Carolina Panthers impending free-agent DE Julius Peppers announced his retirement Friday, Feb. 1. He finishes fourth on the NFL's all-time sack list.

Footballguys view: Peppers looks like a hall of famer and had the type of career that any #2 overall pick should hope for.

  Panthers | Julius Peppers' future uncertain    Tue Jan 8, 02:28 AM

Carolina Panthers DE Julius Peppers is planning on taking a 'couple of weeks' to decide if he wants to return next year, according to a league source, who also claims Peppers' decision is '50-50.'

Footballguys view: Peppers is not the player he used to be but he could stick around in the league as a part-time pass rusher. His 5.0 sacks in 2018 were the lowest since an injury shortened 2007 with the Panthers. We expect Peppers would have some interest if he decides to keep playing in 2019.

  Panthers | Julius Peppers likely to be limited    Sat Jun 16, 03:36 PM

Carolina Panthers DE Julius Peppers likely will receive limited snaps this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: That only makes sense for a seasoned veteran like Peppers. Each of the last three years Peppers has seen his snaps go down from 700 (2015) to 587 (2016) to 500 (2017). The Panthers should use the future Hall of Famer as a part-time player to get pressure on the quarterback.

  Panthers | Julius Peppers staying with Carolina    Wed Mar 14, 01:07 PM

Free-agent DE Julius Peppers (Panthers) plans to re-sign to a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: It's been an amazing career for Peppers and he's not really showing many signs of age. The former first-round pick (2002) has only missed a couple of games during his pro career. He played almost 500 snaps last year and racked up 11.0 sacks. Recovering from shoulder surgery, Peppers is likely to be limited during OTAs and minicamp. He'll be ready Week 1 for his role as a pass-rusher.

  Panthers | Julius Peppers rehabbing shoulder    Sun Feb 25, 03:39 PM

Carolina Panthers impending free-agent DE Julius Peppers (shoulder) is rehabbing his surgically repaired shoulder at Bank of America Stadium but still has not decided if he will play in 2018, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Peppers was very productive last year and one of the team's better defensive ends, posting 11 sacks, his highest total since 2012. The team will have a lot of snaps to replace if Peppers doesn't return, likely falling to 2017 third-round pick Daeshon Hall.

Carolina Panthers DE Julius Peppers said he hasn't decided yet on whether he will play in the 2018 season. He added that his focus is on the team's Wild Card round playoff game Sunday, Jan. 7, versus the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: In 16 games this year, Peppers proved that he can still play at a high level and compiled 11 sacks along the way. He is set to be a free agent in March, and the soon to be 38-year old pass rusher still has quite a bit left in the tank.
