Panthers source says they are working a trade that would send pro bowl LB Jon Beason to the Giants, who sorely need defensive help

The Giants are in desperate need of help in their linebacker core and Beason is expendable in the eye of the front office. Beason is an unrestricted free agent following the season, so it does make sense for the Panthers to cash in on him now considering it is unlikely he returns to the team in 2014. If the Giants do work out a trade before the deadline, Beason will have an immediate impact on the team's defense, and may solidify himself as a solid IDP-option since he will stay in a base 4-3 defense.
