Beason made his regularly scheduled paid appearance on WFNZ's "PrimeTime with the Packman," although he's turned down interview requests from local reporters the last four days when other players were available (Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday).
He said "I realized I was wrong," for saying on the radio he wanted to meet with Peppers to talk about his effort, as he said last week he intended to do. He also said he did not, in fact meet with Peppers.
