Carolina Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers indicated on Tuesday he has no interest in playing for the Panthers anymore.
Peppers gave a long, rambling interview on a Charlotte radio station, indicating he's not happy with Carolina despite being one of the highest paid players in the NFL.
According to the NFLPA, Peppers' 2009 salary of $16.6 million ranks third on the "highest paid" list behind only Peyton Manning and Donovan McNabb.
It may surprise you to learn Tom Brady only makes $14 million, fifth on that list. It's a wonder that guy can get by (Number four is Matt Cassel).
The core of Peppers unhappiness is the direction the Panthers are going and his role on the defense. Fair enough, but his options are limited, and now his agent is taking the Joshua Cribbs route of going public with contract negotiations and saying they're "done" with their current teams.
With that in mind, it's now officially time to speculate on where Peppers may land.
The list of credible candidates is small, but here they are in no particular order.
