Venerable New York Post columnist Steve Serby has an interesting take on free-agent-to-be Julius Peppers' chances of coming to the Giants. Said he'd make a good choice, especially if Osi Umenyiora leaves.
It's a fair enough point, though I tend to disagree. For all his marquee rep, I've never been a big Peppers fan. I've seen him get lost in too many games, and he's never truly had the big impact that a guy with six double-digit sack seasons should have. Still, he'd come with a huge pricetag, and I doubt the Giants would care to play in that ballpark.
Besides, he's a 3-4 guy. That doesn't mean he can't play a 4-3, or even stand up as a pass-rushing linebacker in a 3-4 look. I just think that, at 30, his best years probably aren't ahead of him.
That's must my opinion. Just for kicks, I want you guys to weigh this: Umenyiora vs. Peppers. Keep Osi, or cut him loose and go for Peppers. And no, you don't get to have both on the roster.
