More Pepper's speculation from SI

found this on SI.

Given a franchise tag by the Panthers, defensive end Julius Peppers has expressed a desire to leave Carolina, ideally for a team that runs a 3-4 defense. A four-time Pro Bowl selection, Peppers has been linked to the Dolphins and Cardinals in possible trade scenarios.

So has anybody heard any rumors about Miami or Arizona. What could they offer us that would make sense?

Arizona has a few possible players we could pick up. Miami I cant think of one I would want.

Arizona could offer Boldin and a pick or two. Plus Peppers spends much of the offseason in Arizona and they are going to a 3-4.

I doubt the Tuna would be interested in Peppers. He hates guys with poor work ethics. Peppers is the one that said he wants to go to Miami.

I would love to send Peppers to Arizona for Boldin and a pick or two. Having a guy like that on your team can only help you.

If Parcells was still coaching I bet he'd love to have Peppers. He'd see him as an opportunity to show off his motivational skills.

Pretty much. With his ago, he thinks he can coach anyone into a star.

(except Terrell Owens)

Miami has the 25th pick. They also haven't resigned Andre Goodman. If we cut Lucas, Miami could package the pick and Goodman. But there's a lot of depth in the FA CB market, so I'm not sure we'd bite on that. Plus I'm beginning to think Lucas is going to be around for another year.

Although there has been lots of speculation about Miami as a possible destination for Peppers, I don't see Parcells giving up some high picks for Peppers when he's still trying to build a team. They singed Porter but shipped away some other veterans to acquire picks in recent years (Chambers, Taylor, McCown, etc.).

Arizona - that would hurt. Plus, they pick 31st. We should get better value than that.

The only scenarios I would trade Peppers to Arizona under are the following:

2009 and 2010 first round picks

2009 1st, 2nd, and 3rd

OR

I don't even want to talk about having Anquan Boldin. With Jake at the QB and Fox's conservative offense we will not score a lot of points anyways. We need to build defense...

Not that I want Anquan Boldin, but I just want to point out that we did score an awful lot of points last year regardless of the QB or Fox ;)

Fox and Davidson's "conservative" offense ranked 7th in the league in points scored and 5th in the league in yards per play. I think having Boldin here would help to improve upon those already impressive numbers.

Also, WFNZ is reporting a rumor of a trade with Philly sending Lito Shepard and a first for Peppers.

You know it's not like we were dropping 30 points a game on people, don't be stupid, our offense is no longer conservative.
