Julius Peppers wants to play in 2017

When the 2016 season was winding down, Packers linebacker Julius Peppers said that he wasn’t ready to talk about his plans for the 2017 season.

Peppers said he would “figure it out at some point” and that point has arrived with the new league year starting later this week. Peppers’ agent Carl Carey said that his client wants to be on the field in 2017.

“Julius, after taking some time to reflect during the offseason, has decided that he still has the desire and enthusiasm for the game, and his intention is to play a 16th NFL season,” Carey said, via ESPN.com.

Peppers is set to become a free agent this week and Carey said that he has spoken to the Packers about a deal that would continue Peppers’ stay in Green Bay.

    If I’m the Packers I’d move on but I could see them bringing him back if they lose Nick Perry. He had more of an impact rushing the QB then Clay Matthews or Datone Jones last year. I still think the Packers will draft multiple linebackers in this year’s draft.

    Back for a swan song with the Panthers actually makes a lot of sense…

    as a Packers fan, I wouldn’t mind him staying only if the price is right

    however, I could see peppers landing in dallas giving it one more shot…then calling it a career

    His last and best chance to win a SuperBowl is by returning to the Packers. Even my six year-old niece knows that. Anybody posting on this thread that doesn’t believe the same thing has a football acumen somewhere below her.

    I’ll give you one guess who that is.

    Patriots would make a lot of sense here.

    He needs to stay in Green Bay where he can continue to share some of Clay’s magic juice.

    Judging by his and fabios play they should ask for a refund from their steroid suppliers!

    He’s an athletic freak, but I’d rather see the Packers spend money on an every down player like Lang than a designated pass rusher. Or use it to help get a competent FA CB.

    Gomer’s wife must have really stocked up on those Chinese roids from the Guyer Institute!

    That’s one thing you don’t have to worry about ariani, no one will ever accuse anyone on your team of being on the juice…

    Peppers has been on roids for years. He was caught up with Gomer Manning’s wife’s shipments from Guyer. Remember?

    Harrison, Matthews, Manning and Peppers all are clearly guilty. Mike Neal retired after having a middling career, so no one cared, which is why his name disappeared from being “cleared” by liar Goodell.

    And your proof that they are “clearly guilty” is?

    I thought the Pack used him pretty effectively last year. With Perry likely leaving, you think it would make sense to sign him of the price is right.

    You can post that lie all you want, but it never happened.

    The Panthers were doing it, but not the Vikings.

    Look at Clay’s protruding forehead for god’s sake. My guess is that he won’t be sharing much of anything.
