Jon Beason was once an All-Pro before being struck by the injury bug in back-to-back seasons. Beason was put on IR in 2011 and 2012. He’s only played 5 games in the last two seasons.
Beason is entering his seventh season in the league, and is recovering from offseason knee and shoulder surgeries. He said himself that he is actually ahead of schedule. Beason participated in OTAs, but it was very limited participation.
Beason also plans to participate in the Panthers’ minicamp next week:
“I’m feeling pretty good. At this point I can’t be more happy with it.” “Training camp was the goal, but I’m feeling so good we’re going to work in a little bit in the minicamp.”
Beason will also have to adjust to life as a weakside linebacker. He has played the majority of his career at middle linebacker, but the Panthers plan to keep Luke Kuechly in that position.

Here's a look at the NFL Yards After Catch (YAC) leaderboard in 2012. YAC is a fun, buzz-worthy stat. But at the end of the day, it has a very low Correlation to Victory. The 7-9 Carolina Panthers led the NFL in YAC in 2012; the top four included two of the worst offenses in football.
A former first round draft pick, Greg Olson, is still only 28 years of age and just experienced a career season for the Carolina Panthers. Based on that description you would think he would be a hot commodity entering the 2013 fantasy football season, but that is far from the case.
After being unable to reach his potential in four seasons with the Chicago Bears, he has developed...
