What does New England have that we don't? Why shouldn't we be chasing after Peppers? Seems like Peppers would actually generate some excitement for us, and actually address a NEED.

Don't you know that it's the offense that is the problem with the team? In fact, it's our pro-bowl quarterback that needs to go!

Seems to me Carolina would be a logical landing spot for Jay. Surely, the Panthers are ready to move on without Delhomme, especially since they have a team built to win now. Cutler for Peppers and this years 1st and next years 1st.

I see a few possible reasons:

1) He'll cost significant value in draft picks to acquire him in a trade.
2) We then have to sign him to a very significant deal.
3) He'd be converting to a position he's never played before.
4) He'll soon be on the wrong side of 30 for pass rushers.
5) His motor has been severely questioned, especially in 2007. He was playing hard again in 2008 during a well publicized contract year.

I imagine we are considering him in our options. But, he's never played OLB in a 3-4, has he? Not sure how much playing time he's gotten standing up. He's not a typical 3-4 DE, that's for sure.

I wonder if part of it is having to spend a ton of money and trade value to acquire a guy who may or may not pan out as an OLB in the 3-4?

He also has a rep for being an up and down player.

I'd love to get him in Denver. He'd be better than anything we have... but I just wonder if the risk-reward is too imbalanced?

Oh, yeah, forgot about that.

Well, another scenario would be to trade Jay to some other team in a deal that included at least one 1st rounder. With two 1st rounders, we'd have the flexibility to trade one of them for Peppers.

. Seems almost too hard to believe that our Bronco world has been flipped upside down--instead of needing GREAT improvement in only 2 areas of our team (and modest improvement offensively), we are posied to now have a great need in all 3 phases of our game...

Pros: Solid player 2nd in sacks since 2004, Carolina would entertain trading him for a 2nd and possibly a future pick.
Cons: Not gonna make a great OLB in the 3-4(he cant drop into coverage due to his long lanky body), We would be on the hook for 16million, He essentially quit on his team 2yrs ago and only played hard last year to get a payday, and Carolina has nothing of real value to give us in return.

Peppers is the kind of guy, at this point in his career, where you bring him in as a final piece to make a dash for the Lombardi, ie, Neil Smith, not a guy you bring in during phase 1 of a rebuild.

Peppers has reportedly listed the Pats, Dallas, and a couple other NFC teams he'd like to be traded to. The Broncos are not on that list.

If we trade Cutler we are starting OVER. It would be dumb of Denver to get Peppers.

do we really have to ruin every god damn post with McDaniels and Cutler action?

I think it is a valid question, how about some valid answers/speculation
