PACKER UPDATE: "And despite valid concerns about the former North Carolina star’s work ethic, some team will undoubtedly make him one of the league’s highest-paid players within 48 hours of his hitting the open market. That team won’t be Green Bay. “I’d be extremely surprised if [GM] Ted Thompson shows much interest,” said a person familiar with the situation. “Besides the fact that Peppers would have to learn a new position with the Packers, you can be sure that [defensive line coach] Mike Trgovac won’t be saying many positive things about his former pupil.” Trgovac was Carolina’s defensive line coach for the first season of Peppers’ professional career before taking over as defensive coordinator in 2003. To put it mildly, the two didn’t exactly see eye to eye."
Maybe "shows much interest" means $$$ and if so, it's reasonable to assume Ted won't get into a free-for-all bidding war. However, he will (IMO) think about making a significant offer to Peppers [...big difference WRT thinking, planning, and executing...]. WRT Trgovac's opinion...don't think it'll be the deciding factor with Ted. I'd like to know whether Trgovac feels Peppers is one of if not the most talented outside rushers in the NFL or not...I think Peppers is and think he's athletic enough to play OLB too.
