No, the O-line needs investing in.

When you see him on TV, he looks smaller than Smith or Keisel. I still don't think he'd work out as a DE in the 3-4 anyhow. A 3-4 DE's job is more of a take up the blockers so the linebackers can make the play, no way Peppers would go for that type of job.
In our system, you are absolutely right.

I wonder if he would work better in another 3-4 system that uses their Line to rush more than just gap control.

It's not that Peppers is too small to be a 3-4 end, it's that his play style doesn't fit. Keisel and Smith's jobs are to occupy blockers and clog running lanes, and when they pass rush it's less finesse and more of a straight bull-rush.

Peppers is an excellent pass rusher, but he isn't the kind of DE that fits in our system. Dumb teams like the Redskins take good defensive players (Jason Taylor) and shove them into an incompatible system with poor results. LeBeau knows what he's doing--I doubt we sign any major free agents, as if Peppers is leaving I'm sure Carolina will hang on to Jordan Gross.

Pepper has the athletic ability to play OLB in a 3-4. But the Steelers don't need him. We have Harrison and Woodley so were fine at OLB. I know Peppers is around 280 but I still think the could play OLB in a 3-4. Calvin Pace weighs around 270 range and plays OLB in the Jets 3-4 scheme. I think Pepper is more athletic and a better player then Pace.
