Jon Beason: From the Football Field to the Kitchen


Here’s a different twist, and one that I wasn’t aware of until today, actually.

Apparently, for the past three years, Rachael Ray has had guests who are NFL players on her show right around the Super Bowl.

This year, in it’s third season, the show named “Super Bowl Recipe III” will air on Thursday Feb. 4, at 10 a.m. EST.

Along with Carolina Panthers linebacker Jon Beason, who will be preparing pork chops parmigiana, are Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne, and New York Giants tackle Kareem McKenzie.

Singer Nick Lachey will be a guest judge.

Beason, in his third year with the Panthers, led the team in tackles this season, played in the Pro Bowl for a second year, and was named Second Team All-Pro.

He finished the 2009 season with 142 total tackles–tied for second in the NFL–had three sacks, three interceptions, and a forced fumble. He was also named All-Pro for the second straight year.
