From My local Station in NC Peppers won't sign long-term deal with Panthers - WRALSportsFan.com I was stoked when I read this. I work with a Panther Fan. This guy has been telling me for years the Panthers needed to Get rid of Delhome. Well the other day he told me that Peppers is a free agent and that word he was hearing was that Peppers did not want to play for the Panthers anymore. I jokingly told him I would give him Cassel for Peppers and he looked a bit intrigued. Then today I read this. I think this is the ideal trade. This would be a win win for both Franchises in my opinion. Of course for us he would play outside linebacker. But could you imagine having Peppers and Thomas as your bookends???? This alone would improve the Pats passing defense infinately. I would do this deal in a minute! What do you guys think.
