Speaking on radio station WEEI Thursday, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said there had been no conversations regarding a trade for Panthers franchise player Julius Peppers. He also said that if Peppers wanted to be dealt, he should sign his tender.
That would put the Panthers in the mix, since they can't do anything with him until he signs. At this point, all talks would have to go through his agent.
If Peppers did sign the tender, that would make the upcoming owner's meetings interesting, since it would gather the key players together.
We'll see who moves next. Stay tuned.
