Giants should just release Sam Beal now
New York Giants’ cornerback Sam Beal has pleaded guilty to two gun-related charges after being arrested just outside of Cleveland back in June of 2020.
Art Stapleton of the Bergen Record has the details:
Court records obtained by NorthJersey.com and USA TODAY Network indicate Beal entered into a pretrial diversion program, which puts conditions on him to meet in exchange to avoid a conviction on his record. He has been placed on two years of probation until June 3, 2022 and was ordered to pay court costs and court-appointed attorney fees.
The Giants used a third round pick on Beal in the 2018 NFL supplemental draft and he’s only played in six games so far in his career. Now he did opt out of last season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But he will have to have an amazing training camp and preseason if he wants to stick around with the Giants.
The Giants did release a statement and said the following, “We have been aware of the situation. We have no further comment at this time.”
Honestly, it would make sense for the Giants to release Beal now because even if they keep him, the NFL will likely suspend him anyway and it’s just not worth it to keep him around at this point.
