Jon Beason Signing: Middle linebacker returns to New York Giants

Jon Beason - Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Giants made re-signing Jon Beason a priority this offseason, and that has reportedly now happened.

Jon Beason will return to the New York Giants, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network.

Beason, the middle linebacker who made a tremendous impact with the Giants after being acquired via trade from the Carolina Panthers during the 2013 season, has been a priority for the Giants to re-sign all along. Representing himself in free agency he apparently wanted to test the market to see what other offers might be available.

Beason reportedly drew some interest from the Denver Broncos, but in the end decided to remain in New York.

The 29-year-old Beason revitalized his career after last season's trade, making 93 tackles in 12 games for New York. He had played in only seven games for Carolina from 2011 thru the early portion of 2013 as injuries kept him sidelined. Beason, with his long history of injuries, might be only a short-term solution at middle linebacker for the Giants, but he was a player they could not afford to lose heading into 2014.

No word on the terms of the contract.
