Stapleton notes that Beal entered a pretrial diversion program to avoid a conviction on his record. He has been placed on two years probation until June 3, 2022.
He was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, improperly handling a firearm in a vehicle and marijuana possession.
Ralph Vacchiano mentions that Beal is now facing possible suspension under the NFL’s personal conduct policy. However, it remains to be seen whether Beal makes the team’s 53-man roster.
Beal, 24, was selected in the third round of the 2018 supplemental draft. He signed a four-year, $4.08 million contract that included a $1,048,940 signing bonus. Unfortunately, Beal spent his rookie season on injured reserve with a shoulder injury.
He was on injured reserve in 2019 before being designated to return in November. Beal elected to opt-out of the 2020 season eight days before the indictment.
In 2019, Beal appeared in six games for the Giants and recorded 26 tackles, no interceptions, and a pass defense.
