Jon Beason Loving New Home In New York

Jon_Beason_2013Jon Beason has been a Giant for about five minutes but he’s already decided he wants to stay forever.

After being shipped out of Carolina in trade less than three weeks ago, Beason has found a new home in a hurry.

“I don’t plan on going anywhere, ever. Ever,” Beason said, via Dave Hutchinson of the Newark Star Ledger . “I was talking to [special assistant for player development/assistant coach] Jessie Armstead. I was, ‘Man, when I’m done [playing] I want a job like you.

“Whatever it is you do, you’re still wearing the uniform. Thus far, the city has been real cool. It’s a great group of guys. They’ve welcomed me like I was a draft pick here. I’m happy. I want to be contributing.”

If he can stay well and the Giants can keep him playing in an alley (after the Panthers tried with mixed results playing him outside), it could be a good long-term fit.
