ESPN has a report about Pepper’s interest in the two teams. This is not breaking news because I reported that Peppers had interest with the Cowboys about a month ago. But is he a good fit for this team?
The Cowboys priority is signing sack leader DeMarcus Ware. The Cowboys still have Greg Ellis and Anthony Spencer. Do they really need Julius Peppers, who is asking to be released from a team that had the second seed in the NFC playoffs this year, and one of the better running attacks in football?
The Cowboys would be better off securing depth for the offensive line and secondary and hoping for a gem in the late rounds of the 2009 draft with any other picks.
Julius Peppers is not a guy the Cowboys need to make it to the next level.
