According to a tweet from Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, Panthers linebacker Jon Beason has agreed to restructure his contract.
#Panthers LB Jon Beason renegotiated his contract today. Was supposed to make $5.25 million this year— Ben Volin (@BenVolin) July 25, 2013
We don't have details on the new contract at this time, but it is good news that Beason was willing to re-work his deal to help the organization. It's also unknown what the team plans to do with any saved money from this restructure, but with rumors of possible deals with Travelle Wharton and Quintin Mikell floating around, Beason's re-worked contract could be the first of a series of moves by GM Dave Gettleman to help complete the roster for the start of the 2013 season.
Once we have more information on the details of the restructure we will be sure to provide them, so be sure to stay tuned to CSR for more news on this developing story.
