He must have threatened sitting out or retiring because unlike Peppers he has no say in who he is traded to. And I agree that you can't blame him for not wanting to go to Detriot.


For the reasons you listed ALL players can poo poo a trade. They just fail to show up.

The NFL’s trading deadline begins Friday, though talks already have been in high gear.

The Panthers tried trading cornerback Ken Lucas to the Detroit Lions. Problem is, once the two sides were engaged in discussions, Lucas let it be known that he did not and would not play in Detroit. Thus, trade talks were abandoned even though some in the league thought the trade might go through.

The talks are an indication of what Carolina has in mind for Lucas, who is scheduled to make $5.6 million in base salary this season. If Carolina cuts Lucas this week, it will free up $2.375 million against its salary cap. For a team desperately searching for space, Lucas provides some of it.

Hey!! Are you the Canadian "Cat" that was fired for plagiarizing ESPN and Lombardi? Sounds like it. Back it up right or don't post.

Extremely circular, unverifiable story.


Canadian Cat, to my knowledge, has always been a good member of this site.

People make mistakes, you know. Cut the guy some slack.

Indeed, it was proven to be a true rumor. As opposed to an untrue rumor.
Apologies, original post edited. The whole thing just looked bogus on its surface when I read the original post, like someone was trying to start another rumor instead of actually having some information. I was wrong. Sorry.

Hey, it happens.

Lord knows there are enough rumors flying around as is. Can't blame anyone for tiring of every other Lucas or Peppers rumor. :D

Hey business is business.

At the end of the day, this isn't about character. Its about productivity. And if we were going to get a sweat deal trading him to Detroit, let it be. Us fans get wrapped up sometimes. Its understandable though.

I too would like to see him traded. Any pick would be decent.

But a trade to Detroit? Yikes... yea, if I were him, I'd object to it as well.

I really dont see how Lucas and stop a trade. He has no choice. Thats the same desperate move peppers tried. Prob another team looking at him that he likes more.
