Hello Bronco Country,
The offseason of boardom is winding down and we are weeks away from Training Camp and some recent news has caught my attention.
The Panthers and Julius Peppers did not reach a long term deal before the deadline. For some unfortunate reason when I get things stuck in my head they stick for a while. I have been thinking for years that Peppers is the type of stud on the DLine that would make us much more competative on the defensive side of the ball. It just seems to me that since Trevor Pryce left we haven't had domination up front. Here are some things to consider, tell me what I missed.
PRO'S - You aqcuire an All Pro DE with a ton of sacks his whole career. Provides an instant impact on the DLine and gives us flexability to create all types of match up problems with Ayers as both can play standing up or at the 5 Technique. Adds another veteran leader.
CON'S - He will be expensive, obviously his a new long term deal would be necessary and probably cap consuming. He is now in the prime of his career turning 29 in January so giving a guy a long term deal means he may start to show decline in just a few years into the deal. Has had some injury concerns but played healthy and very well last season.
What would it take to get Peppers in Denver, well there are a couple ways, draft picks or maybe dangle Brandon Marshall. Tell me Bronco fans, would you make a play for Julius Peppers?
