Coming over from the Carolina Panthers in October, the linebacker brought veteran leadership to the Giants. He called plays and solidified the middle of New York's defense.

Giants' brass focused their offseason efforts on locking up the 29-year-old to solidify a depleted linebacking corps.

Beason started 11 games for the Giants in 2013 with 93 tackles and one interception. He is a solid run defender, but struggles in the passing game. 

Despite the deal, the Giants still will need to get younger in their aging linebacker group this offseason and through the 2014 NFL Draft.
