LB Beason Lines Up On the Outside as Camp Starts

LB Jon Beason was on the outside LB spot when camp opened for the Panthers, which Dan Connor was on the inside:

When Panthers training camp opened this week, Jon Beason was not in the middle of the defense — Dan Connor was. Beason has moved to the weakside linebacker spot to take the place of Thomas Davis, who tore his ACL for the second time in six months during the offseason. It seems pretty obvious Jon Beason would prefer to remain at middle linebacker, but said he’ll move to the weakside if it makes the team better. Beason swatted down a couple of passes during early drills, perhaps a telling sign that he’s capable of being a good outside linebacker. “Whatever”s going to help the team win,” Beason said. “Thomas was obviously a big part of our defense, and if moving me is going to make us better, that”s what I want to do.
