Through four weeks the New York Giants have given up more points per game (36.5) than any other team in the NFL. One way to fix that problem is to bring in defensive help and it looks like Tom Coughlin's trying to do that.

The Giants are trying to workout a trade with Carolina that would send Panther Pro Bowl linebacker Jon Beason to New York according to FoxSports.com. Beason is scheduled to take a physical on Friday morning and if he passes the trade will be complete.

In exchange for Beason the Giants would send a late-round draft pick to Carolina.

The Giants defense has struggled this season. Besides giving up more points pre game than any other team in the NFL the Giants have also had trouble stopping the run. New York's surrendering 122.5 yards per game on the ground a number that ranks 28th in the league.

In Beason the Giants would potentially get a seven-year veteran who's been to the Pro Bowl three times. However Beason's had trouble staying healthy: After only playing in one game in 2011 Beason only played in four games last season before undergoing season-ending microfracture surgery.
