<!-- TOKEN_1241212620281_TOKEN -->Today the Carolina Panthers started a three day mini-camp. Surprise, surprise a no show for disgruntled defensive end Julius Peppers. Expect him to continue his absence, he still has not signed his one year 16.7 million dollar tender. Since he has not signed his contract he can’t be finned for missing the mandatory practice. I thought for sure that he would have been gone by the draft. It looks like if we were to trade him it would be for picks next year, which could be a good thing seeing how we don’t have a first round pick next year either.
