Looks like the Panthers are not going to use the franchise tag on defensive end Julius Peppers, so he'll have an opportunity to test the market. And judging by his snarky statement that included the notion that the Panthers never gave him a chance to improve as a player, he won't be headed back to Charlotte.
Question is, do you guys want him? Should the Giants make a play for the 30-year-old pass-rusher?
As I said a couple of weeks ago, I've never been a big Peppers fan, unless they're sprinkled liberally around my chicken scarpariella. The guy disappears way too often for my liking and has never been the overriding force he had the ability to be. Now, at 30, it's unlikely he'll ever be that force. He'll undoubtedly be looking for big salary numbers, too, so signing him would also be an economic risk.
So what do you think? You like him?
