Patriots | Looking to acquire Peppers?
Mon, 16 Mar 2009 13:24:05 -0700
Vic Carucci, of NFL.com, reports the New England Patriots are talking with the Carolina Panthers about acquiring DE Julius Peppers from the Panthers for the 34th overall pick, according to league sources. The two teams hope to complete the trade before the 2009 NFL Draft.




Man if this is true, and Colbert does NOT Immediately offer up our pick at 32 for Peppers, then Colbert should be fired at once. Peppers would be IDEAL for us at DE. He has already stated that he wants to be on a 3-4 defense.. And I don't give a crap WHAT kind of new deal we have to give him, he is well worth it. He is definitely better than ANYTHING we could ever hope to get at # 32 anyways. And if that's all Carolina wants, then definitely try to trump the Pats. cause if they get him, with Brady fully healthy, you might as well forget any and all chances at us even coming close to repeating.



DO IT COLBERT!!!

Once they traded cassel their intentions were obvious.

Thomas(who's actually been kind of a dissapointment) and peppers on the outside. Not bad. kinda covers the that fact their secondary, and defense as a whole, is probably has an average of 30 years +

I'm still skeptical about peppers as a 3-4 linebacker though. imo he shouldn't get a big contract at that position....yet

Peppers would be IDEAL for us at DE

WRONG!!!!

If you do not know why then....man, I'm not even gonna waste my time

1st.. that would be CRAZY if he went to the pats..

2nd.. Peppers has said he would only want to play on certain teams in the nfl.. and only 1 of them were in the AFC.. and it looks like it was the pats..

3rd.. the man would eat up a big cap hit this yr and we don't have the room

I bet all you guys favorite actress is Alicia Silverstone...Cause you're ALL " CLUELESS "!


Peppers is 300 + Lbs, how the hell do you think he cannot play DE ? As for Peppers saying he would only play for one AFC team...BS! That report was denied by his agent in the Charlotte Observer the very next day! Three, his Base salary for this year can easily fit under our current Cap space. but, to say extend him, we could easily trade Larry Foote, which we SHOULD do anyways, that's about 3 million off the books right there. As well as Kirckie ( SP )..he's on his last year at over 4 1/2 million dollars..( Why Colbert ever agreed to pay that stiff that kind of jack is beyond me )...release those two, and wham, we have over 7 million, more than enough to structure a new long term deal.


How the hell do you think the Pats are going to extend him ? The same exact way. But the Steelers and their management refuse to do such deals.


And New England IF this deal goes down will be hoisting another Sb trophy! Count on it. I won't root for it, but then again, I'm a realist, not a " Blind " fan like you all.

Wow, how can you call yourself a Steelers fan and not know what position he would play in the 3-4?

In the 3-4, he would be an OLB. I'll take the 2008 NFL Defensive Player of The Year in James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley...two guys who have already established themselves at the position...than Peppers who might be a bust at OLB and isn't an ideal DE in the 3-4.

Not to mention, offensive line is the bigger problem, and we can fix a lot of that by getting quality offensive linemen with our first two draft picks.

Peppers is around 280 and is not even near as strong as kirshke, who does a lot for this defense btw.

Watch peppers play, he is a pass rusher and a decent run stopper in a 4-3, where he has giant kemoeatu to do the run stopping

Just stop it, you're only embarassing yourself

You're just gonna piss people off if you say stupid stuff on this forum. Especially stuff that isn't even arguable, like his weight. He weighs 283 lbs, not 300+

3-4 DEs are like 4-3 DTs, they have to be big power players. He's lanky already for a 4-3 NFL D-end, because he's 6'7'' and 280 lbs. He wants to play 3-4 Outside LInebacker- 3-4 DE's are power players, he's a flexibility, agility player.

He could fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker but we got plenty of those.

I agree, a Total NE Move. I almost thought Dallas would go for him however. Bring him in to stiffen up their Defense, although Dallas is running a 3-4 these days aren't they?

Chargers could have made a move for him as well, he would help their defense.

The #1 Defense in the league doesn't need to go sign a Peppers to get better, other teams that struggled giving up points and letting up leads does.

they simply have the ammo to make a deal like this happen. peppers will be better than anyone they could draft. belichick will finally have someone he can let loose (someone his defense hasnt had since lawrence taylor).

If they pull off trading a 34-year old LB and their backup QB for Julius Peppers I'm gonna take a hostage. Because it's in the second round, that #34 overall pick is more valuable to trade than it is to use. Peppers is an impact defender but I'm not certain he's a great fit at LB for NE. And getting a do-able contract for both sides is light years from being settled, especially with Wilfork a FA at season's end. My guess is this won't get done.

Sure, high profile guys want to go to a 3-4 defense and be a DE all the time. Who wouldn't want to go from someone trying to put up huge sack numbers each year in a 4-3, then request a trade to a 3-4 team so he can be a DE and have the sole responsibility of eating blockers so other guys can get the sacks and glory. Happens all the time.

Let's see how good Peppers is at covering backs and TE's out of the backfield. Of course, he is an upgrade for the Pats', but he won't help them cover Hines, Santo, Wayne, or even TO.

The Pats' secondary still sucks ...that is all.

Looks like just another internet rumor.


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers denied a report Monday they've discussed trading four-time Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers to the New England Patriots.

