When ESPN or the Daily News steals that headline, remember you read it here first…
As brought to our attention by reader tk76, the blog Don’t Boo the Birds is reporting that Julius Peppers is interested in playing for the Eagles, and the Eagles may have the interest and the cap room to sign him.
He doesn’t reveal his source, but frankly, I’m running with it. Peppers was the player I targeted in my Eagles off-season blueprint, and despite some reports that he wanted to play in a 3-4 defense, this may not be the case.
Peppers is exactly the type of elite player our defense needs. We are chock full of above average talent, but lack that Ed Reed or Shawn Merriman type force. Peppers could be that player for us, and I would be thrilled to land him. The Eagles need to make a splash this offseason. Peppers would be like D.J. Fluker jumping off the high dive.
