The media seems to be running with the Panthers not signing Julius Peppers to a contract extension story. It is a load of crap. Do you the chances of him signing an extension: 0%. He is not worth 16 million a year and isn’t worth the 12 to 14 million over 5 years to sign him, that is if he even considered the offer. He has been throwing a temper tantrum about being on the panthers ever since they franchised him. Why would the Panthers want to sign a guy to a long term contract when he held them hostage in a trade? The dude also is so hot and cold on the field and that is not something you invest 10 million dollars in. Do you know the real reason why he didn’t get traded, it is because the Panthers couldn’t shop him until he signed the franchise tender. He didn’t sign the tender until a couple of weeks ago.
