A trade that would send linebacker Jon Beason from the Carolina Panthers to the New York Giants will go through if the three-time Pro Bowler passes a physical on Friday morning, according to multiple Internet reports.

The move initially was reported by Jay Glazer of Fox Sports on Twitter, citing a Panthers source. NFL Insider Ian Rapoport for the NFL Network and NFL.com also reported a source confirmed the trade.

Allegedly, Beason has lost his starting job to Chase Blackburn, a former Giant, and became expendable to the Panthers after a poor start this season.

The Panthers are expected to receive a late round draft pick if Beason passes his physical exam today.

Do you think Jon Beason will give the Giants the boost they need?
