Carolina Panthers linebacker Jon Beason said Thursday he shouldn't have told a radio audience last week that he planned to talk to defensive end Julius Peppers about playing harder.
"After what happened, I realized I was wrong," Beason said during his weekly appearance on WFNZ (610 AM). "There are certain things you shouldn't say in public and certain things that should remain in-house. That's where I made my mistake."
Beason added that he decided not to talk to Peppers after receiving some negative reaction to his comments.
