Panthers | Peppers looking to leave team
Sat, 17 Jan 2009 03:01:45 -0800

ESPN.com reports Carolina Panthers DL Julius Peppers is looking to leave the team as a free agent this offseason. "The front office has been informed of my desire to explore opportunities with other NFL teams following the expiration of my contract next month," Peppers said in a statement released by his agent Carl Carey. "At this point in my NFL career, I am seeking new challenges that will allow me to grow, develop and reach my personal potential on the football field. I strongly feel that making a move at this time is in my best interest. I appreciate the entire Panthers organization and am thankful for the seven seasons I've spent with the team." The Panthers would have to pay Peppers nearly $17 million if they were to place the franchise tag on him for the 2009 season.

This is interesting....

I know Peppers would be a long shot, but it may be an option.

There is no doubt that the Giants want to upgrade their passrush and Peppers would likely be very interested in coming here.The Giants have no problems with paying DEs good money.

It would give us a rotation of Osi, Peppers and Tuck with Kiwanuka likely moving back to SLB.

Something like this would also give us back a lethal 4 aces package
