Jon Beason: Announces retirement
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Beason announced Wednesday that he will retire, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

With word coming down earlier Wednesday that the Giants intended to release the veteran linebacker, Beason instead opted to announce his retirement. Beason had his career hampered by foot and knee injuries and as a 31-year-old linebacker, he hadn't played a full season since 2010 and only played double-digit games once in his final five seasons. He finishes his career with 526 total tackles, three forced fumbles, and 10 interceptions.

Giants' Jon Beason: Released by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Beason was released by the Giants on Wednesday, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

The Giants parted ways with a pair of veterans Wednesday, releasing Beason and guard Geoff Schwartz. According to Graziano, the moves were cap-influenced, noting that Beason's release saves the team $6 million in cap space. The 31-year-old linebacker appeared in just nine games over the past two years and finished the 2015 campaign on IR due to an ankle injury.

Giants' Jon Beason: Lands on IR Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jon Beason (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Since joining the New York Giants in 2013, the oft-injured linebacker has played in just 19 games with the team, and he's played in 10+ games just twice in his seven year career. Considering Beason is entering the final year of his contract, the Giants could save nearly $5 million in cap space next year if they cut the 30-year-old linebacker by the beginning of March, so his presence on the roster in 2016 is far from a guarantee.

Giants' Jon Beason: Ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jon Beason (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay.

After failing to practice all week, Beason will miss a second straight game. In his absence, Jasper Brinkley will split snaps with Uani Unga at middle linebacker.

Giants' Jon Beason: Does not practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jon Beason (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

Beason missed last week's contest against the Saints due to an ankle injury and after missing practice in consecutive days, the 30-year-old linebacker could be in danger of missing this week's contest against the Buccaneers as well. That decision likely won't arrive until Friday, so IDP owners looking to play Beason should check back in then.
