Starting LT Penn to demand a trade before the draft?

NFL.com reports that starting left tackle Donald Penn may demand a trade from the Bucs before the start of next Thursday’s draft:

Donald Penn, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ starting left tackle, has curbed a weight issue that dogged him last season, but he remains dissatisfied with the lack of a new contract. Penn, whose first- and third-round tender essentially prevents him from receiving an offer sheet by Thursday’s deadline, hasn’t been able to land a long-term deal with the Bucs. Should that not change quickly, there’s a strong possibility Penn could demand a trade before next week’s NFL draft and inform the Bucs he will not sign his restricted free agent tender until the preseason, a league source said Wednesday.
