    Could we be talking with Chi about Peppers???



    Chicago needs a 1st round pick since they gave theirs up for Cutler.

    Ravens could really use Peppers to pair outside with Suggs. $145MM wouldn't be too much to spend on a pair of defensive ends, we'd easily have the most dominant pair in the NFL!

    Peppers I think really wants to play here.

    I could see it happen. Just sayin'...

    Not a shot. For one the bears don't have many picks to make themselves better, so they aren't going to trade him. Two, and probably the biggest reason, he costs way too much.

    psu, I think there is a poison pill rule in the uncapped year that prevents sign and trade scenarios.

    If we wanted Peppers, we would've gone after him. We didn't.

    Well done, sir! And you know, this is quite possible. And once we land Peppers, I think that we can certainly make a few more trades and pick up Nnamdi Asomugah, Darrelle Revis, and Peyton Manning -- at that point we'll be unstoppable!

    I would like to talk to them and see what it would take to get Olsen!

    For those who aren't getting the joke...this is just poking some fun at a certain poster who has made it his life's purpose to go on and on about how we needed Peppers and that he really would only want to play here.

    I would sure help if a joke post included:

    Ok I will play along.

    Post Peppers press conference;

    He was who I thought he was, and now the Bears may be who they used to be when Denny Green had to crown after letting them off the hook.

    I wanted the Ravens to pursue him, but not set the record for guaranteed money to do so. If they were not willing to stake out his driveway and box out Lovie Smith, then bid with a team willing to set the market it was not going to happen.

    It was worth a shot, but you can not get them all. He was a free agent, paid a record deal, not traded to the Pats for a 2nd round pick, which would have made me sick.

    We still need to upgrade the pass rush, but there may be a better use of that kind of money.

    "By Kevin Seifert
    We have been tracking guaranteed money on this blog ever since Detroit committed quarterback Matthew Stafford to an NFL-record $41.7 million on the eve of the 2009 draft. Finally, it's time for Stafford's deal to take a back seat.

    But as it turns out, the record remains in the NFC North family. (Would you have expected anything else?) Chicago guaranteed defensive end Julius Peppers $42 million on Friday, putting Peppers at the top of our list:

    Chicago defensive end Julius Peppers: $42 million
    Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford: $41.7 million
    Washington defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth: $41 million
    San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers: $38 million
    Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick: $37 million*
    Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger: $36 million
    New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning: $35 million
    Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan: $34.8 million
    Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning: $34.5 million
    Oakland quarterback JaMarcus Russell: $31.5 million
    Dallas quarterback Tony Romo: $30 million
    *Vick's deal has since been terminated.

    It will be interesting to see how long Peppers' record stands. If a quarterback is drafted No. 1 overall next month, you would think his guaranteed money would overtake Stafford. With only a $300,000 difference between Stafford and Peppers, there is a chance the record could soon fall. Other candidates include Manning and New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees, both of whom are expected to receive contract extensions this offseason."
