Beason closing in on 100 percent

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

Carolina linebacker Jon Beason is close to 100-percent healthy, agent Drew Rosenhaus wrote on his Twitter account.

Beason had offseason shoulder surgery and may have been slowed by the injury late last year. Rosenhaus said he worked out with his client recently and Beason looked fine. Not sure if that means Beason will be fully ready for June workouts, but he definitely should be ready for training camp.
