Report: Peppers rejected big Panthers' offer

According to a report by ESPN, the Carolina Panthers offered defensive end Julius Peppers a contract worth about $14 million per season in a recent last-ditch effort to re-sign him.

Peppers rejected the offer and the Panthers announced that they would not use their franchise player tag on him by last month's league-wide deadline, according to the report.

Peppers becomes an unrestricted free agent Friday.

He is widely regarded as the top player available on the unrestricted free agent market.

I wonder why he is so unhappy there? I always thought it was a money issue, but I guess not.
