Beason was scheduled to receive a $1 million roster bonus on Tuesday. Due to the renegotiation of his contract, his base salary has been reduced from $5.825 million to $3.7 million.
The 30-year-old linebacker has played four games or less in three of the past four years due to injuries.
His 2014 season was ended due to foot and toe injuries after only four games.
Beason, who was acquired in a 2013 trade with the Panthers, is scheduled to be paid $5.9 million and count $7.4 million against the salary cap in 2015. The middle linebacker played in only four games last season due to toe and foot ailments.
"We've been back and forth trying to come to terms and they're doing the best they can to try and be fair under the situation," Beason said during a radio interview Wednesday. "As a so-called agent, I'm trying to do the best I can to make sure that I get the opportunity to earn some of that money back."
Beason only appeared in four games and ends his season with 11 combined tackles.
Beason returned to action Week 7 but aggravated the injury in the loss at Dallas.
