If I were a fan, I would be mad at Peppers for that reason alone. This puts the Panthers at a disadvantage unless they decide to give Peppers exactly what he wants and he resigns.

Otherwise- I doubt seriously if Peppers garner a high 2nd rd pick...maybe a team with a lower 2nd pick, but definitely not a 1st rounder. Many GMs will force Carolina's hand and make your GM make a move.

IMHO- Peppers was wrong for annoucing his displeasure with the Panthers. He should have kept it in-house and allowed the Panthers to swing a 1st rder for him since he said that he didn't want to leave the team in a bind; however, it seems like he did just the opposite with his latest announcement.

Yeah, I agree, that didn't help matters. But I still think we'll be able to get a good deal. The fact is, a lot of teams will jump at the chance to land Peppers, and they'll be bidding against each other. I still think we get minimum a first rounder out of this.

I don't dislike the Panthers, but I'm not their no#1 fan either. But that's beside the point- I was just looking at the situation from an objective view with no dog in the fight.

Oh I think we get good value for Pep. I can see Philly, Houston, Oakland, Denver, and St. Louis all throwing offers at Carolina for him.

That's exactly what I'm thinking! WTF did he say "I want to do what's best for myself AND The Panthers organization." If he wasn't going to...he's the only f*cking potential free agent thus far that I've heard say I want out. (and the last one I'd expect to.)

Normally atheletes just say I'll do what's best for me and my family...not the franchise also. SO I JUST KNEW we were going to get it done....boy did I lie to myself.

we get a 1st rounder for him. It's still going to be difficult for the team to sign gross and franchise Peppers to trade him.

I'm not saying that Peppers isn't a good player, but you (Panthers) are not going to get a 1st rounder for him. He's not a dominate player who consistently takes over a game like a Reed, Suggs, Haynesworth, J Allen, Abraham and so forth. Also, the teams that are probably able to work out the best deals ( Detroit, Oak, KC, Seattle) will need for Peppers to sign a long -term deal. Also, teams will look at his age. Unlike J Allen, Peppers will be 29 this year, Allen was only 24. Its a huge difference.

Hence, the last thing another team wants, whose willing to trade with the Panthers, is a disgruntle player. All of these things and more will be taken into consideration.

I beleive the Panthers can get value, but it won't be what you think and definitely not a 1st rounder. Sorry. The Panthers, or shall I say Peppers, tipped your hand and for that you have lost a lot of leverage.
