Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers said Tuesday that he no longer wants a long-term deal with Carolina, saying he's changed his stance on whether he wants to continue his career with the Panthers.
“Last year, at the time, that was the option that I wanted most,” Peppers told Charlotte radio station WFNZ. “Now it's not.”
While agent Carl Carey said last week he believes the Panthers aren't interested in retaining Peppers, Carolina's career sacks leader, team officials haven't announced their plans for the impending free agent.
“How can you say you want to be somewhere when you're not really sure if they want you there because they're not even talking to you?” Peppers said.

Boston College erased a 1-0 deficit with a flurry of three second-period goals on its way to a 4-3 win over Boston University in the 58th Beanpot championship game Monday night at TD Garden. Kevin Shattenkirk gave BU a 1-0 lead with his even-strength goal at 13:36 of the first. But BC responded with three in the second, sparked by Steven Whitney's power-play goal 61 seconds in. Carl Sneep and Chris Kreider added goals to put BC in command. BU's Colby Cohen scored on the power play with 2:46 remaining in the third to cut it to 4-3, but the Terriers failed to get the equalizer in a frenetic finish. BC won its 15th Beanpot title in school history and its second in three years. BU was denied its 30th Beanpot crown and lost in the title game for the first time since losing 2-1 to BC in overtime in 2004. For more, visit The BC Blog.
