According to Dan Graziano of ESPNNewYork.com, the Giants and linebacker Jon Beason have talked about getting a long-term deal done.
Linebacker Jon Beason is a player they’d like to bring back and with whom they’ve discussed a long-term deal. The franchise-tag salary for linebackers is likely to be more than $10 million, though, so they’d have to feel confident about their chances of signing Beason long-term (they’d have until July 15 to do so) if they were to risk paying him that much on a one-year deal.
Beason has to be a priority for the Giants as long as they are confident his knee will hold up. Hew was a difference-maker for their defense in 2013.
