Peppers will request trade if designated as franchise player (http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d5d80ebe704&template=with-video-with-comments&confirm=true)

Thats pretty much the scenario that will go down. They will franchise him and then trade him, instead of just letting him go~

Yeah, but not to us.

i'm not so sure the panthers will slap the tag on him.

Carolina Panthers (http://www.nfl.com/teams/carolinapanthers/profile?team=CAR)

Julius Peppers (http://www.nfl.com/players/juliuspeppers/profile?id=PEP422041) requires a $17 million tag because of the 20 percent rule (http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d5d806a24a3&template=without-video&confirm=true), and the Panthers would have to use all of their cap space to get that done and still might have to cut a player before Feb. 27. Jordan Gross (http://www.nfl.com/players/jordangross/profile?id=GRO400181) is a quality starting left tackle and his franchise tag would be $8.45 million, so it looks like Gross to me.

I wonder if the Chiefs 3rd overall would be able to get him? I'm guessing we would have to add 2010's 1st as well but who knows hehe

You know I look at the title of the thread and i'm not even gonna read the original article before I post this. IT IS NOT GONNA HAPPEN. We aren't getting Peppers. We aren't winners and besides the Chiefs just plain don't want him. Please quit talking about him being a possibility.

I agree Codac. We won't get him but not because we don't want him but because I don't see us running a 3-4 this year. He wants to go to a team with a 3-4 to be a LB and that's why he wants out of Carolina. I really would like to see him but we won't get him because we have a 4-3 and if we were to switch it wouldn't be this year. Maybe that's why it's taking awhile to find a DC because I would assume Pioli would pick a guy that has both 4-3 and 3-4 experience so we could switch in due time. Again I think 4-3 would be fine for our personnel.

Easy pick. Under your circumstances, Jim Haslett would be the guy. He has experience with 3-4 and 4-3.

I would not spend the money on him.

Money talks. Peppers will be in a 4-3 if he gets a good offer. He is just using the 3-4 conversation as leverage to get out of Carolina.

I'm doubtful the Chiefs will alnd him, but for different reasons thatn have been mentioned in this thread. There are a long line of teams that will be making big offers to him. I'm not sure the Chiefs will be willing to make the biggest offer.
