Because Peppers Made Known That He Wants Out..U Will Not Get 1st or 2nd picks

yea, no worry. we will get at the very least a 1st, but i think a first and a 3rd as well. there will be a bidding war, and we will reap the benefits.

very worst case scenario, we keep him with the tag one more season and he will be forced to have a good season, like this past season, in order to keep his stock up for a future big payday. I'm not a big fan ofthis, but it will get us another oppertunity to win the superbowl if we cant get a deal worked out

What you guys fail to realize is that while Peppers can not say where he's to be traded, NO ONE can make him sign a long term deal. That's the problem with all your different teams (e.g. Det, Oak, KC, and the like) and scenarios. Contrary to popular belief- Peppers has a lot of leverage in how this is played out.

Yes, the Panthers can tag him and send him whereever they like, but getting him to sign a long term is the ISSUE. No team or GM worth his/her salt will give up a 1st rder for a player thats unwilling to sign a long term extension or want to be in that city.

they won't have any problem finding a willing trade partner in fact they may not have to search at all, peppers will. if they hit him with the non-exclusive tag and he wants out it is then up to his big ears and that agent of his to find a place. panthers can sit back and watch. they won't have to find anyone. peppers will.

if he has to play here another year he can show how much of a bum he is and not show up which would look REAL attractive for other teams with an interest or he can choose to play and do what your big malcontent DT did these past two years.

We have just as much leverage as Peppers does here. He WILL get the franchise tag the half second it's available to slap around.

Either we get acceptable compensation for a player of his caliber or we tag him and he's in ANOTHER "prove your worth" contract year. If he doesn't want to play, or he disappears, he hurts his future worth.

We'll get, at minimum, a first and a late round pick. It's very likely that we'll get slightly less than Allen's deal, but a good deal nonetheless.
