"Peppers to Pats Laughable" says Fox

Fox: Peppers-to-Patriots 'almost laughable'

"Julius Peppers being traded to the Patriots did not happen at the NFL owners' meetings. New England doesn't have the cap room to absorb Peppers's $16.68 million franchise tag salary, and yesterday Carolina Panthers coach John Fox called the reported trade that would have sent Peppers to the Patriots for a second-round pick "almost laughable." Fox disputed the perception that the Panthers would have to dump Peppers from a cap standpoint."

This article is from the NFL Truth and Rumors section of CNNSI.COM.  Here's my take, and I think me and Foxy see eye to eye.  What makes it laughable is the Peppers for a 2nd rounder portion.  Peppers for a 2nd rounder is idiotic.  Since he's not under contract, if the Pats sign him, they have to give up 2 1st rounders.  We can't trade him because technically he's not a Panther.  If he was a Panther, he would not be traded for less than a 1st rd pick and one additional 1st day pick, either this year or next.  That's my theory.  So if you read between the lines, Fox isn't saying a trade to NE is laughable, but a trade involving an unsigned but franchised All-Pro for a 2nd rounder is laughable.  I see what Fox is up to, and I'm calling his bluff.
