    I was thinking about this myself after we announced Pendergrast, and all signs pointed to us running a hybrid D. Peppers already is a great DE for the 4-3, and he probably could be a decent OLB for a 3-4.

    Unfortunately he was franchised by carolina, so it will probably take more (in terms of draft picks) than I am willing to give them to get him over here. Unless Pioli can force someone into letting us trade down, and then we pick up another late 1st rounder or early 2nd rounder, and the planets line up just right, and we offer our 2nd rounder for him along with a sacrificial goat ... and we use our mid 1st rounder for someone like Cushing or Clay Matthews.

    But, lets get hypothetical for a second. Say we were to get Peppers, I think we would have a relatively formidable D. In the 4-3 we would have:

    DJ or Draft pick / Vrabel / DJ or draft pick
    Peppers // Dorsey // Tank // Hali

    and then to move to a 3-4, all that would have to happen is Peppers drop back to LB so it would look like:

    Peppers / DJ / Vrabel / Draft
    Dorsey // Tank // Hali

    I think that would be pretty strong against both the run and the pass for 2-3 years before Peppers starts to decline significantly. By then we would probably be fully transitioned to whichever defense we are going to stick with. Also, we would have probably drafted a replacement for guys like Peppers and Vrabel, and allowed them to develop for a year or two under their tutelage.

    A man can dream cant he ...

    Great point and good breakdown. Too bad, Carolina wouldnt take anything less than a limb for Peppers.

    No way. You combine compensation with what Peppers would want contractually and you can forget getting him in KC. Too expensive.

    We will not get Peppers. It is being reported by Vic Carruci that New England and Carolina are close to a deal for Peppers and the 2nd round pick we gave them for Casell.

    ESPN just reported that the Patriots were considering trading the 34th overall from us to Carolina for Peppers.
