Peppers Keeps Tag
Charlotte, NC - The deadline for the Carolina Panthers to reach a long-term deal with franchise defensive end Julius Peppers has passed without an agreement.
Peppers will now play next season under a one-year deal worth at least $16.7 million.
The Panthers had until 4 p.m. Eastern time to sign the four-time Pro Bowl pick to a deal that would secure his long-term future in Carolina and free up salary-cap space this season.
