  • What happens to Julius Peppers?

    Any news on if and when he is getting signed or traded?

    If so, who makes the move. There is an article (purely speculation) that the 49ers would make sense in a trade for Peppers. What is the take from Panther fans and other fans of the NFL?

    I don't think anyone is willing to give up the first and a third it would take to bring him in due to his current franchise status.

    And even if with Panthers are willing to sign him and trade him for less than that, he'll surely want a long term deal in the range of Albert Haynesworth....and amount of money that many teams either don't have or aren't willing to pony up this time of year.

    I bet he plays another year in Carolina, they franchise him again next year, and then trade him for anything they can get early next year.

      Like BeerBaron said, the demands are too high and no one is desperate enough to pay that. I expect a holdout, he loses some money after being fined then proceeds to play for Carolina. I can see maybe New England giving up maybe 2 second rounders since they have that luxury.

        if i was peppers... i would just stay in carolina...
        that is the team that made him the 2nd pick overall and where he has made a name for himself... he also was a standout at unc...
        its not like the panthers are a bad team... i guess that terrible loss to zona is still bitter in his mouth but you know, the panthers have just the same a chance as the patriots... but i guess with less money

        but heck, its all about the money nowadays


        Go Ravens!

            Doesn't Peppers have to waive his No Trade Clause? KC doesn't have a shot.

                Well, the 49ers have two 1st rounders next year.. One of them happens to be the Panthers 1st.

                  Haha how ironic would it be if the Niners traded the Panthers their own first back for Peppers...that would be legendary

                      It'd still be pretty cool if they did.

                        He hasn't signed his franchise tender, correct? It was my understanding that until he signs that he can't be traded. The team can't even talk to other teams about potential trades. Is that correct?

                        I have a friend who is a Panthers fan and he was ranting about how stupid and selfish he's being.

                          that's pretty much it. He refuses to sign the tender, but the Panthers have to save the cap space for that tender. They aren't allowed to trade him, all they get to do is withdraw the tender (making him a FA) or wait for him to do so. No trade talk until that tender has a signature.

                            I'm seeing quite a few misconceptions here......

                            For 1, until he signs the tender, Peppers is technically a free agent. It's just that if anyone signs him, they'd have to give up a first and a third. So he's free to negotiate contract terms with teams right now. If he finds a good deal, then the team can talk to the Panthers about trading for him (and trying to give up less than a 1st and a 3rd for all that money Peppers will want.) If they reach a deal, Peppers can sign his tender, be traded and then sign his new deal.

                            Or at least thats how I believe it all works. Something along those lines.

                            Now that the Niners have been brought up.....that would be intersting if they skipped the trade route, signed Peppers to a blockbuster deal and gave the Panthers own first rounder back plus a 3rd. That'd be a sick move for the 49ers....The Panthers would either have to pay a whole lot of money to match the deal and lock up Peppers, or let him walk for basically pennies.

                            But Peppers will likely want Hayneworth kind of money and like I mentioned above, I doubt any team gives that to him now.
