Default Panthers franchise Peppers and sign Gross to 6 year deal...

With one signing, Carolina retained offensive tackle Jordan Gross and kept control of defensive end Julius Peppers.

Carolina and Gross reached agreement Thursday on a record six-year contract that will pay out $30.5 million in the first three years of the deal, a league source said.

The $30.5 million over the deal’s first three years is highest ever for an offensive lineman.

Now Gross is tied to Carolina and the Panthers now can designate Peppers as their franchise player, a move that will allow them to seek a trade. But Gross was the first piece of the puzzle.

After progress was made this week, the Panthers and Gross finalized the deal Thursday. Carolina took the top offensive tackle off the free-agent market and saved its franchise tag, all at the same time.

Well, that didn’t take long. Moments after completing a deal for offensive tackle Jordan Gross, the Carolina Panthers designated Julius Peppers as their franchise player, a league source confirmed Thursday. Peppers’ franchise number is $16.683 million, but it is hardly the money that Peppers wants. He wants his freedom, the ability to leave Carolina and go play in a city that would be desirable to him.

I thought Jake Long's deal is 5 year $57.5mil??? That would be the biggest.

Anyways, I am glad its over and the "sign Jordan Gross" threads can stop. I think Max Starks and Vernon Carey are looking at $5-$6million dollar a year deals coming up next.

There was no chance that the Steelers were going after Gross anyway.

So to speak from where I come from... " You my friend just hit the nail right on the head! "

Gross is a great player and to keep great, YOUNG Players, sometimes you have to overpay a little, but by the time his contract runs out now he will be underpaid by NFL standards. I think they made a mistake franchising Peppers myself. He is Not Happy In Charlotte, NC and he has said that over and over again lately.
