    Peppers Pro Bowl nod pushes up franchise number | ProFootballTalk.com

    From PFT...

    His Pro Bowl selection was worth $1.5 million. Add that to his $16.683 million base salary as the team's franchise player and his pay for the 2009 season is $18.183 million.

    According to the Rock Hill Herald, the bonus means it would be even more expensive to retain Peppers as the team's franchise player in 2010. A 20% increase on his 2009 pay would now be a whopping $21.8196 million.


    No Way the Panthers pay him 21.8 mil next year, that would be 20% of their entire cap for one guy. He sure would look good played OLB for the Pats next year.....

    I really thought the BB was after him last year. He basically came out and told Peppers what he had to do for the Pats to make a play for him shrewdly I might add. In the beginning I thought Peppers made a huge mistake by staying in Carolina but looking at what he will get this year is mind boggling. With no cap next year he would probably be the only guy I would give huge money to besides Vince. Peppers and a passing rushing end or lb in the draft would take the defense to another level.

    This would have been a lot more feasible if the Pats hadn't made the playoffs.

    If they don't reach the AFCCG, it's at least possible. If they do, the only way they can add Peppers is if they let Wilfork walk, and that doesn't seem like much of a bargain to me.

    If they make it to the second round it becomes improbable. The final 8 teams in the playoffs are retsricted to signing FA's of equal value that they have lost.

    I think we're going to need 3 caps to get everyone's binkies signed.
