Peppers Would be a Great Fit for the Redskins

We threw it out there awhile ago that Julius Peppers would be a great fit for the Skins this offseason, as he will be a free agent. Today on Fredericksburg.com they pick up on that same thought.

Redskins haven’t had a havoc-wreaking defensive end since the days of Dexter Manley and Charles Mann. The last time a Redskins defensive end posted more than 11 sacks was in 1991. Mann did it that year–on a team that won the Super Bowl, which probably isn’t a coincidence. The Redskins, who haven’t drafted a defensive lineman in the first round since Kenard Lang in 1997, may get a chance to bid on the services of Julius Peppers.

    very risky. itmighth workouttho. heck, what can it hurt.

  2. Clinton says:

    Peppers has said publicly that he wants to play in a 3-4 defense, and that is largely why he’s trying leave Carolina. As such, he would not be a good fit for the 4-3 Redskins.
