Peppers is no-show

ESPN - [Full Article]

Julius Peppers is no-show at Panthers minicamp. It would be understandable if Julius
Peppers' teammates were angry. First the four-time Pro Bowl defensive end announced
he had "maxed out" in Carolina and would never sign a long-term deal. Then he sought a
trade when the Panthers placed the franchise tag on him. The latest act of Peppers'
offseason of defiance came Friday when he was the only player missing from the start of
the Panthers' 3-day minicamp. Yet it was impossible to find anybody visibly upset or
concerned that the franchise's all-time sacks leader was in protest mode instead of
accepting a guaranteed deal that would pay him more than $1 million a game. "It's kind
of what I expected. He hasn't signed his tender yet," coach John Fox said. "I know he's
working out. He'll be in great shape."
