I am curious to see where he goes-  I would like him back in Green Bay, but if he wants a ring and doesn't care about money I can see him signing with New England.

If he doesn't care about the money he might return to GB.  Our QB is not as long in the tooth as Brady.  I don't know why but I have this gut feeling Brady's best days might be behind him.  He will be 40 in August and once a player reaches that age his skills can go to hell almost overnight.

Hope the packers don't invest too many $$ in resigning him.  There pool of FA dollars will spend out all too quickly, I think.  But if the cost drops enough, I'd not be shocked to see them sign him yet again.  Will be interested to see what he gets, and where.

I would take him back for a once year deal as a pass rush specialist. I guess it all depends what the market dictates.

This is of course what his role has been since his original signing. The Packers use him situationally, and limit his snaps early in the season to keep him fresh for the playoffs. And how many teams have the kind of confidence the Packers have that the playoffs are effectively a guarantee? The question isn't whether he can still be effective. The question is, how much do you pay a part-time player? Last year his cap hit was $10 million; that his dead cap cost was also $10 million made it more cost effective to keep him.

 And he was productive for the time he played. But is he worth that much, when there are so many current players that are FA's, and there is an increasing rumbling to being in a veteran or two to shore up the defense? And though Peppers has indicated he would like to stay in GB, at what price? That is the real question.Would New England be an option? Hardly, because they are notoriously cheap at signing FA's. So, can they come to an agreement? We'll see, probably after the rest of the Packers FA's have been dealt with, and TT decides whether he sees some value in the FA market.

The Packers could have and should have cut Peppers and saved 8 million last year.  He's not the worst player in the league, but it's past time to move on.
I'm right and everyone else does not have an opinion worth talking about.

Maybe we could package him with Hundley and trade them to the browns for the #1 pick

Still don't understand the concept of market value do you?  MIke Glennon is expected to receive 14 to 15m  in free agency.  But Brett Hundley is worth less than a 5th?  Ok.

FWIW I'm not the only one...

Cheech id hate to see your reaction if we would have cut Peppers and went with Jayrone and Fackrell last season. Cause I guarantee you those two wont have even come close to matching Peppers production last year.

I was already drafting with the contingency he was retiring.

Personally, I did not think he or CM 3 played well last year.  Especiaily considering how expensive they were.

Fackrell was substantially more productive per snap.

James Harrision from Pittsburgh just signed a 2 year deal worth 1.75 mil per season. Charles Woodson played his final 2 years for the Raiders for about that much as well.

If we can get Peppers back on a 1 year deal for between 1.75-2.75 mil, I'd be willing to bring him back and just use him very situationally.

His agent made it sound like there is some mutual interest in Peppers returning to the Pack.
