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.
