Julius Peppers Announces Retirement

Quote

Anybody who knows me knows I’m not big on words and I don’t like to put myself out there, so I’m just gonna get right to it.

Seventeen years is a long time to be playing this game. It’s two careers for a lot of people. I’m thankful that I have been able to play so long and still be healthy. I’m not all banged up and beaten down. I still feel good.

But as much as I would love to play forever, I know that I can’t. It’s gotta end at some point.

That point is now.

Today, I’m retiring.

Man did he have an interesting career here. He was my favorite Panther until he signed with the Bears which led to me, being the immature brat I was back then, throwing his jersey away in the trash. But I'm glad he had a chance to come back and make things right and did pretty well for an old man. First ballot Hall of Famer.

Tied with Smitty for Panthers GOAT.

Thanks for the memories Pep. I never stopped loving you, even when you left for other opportunities.

I think he's #1. He's going to be a first ballot Hall of Famer and he spent most of his career here. No one else can touch that, other than hopefully Luke one day.

I disagree. I think Smitty is first ballot HOF and WR GOAT IDGAF. But, this thread is for Pep, so I won't digress.

What a legend. Played in a final four and super bowl. Aside from Jordan, maybe the best athlete the state of NC has ever produced. Go Heels!
