As for Peppers playing poorly in 2009. Why would he do that? He knows that if he slacks off then every negative thing said about him would be true. Plus if no one will pony up 2 1st round draft picks after his year in 2008, why would they pony up that much with less production?
He knows that to keep his hopes of leaving intact, he has to have another career year this year as well. He saw how Gross increased his worth after being franchised in 2008 and knows he can do it as well.
Will he go? Very possible. But it won't likely be to the team of his choice or for as much money as he will make in Carolina. So unless he settles for less than what he wants, he will likely be here next year disgruntled or not.

Still waiting to see how the Peppers saga plays out.
