move now since we are assured JB will be here as well. Beason will without a doubt be our leader on defense now that it looks like Tuck could be gone. Very happy about this...Now lets keep it going. I still want Big Bad Taylor Lewan in the draft if he's still there...
