Giants Extend Jon Beason to multi-year deal

The Giants stayed busy on the second day of free agency, this time keeping on of their most important pieces in place.

The Giants agreed to a contract extension with linebacker Jon Beason that will keep the linebacker in New York. While terms were not released as of 5:00 p.m. Beason's return is huge for the Giants. Acquired last September, Beason strengthened a Giants defense that got off to a hideous start in 2013.

The Giants gave up 110 points in the first three games of the year, before Beason came aboard. In the 11 games he played for Big Blue the Giants defense played markedly better. Beason became a leader on the team, recording 93 tackles for the club.

With Beason aboard, the Giants can target other needs like the secondary and wide receiver. Jacoby Jones, whom the Giants were interviewing decided to sign a contract with the Baltimore Ravens.
