I believe that we should try one of two options. They are as follows
1.You trade for Julius Peppers straight up with the Panthers. Don't know what you would have to give up besides the 1st round pick but it is worth it. Helps D-Line and D-Fence as whole. Here are some quotes from Peppers and/or his agent.
He states: "He certainly feels that he can excel and thrive in a 3-4 defense," Carey said. "He is also open to just another system in general that will allow him to maximize his athletic abilities."
He could do this with Mario on the other side plus our new agressive, attack style defensive system.
2. If he really desides that he just doesn't want to come to Houston or really does want to try to be a 3-4 OLB then we could possible pull off a 3 team deal with Car. and GB. In this deal GB would get Peppers and we would get Aaron Kampman who most would agree is not a good fit in a 3-4 system. Again what we would have to give up is unknown besides our 1st round pick.
Hey just an idea let me know what you guys think.