The reason: They aren't allowed to have any trade talks involving Peppers until he signs his one-year tender worth $16.7 million — or until his agent brokers a deal with another team and comes to Carolina for approval.

tony hipchest
03-16-2009, 10:51 PM
...and dan snyder and albert haynesworth's agent were discussing golf and stocks when they were having steak dinner at the combine. :rolleyes:

not signing the tag is the only way peppers has to control his own destiny. he will not sign it until a deal is worked out to send him to a team of his chosing (patriots). otherwise he will threaten to hold out or report to the panthers the week before the season starts and collect his $16 mil.

tony hipchest
03-16-2009, 11:08 PM

El-Gonzo Jackson
03-16-2009, 11:45 PM
I think Peppers is a gamble to play OLB in a 3-4. No track record showing he can drop and cover at all.

Might be a boom or bust decision for whoever lets him play OLB and pays him all that $$ to do it. Al Davis, Dan Snyder.........who is most likely to spend that kind of cash frivolously?

Edman
03-17-2009, 12:04 AM
Peppers is a pure Pass rusher out of a 4-3 Defense. A position he's played for years. The Patriots use a 3-4. So where would he fit? Too small to be a 3-4 End. Hasn't shown the coverage skills required of a 3-4 OLB.

Like Dino said, how many players signed on the Patriots bandwagon after 2004 for a championship and came away empty handed to watch their rivals (Steelers Twice , Colts Once) win? Junior Seau is one of them. Chad Brown is another one.

Panthers: No Peppers deal, or talks

Carolina Panthers general manager Marty Hurney denied an Internet report Monday that the Carolina Panthers were working on a trade to send defensive end Julius Peppers to the New England Patriots for a second-round pick, 34th overall.

Furthermore, Hurney said he was unaware of any activity involving Peppers and other teams.

An NFL.com story indicated Carolina and New England were hoping to complete the trade sometime between next week's owners' meetings in Dana Point, Calif., and the draft in late April.

By the rules of the (collective bargaining agreement), we cannot and have not had any conversations with other teams Hurney said in a statement. Under the non-exclusive franchise tag, Julius and his agent, Carl Carey, are within their rights to talk to other teams about a potential contract. However, at this point, we are not aware of any such conversations.

Carey did not return telephone messages.

Peppers' contract expired following the 2008 season, after which he and Carey said he wanted to move to another team. They said he was especially interested in playing in a 3-4 defense, which the Patriots employ.

Peppers and Carey were hoping the Panthers would not use their franchise tag on Peppers and instead allow him to become an unrestricted free agent. But the team tagged him just hours before the deadline last month after signing All-Pro left tackle Jordan Gross to a multi-year contract.

The Panthers have consistently said they want to keep Peppers, whose contract tender as a franchise free agent is counting $16.683million against the team's 2009 salary cap.

The team has very little salary-cap room, but seems willing to keep Peppers at that price. He counted nearly $14million against the Panthers' cap last season, when he had a career-high 141/2 sacks and was selected to his fourth Pro Bowl.

The CBA allows Peppers to talk to other teams, who could sign him to an offer sheet. The Panthers would have the right to match the offer sheet, or reject it and receive two first-round picks in return.

I think it will happen anyways. But please, let it all happen, I would LOVE for the patriots to get J. Peppers.

It isnt going to make that much of a difference. Seriously, Julius Peppers had only a half sack more than J. Harrison had in half the time.

Julius Peppers gave up two years ago. 2.5 sacks is pathetic. seriously. He might feel a little rejuvenated in NE. But you CANNOT BUY A SUPERBOWL.

smite you God shall Bill B. Seriously, What arrogance, what audacity. I really think, that he thinks, that the Patriots aren't going to miss a beat.

They get Adalius Thomas, Randy Moss, and now Julius Peppers.

Who does Bill Bell think he is?

I really think he is going absolutely nuts. I think he is totally consumed by his own "legacy". The man is nuts. He wants to win a superbowl so bad. Theres something to be said about team chemistry and how in-house players feel when you bring in a guy from the outside (esp. like moss and peppers) who get huge contracts thrown at them. Its eventually going to bite them in the ass.

His team hasn't won a superbowl in four years. His QB is not getting any younger and he sees the light dwindling for a time to win a SB with brady. He is going senile in his mind with the CRAZY notion that the steelers are starting to get mentioned as the dynasty of the 2000's, and his patriots still have a foul smell fresh off of spygate.

good luck, suckers

Football 101. ONE player does not a championship team make. :doh:

Sure Peppers is one helluva DE and is still fairly young, but the Pats* need almost a total overhaul of that aging D and signing him isn't going to automatically assure them (or anyone else for that matter who is throwing their hat in the ring to acquire him) of anything. He is ONE cog in the wheel.

I much prefer the Steelers method of home-growing their own players and developing and utilizing their talent as best suits their needs. Close to 40 years of a winning tradition and seven Lombardis later, it sure has proven to be an effective method, don't ya think?

P.S. Have you conveniently forgotten that the Pats* still have basically NO running game?

"That trade is not gonna happen," Schefter says. "I don’t believe for a second there’s any truth to it." Schefter is the premier NFL reporter, so it's always hard to doubt him. Schefter cites the Jared Allen-like contract Peppers might require and calls free agent Jason Taylor a more realistic target for the Patriots."

Julius Peppers is tremendously talented, he can use his basketball skills to boot.

However-when the going gets really tough, he has no heart. To boot-his leadership skills are very poor.

So the deal didn't fall through for NE? Beh...as a 3-4 OLB, he wasn't going to do them any good. The Pats need younger LBs more than anything else. At least they shored up their DBs.
