The Pro Bowl means a $1.5 million bonus for Julius Peppers, which will tide him over until the next paycheck.

He says he has no idea who will be writing it.

"Anywhere is a potential landing spot," the Carolina Panthers' defensive end said following the final practice for the NFC all-stars Saturday. "I'm not going to say I want to play for any team or I prefer to play anywhere, because I really haven't thought about it. I haven't thought about playing for x, y or z."

Last year the Panthers gave Peppers the NFL's highest single-season salary of more than $1 million a game. The contract included a $1.5 million bonus for making the Pro Bowl.

The deal came after the Panthers placed the restrictive franchise tag on him, denying Peppers his wish to leave in free agency.

Carolina could restrict his movement by placing the franchise tag on him again, but that would come with a 20 percent raise, meaning a salary of more than $20 million.
