Jon Beason on SiriusXM Radio: The audio of New York Giants linebacker Jon Beason’s interview on SiriusXM Radio on Tuesday is available at SoundCloud.com. Some points made by Beason:

  • Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnulo’s system: “It’s the most complex system I’ve been in. This is my fifth defensive coordinator. It is the most complex because we will not sit back and be dictated to by anybody…Offenses create problems by formations, moving people around, shifts and motions…Every call we can make a change…It’s a great system. We’re going to be aggressive and we’re going to be ready for whatever an offense does.”
  • Linebacker J.T. Thomas: “I think he is an exceptional player. He is savvy…I think he loves to play football…He wants to work, he wants to learn.”
  • Linebacker Devon Kennard: “I can’t praise Kennard enough. He prepares better than any rookie I’ve ever seen…The thing I’ve noticed the most this offseason is I think he is a step or two faster, he’s quicker.”
  • Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul: “He’s working extremely hard. He’s getting the information. He will be ready to roll.”
