    he's 29 and he wants to play Outer Linebacker. I'm not giong to give a huge contract to a defensive end that wants to be an outer linebacker even though he's never played there.........no thanks
    agreed. :go:

    I dont think Julius is really worth it, especially for a defense that is looking to be rebuilt with good youth. And heck , we arent even 100%certain we will run a 3-4 base defense.

    Agreed. And I'm sure most coaches that are interested in him will bring up the same point if it comes to negotiations... but obviously in his mind he must think he can make close to the same salary. Do you really think that Peppers is the kind of guy who would give up several million dollars just to see if he could do well in a different position? I dont think he would accept a dramatic decrease in pay and I dont think the top tier teams are going to be willing to pay what he is worth now. And I do feel that Carolina has every bit as much a chance at the championship as the teams you listed and would not be surprised to see them make multiple runs at it over the next couple years. The only reason we have not seen them there more is the fact that they play in quite possibly the most competitive division.

    Oh and just a bonus piece... the Panthers have the highest postseason win percentage in the league at .667

And I dont think the "contender" status is really part of it because Carolina is a contender. They were the number 2 seed and had a legit shot at the Super Bowl. Dellhome just picked the wrong time to have a bad day.

    He would be a great addition to our D-line! But the only problem is that I think I've read somewhere that says he wants to play in a 3-4 instead.

    Isnt he gonna knock his asking price down by requesting to play LB in a 3-4, he would get big money as a DE but he will be asking a team to pay him a huge contract, and experiment with him by making him an outside LB ? I bet a team would also have to promise to play him at LB no matter what, i mean what if he is a bust as a LB? will he agree to go back to end? I think he just wants out of Carolina so he can go to a top contender and win a ring, i think the whole formation thing may be a smoke screen.

    i wouldnt be supprised if he ended up somewhere where nobody expects him to go
    Absolutely not. We have too many holes on D to spend 17 mill on one player.

    if i were him i would definatly want to switch over to a 3-4. i mean speed is only so important as a 4-3 DE seeing as the only time you would need it is AFTER you've broken through and are chasing down the QB (btw im talking about speed not quickness, we all know he has that too). on the other hand, just imagine him playing as an OLB who has the linear speed to keep up with half of our recievers IN ADDITION to being about 25 pounds heavier then the average OLB is. thats how you utilize a "freak"
    I think you misunderstood what he was saying. He was saying that Peppers could keep playing the DE position in a 3-4. It's not a far fetched idea. Bruce Smith played in the 3-4 and he was about 285 lbs. Although Smith might have been a bit bulkier as he was not as tall as Peppers is.

    I think if he went to a 3-4 he would be everything Merrimen was for the bolts....if not better
