Four time pro-bowler and defensive rookie of the year in 2002 Julius Peppers has asked the Carolina Panthers for his release. Meanwhile the Panthers management has other plans for him. Chances of him being outright released are very slim, Peppers is a superstar defensive end and the biggest name on the Carolina defense. He is coming off his best season as a pro recording 14.5 Sacks and 5 Forced Fumbles. It is said that the Panthers management plan to slap the franchise tag on him, so before this is all over things can get very ugly over there on the East coast. Another possibility is that they can trade him, which we could see happen. A player like Peppers should net the Panthers a first rounder if they find any suitors, however a 2nd Round pick or a package of picks is more likely.
