Beason Inks a Five-Year Deal Worth $50 Million

Panthers linebacker Jon Beason has agreed to terms on a five-year, $50 million contract extension, Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports.

According to Florio, the deal includes $25 million in guarantees.

A first-round pick out of Miami in 2007, Beason has 540 tackles, four quarterback sacks, and eight interceptions in 64 games and has been named to the Pro Bowl after each of the last three seasons. Beason also earned All-Pro honors after the 2008 and 2009 seasons.

Beason was scheduled to earn $1.538 million in the final year of his contract, but will now be manning the middle of Ron Rivera’s defense for the foreseeable future.
