Gantt says Peppers is probably on the way out

Recommended Posts

he was the DPOTY the season before....how do you figure?

35 years old. Players tend to nosedive in performance the older they get. I know it sounds crazy but it's true. I think Pep may have another 4 or 5 good years in him.

The reason why I DONT WANT to let go of Pep is that I'm just scared if we do, he just go off some other place and just beast

I also look back and not like the idea a lot of moving Pep to RE. He had a few sacks and multiple pressure from LE. Moving him around got him some sacks too. Just further proves he would EXCEL in a 3-4. But we got Johnson now, somebody who I think can provide pressure to help Pep

If we trade him, a first rounder isn't enough. It's be if we just franchise him and dont have to go through that

Oh, I GUARANTEE after he leaves us he will be a beast wherever he plays next. I really think he hasn't wanted to be here for the last 2 or 3 years. Going somewhere he wants to be, he'll be happy, have a new contract, and it will show through his play. I think his best years are yet to come... Just with another team.

The situation I'm suggesting is we franchise him regardless because he doesn't want to sign a contract with us, and thus we have the leverage. He'll probably say he won't play for us under the tag and demands to be traded. Then, we trade him to a team outside of the conference and get the best deal possible and he has no choice but to go play for them. I'm sure it will be handled respectfully, but that's how I see it playing out.

The only reason I could see for keeping him is to extend the glory of my recently bought Peppers fathead.

We would probably only get like a 1st and 3rd, or a 1st and 4th and 6th for him.

Maybe even only like a 2nd,3rd, and 4th.

The franchise tag will keep him from going to Dallas. We would determine where he would go. I'm just saying, I think that's where he prefers to go. BTW, Dallas wouldn't have two first rounders to give up, thanks to Roy Williams, and we wouldn't trade him within the conference. But, I had a friend who was a Cowboys fan a couple years back that said when he became a FA that Dallas was going to get him. It won't happen.

From what Fox knows, it sounds even more likely he's gone (from the Observer):

Q. Julius Peppers is very noncommittal about coming back, do you believe he will?

"Julius, who I've got utmost respect for, is a private person. He's a different person than other people. It's a process. He's been fairly private with the process. I'll leave it at that. I've got no complaints with Julius, no questions about his commitment. It's the business part of it. He did a great job of focusing on football this year and not letting anybody from outside make it a distraction. I've got a great deal of respect for that."

Q. What kind of priority is it to keep him here?

"I'd say it's important. Most people would see that as being important, just like keeping Jordan (Gross) here and all our core players here. I can't predict the future. I'd be at the racetrack if I could."

Q. If you can't re-sign him, would you franchise him?

"You're asking me questions a day after the season's over. They're good questions, but again, it's a process. Right now, I'm look forward to having next week off."

Q. Do you feel like you know where he stands?

"I've had conversations with him. I tend to keep that private. Those things are between me and Julius."

Q. How important is this situation, knowing the decisions you need to make between now and March 1?

"It's still early. So early I can't believe it. We both know how we feel about him and we know how he feels about us. It's the business part of it and I hope it works out."

Q. If Julius prefers not to be here, would you work with him or put the franchise tag on him?

"Again, that's hypothetical and I don't do good with hypotheticals. We'll march forward. Things change."
