Sign him.

And while we're at it can we get Haynesworth as well.......

If we use a few draft picks in the process I'm happy with that.

Was it not Peppers who did virtually nothing in 2007. I know there was a top name like his back then that everybody was wondering where he went.
If so, now that he was in his final year he really has no choice but to show up unless he's not worried about getting paid. I would be worried with anyone where you follow the money and it tells the story.

i said the same thing about woodson when we signed him. people said the same thing during moss's time in oakland. Peppers says he wants out of Carolina. I have to assume his disappearing act had to do with his dissatisfaction with carolina. not saying he won't do that in his new home.

Carolina was terrible all the way around in 2007. While it's not ideal, I can see it being tough for a player to give 110% every down of every game when you don't even really have a starting quarterback and you know your team isn't going to the playoffs. It would be tough.

I give him a pass for 2007. He probably just really wants to win.

HE is not worth what he is going to get paid , nor is he worth the draft picks required to pick him up (WE WILL FRANCHISE HIM). I love Pepp and hope he stays, but it has always been frustrating to watch him, when you know, WHEN HE WANTS TO PLAY NO ONE CAN STOP HIM. But that is a VERY rare occurnce. TRUST ME, be careful what you wish for!!!


I get the feeling Carolina fans would be saying different things had Julius Peppers came out and said he wanted to stay in Carolina.

Peppers is a special talent. He was arguably the best defensive end prospect to enter the draft in this decade. It was either him or Mario Williams and I would take Julius Peppers on my team in a heartbeat. The question is whether or not he can work in the 3-4 and sometimes you have to take risks and this is a risk I think is worth taking.

The Packers have so much cap that if he's a bust then so be it. It's not the end of the world and GB isn't going to be in salary cap hell if one guy doesn't workout. People need to remember that Mike Sherman gave big contracts to quite a few players that were busts and that's why the Packers were having problems with their cap.

If he works out then all of a sudden you have Julius Peppers, Aaron Kampman, A.J. Hawk, and Nick Barnett all playing linebacker in the 3-4 defense. The more I think about it the more I think that could be the most intimidating line backing core to play in the NFL in quite along time.

And I agree with him, I hope we don't get Peppers.

TED THOMPSON, DON'T LISTEN TO ALL THE HATERS, LEAVE PEPPERS WHERE HE'S AT!!


"Don't listen to all the haters", what the hell is that all about young man?


What I meant was that the vast majority of the Ted Thompson haters want him to go and spend money on a big name...I don't want him to do that with Peppers.

I would rather wait a year and spend that money on Shawne Merriman when he is a free agent... I know he is coming off of ACL problems, but he is great and the Chargers aren't gonna be willing to pay him.

Merriman's ACL problem must not have been as bad as others. He tried to play with it in the first game, and then he decided to go on with the surgery.

Which is why I'm throwing it out there... I have also heard that the organization and Merriman arent happy with each other, so possibly we could get him in a trade. And with the ACL injury, get him a little cheaper.

Well if his contract is up after this year, then the ACL thing might be a non factor in a trade. That all depends on how he plays though.

He'd probably cost us about a 1st or 2nd round pick in the draft probably though...

When Reggie White came to Green Bay in 1993, he had (not including two years in the USFL) 794 tackles (570 solo, 224 assists); 124 sacks, 2 INTs, 0 passes defensed, and 4 fumble recoveries in 8 seasons.

That's an average of 99.25 tackles (71.25 solo, 28 assists); 15.5 sacks; 0.25 INTs, 0 passes defensed; and 0.5 fumble recoveries per season.

His lowest single-season totals for tackles (76) and sacks (11) while in Philadelphia were higher than Peppers has averaged his entire career.

For comparison purposes, if look at the 10-year period that includes his USFL seasons, his totals rise to 987 tackles (98.7/season); 147 sacks (14.7/season); and 6 fumble recoveries (0.6/season).

Truly a remarkable paragon of longevity and consistency.

Oh, man, how I wish to have seen Reggie play for the Pack. I'd love to meet him, had he not passed away way to early.

As for Peppers, I really don't know about him. I think it'll be a gamble, but he fits the mold of a Charles Woodson. If he turns out the same, we would have a very good defense.

Still makes you wonder where to put him though. He's to expensive to only play on several downs (Then again, I thought the same about KGB) and you don't want to get Cullen out of the game. That's why I'd prefer a big DT or Cullen moved to the middle from time to time.

I think the Packers may send the money on a young upstart LB like Michael Boley. Here is what walter football has to say about the Falcons lb...

Michael Boley, Falcons. Age: 27.
What happened!? A year ago, Michael Boley was one of the most promising young linebackers in the NFL, and was consequently listed as a 4-star player on this chart. In 2008, Boley was benched. I'm listing him this high because he's just too talented not to rebound.

He is a good cover lb that can bring a vicious rush. Here is his stats...
