To Tag or Not to Tag...

that is the question. After reading Steve's latest article, and with today being the first opportunity to designate a franchise player, who out there thinks Pep will get the tag beore the 25th, or be allowed to walk without compensation? Since I started this thread, I'll hold my own thoughts until we get some other feedback on here.

Re: To Tag or Not to Tag...

As one of the top brass amongst the NFL owners and leadership circle MR. R is kind of b/t a rock and a hard place in dealing with 90...Big Cat by nature of his position must rep the best interests of the league ownership at large and at the same time...do right for his own club...

conventional thinking would be to tag 90 than look to trade him...but correct me if I am wrong but I think 90 has to sign the f-tag contract in order for a trade to go forth and even at that he has the right of first refusal on a trade...by tagging 90 he and his agent could do the same thing they did last yr...nothing...do not sign the tag until it is to late to work a resoneable trade....thye could hold out again until the day before training camp (long vactaion no mini's no ota's) and in effect be rented again for another one yr and this time it would be for 20Mil...

So I think they will offer a contract...say 12 to 13m over 3-4 yrs...and if 90 declines...they may very well let him walk out the door...
just seems like 90 and his agent have a very good poker hand handed to them...and in poker it is all about the che$$e....

Addendum to first comment:

Instead of 12-13 mill....offer JP a long term deal worth 14,550mil (he is the better player and this would pay him $1000 more per game than J "the mullet" Allen)...if he turns down such an offer as a 30 yr old DE...send him out the door and make sure the door hits him right in the tail!!!! And than go out and win it all w/o JP...no one player can be nor is he bigger than the team...and teams win games not de's

I agree, man. Peppers might be a hot commodity as a free agent, but as someone a team will have to give up picks/players for, then still work out a contract with, he's just lukewarm. I think the idea is going to be to try and sign him at his value and if he balks at the deal - sayonara, Julius.

i agree to. if he wants to stay then fine hes welcome to but the team cant mortgage the farm the keep him there are more defensive ends in the world and everette brown looks like a bright spot. i just dont wanna get nothing period out of a #2 overall pick and let him just mosey out the door. the one thing to think is these 1 year deals hes forcing us into has more risk for him. a serious injury could stop the money train at any time. the lord does not like greed.

yep...the tag-trade-longterm...each of them has +'s & sum potentially large -'s....what to do??? sure will be interesting to learn of the rationale once it all shakes down...

I agree that fixing the clubs #2 and #3 WR position will go aways in helping to produce more 'productivity' in the teams passing game...but I for one am hopeful they do not bring in yet another aging vet...am not certain TH would be the remedy the clib needs to doctor up the WR'ing corp...but he for certain would give the Panthers the olds group of WR in the league...87-37...89-31...and TH-34...a group of experienced whylee vet's for certain....
