Beason's agent: 'We're working on it'

0727beason   SPARTANBURG – Just spoke with Michael Huyghue, the agent for first-round pick Jon Beason, who did not report to camp with the rest of the players this morning.
   Huyghue said contract talks with the team are continuing, but no deal is imminent. If Beason isn’t signed before tomorrow morning’s first practice, he’ll become the first rookie to hold out since Bruce Nelson in 2003.
   “It’s everybody’s goal to get him in there for the first practice,’’ Huyghue said. “We’re working on it and we’ll see what happens.’’

Beason needs to get his butt to camp and the Panthers need to get the deal done today. We need somebody to fill in for Dan Morgan after he gets his bell rung and has to sit out the rest of the season.

It won't be beason replacing morgan because his 4.77 lack of speed and size will limit him at this level, i don't care where he played college ball, please quit telling me about how fast he is because according to all his 40 times he's slow

No Todd, that 4.77 is off base, that kid has LEGIT speed, you'll see

There is a difference between "On field" speed and timed 40 speed.

I'm glad to here this and look forward to this season

Jon Beason ran that 40 while recovering from an injury. He would not be a first round pick if his speed was a serious issue. He is a very good linebacker (I've seen him play in many games). We need to quit beating around the bush and get him to camp in case fragile dan gets hurt again.

Beason, get to camp now. You don't want to be another Bruce Nelson.

I can't believe JT had nothing better to do than to write that novel! Anyways, www.charlottesportsblog.com has a very good article about training camp.

Beason, must be holding out for a big signing bonus, worried that he won't play well enough to earn it on the field!

JT is obviously sick. Those are the rants of a paranoid schizophrenic at the worst, or someone in acute mania at the best. Whoever is supervising this site needs to delete these---but hopefully he will seek appropriate psychiatric help. Please monitor any further rants.

JT sounds like a white guy trying to sound like a black guy and is not smart enough to be either. In other words, he's a cowgirls fan.

Your sad diatribe would scare even the most hopeless of paronoid crackheads!! Seek medical attention immediately before you hurt yourself.

Posted by: Jim | Jul 27, 2007 5:55:28 PM

Beason ran a 4.77 in nylons. He'll be above a 4.8, perhaps even 4.9 with pads. That's SLOWWWWW

Oh and by the way, JT is cuckoo.... Lol, Are you the delusional wife of that explayer the Panthers cut?

Posted by: Dave | Jul 27, 2007 6:39:27 PM

JT has posted before and is the former wife of a former Panther. She has a vendetta against the "Jerry Richardson NFL sect", whatever that is.

Oh, and by the way, JT, what do you think about Beason?

Posted by: Steve R | Jul 27, 2007 6:59:49 PM

He's bracketed by the already signed 24th and 26th picks, how "far apart" can they be?

Also, can't you guys just remove the looney comments by JT. They make no sense.

To JT:

Todd Sauerbrun are you drinking and using the computer again? What did your mama tell you?!

Posted by: Ben | Jul 27, 2007 8:15:15 PM

Chris, he was coming off a knee injury...what do you do in his position? Not run and be seen as scared, or try to run and be seen as a gamer regardless of how it turns out?

Posted by: Michael Procton | Jul 27, 2007 8:51:20 PM

I don't know who this guy is, but apparently he's holding out.

Thug NFL player holding out for money, gee, what a novel concept. Haven't heard that before. Greedy thugs.

Ho-hum. Who cares about the Panthers, anyway? Win your six games for the season, and get the hell out of the news already. If it's not a greedy player holding out for more money, it's a thug player threatening to kill someone.

Note to all conspiracy theorists:
Leave the grassy knoll and go to the library-the view is better.

I simply do not understand the hate and angst toward the Panthers by Charlotteans (or others for that matter).

I'll excuse JT...He is either 9 years old or simply psychotic. Nowhere in that entire rant did he/she come close to completing a coherent thought. I did find the greatest example(s) of run-on sentencing that I could have ever imagined though. Also, it is nice to see how many times one can say "by the way."

However, the rest of you haters...The Carolina Panthers are an extremely important component of this great city. There contributions have been numerous. For the most part, this is an organization that does it the right way.

If you don't like them, don't watch. Don't read. Save your rants for talking to the guy in the mirror.

Obviously Vick is using JT as his pseudonym since his cover as Ron Mexico has been blown.
Seriously Beason, get to camp, you were lucky to be a first round pick as it is, dont bring down the team by acting like an ass.

Posted by: Ben | Jul 28, 2007 10:55:47 AM

And by the way - Will - yes I see you are back at it again, why dont you show some balls and let us know what team you pull for instead of coming on here and posting a bunch of lame comments.
Probably another pissed off Falcons or Bucs fan who has run out of fingers and toes to practice counting on.

Posted by: Ben | Jul 28, 2007 11:00:53 AM

JT is in serious need of grammer lessons...along with a bottle of milk.
