Adam Schefter "49ers should trade for Peppers"

this

exactly.

plus peppers is old, untested in our defensive system, and we already spent a load on a pass rushing DE. hed cost a ton to get, and then a ton to keep.

BAD MOVE.

OLD ?

1 year younger than Justin Smith, 1 year older than Osi.

He would def. be a player in our nickel and dime sets but remains to be seen how he would fare in the base D. He seems to think he can play in a 3-4 judging by his comments this past offseason. He is definitely a better pass rusher by far than Justin Smith.
Peppers is a one dimensional pass rusher who's is not known for us run stopping skills. When people want to run the ball on Carolina, they run it on Peppers side. Since we run a 3-4, he will be counted on to stop the run as a 3-4 DE. I just don't think that is is strong suit.

Put him at OLB you say? Well, look up north in Green Bay where they put their Pro Bowl 4-3 end Aaron Kampman as a stand up 3-4 OLB. On the Minnesota/GB Monday night game, he looked really lost and the cameraman picked up on it. The announcers even made a comment that GB is not utilizing his skills properly. That might be the case with Peppers when he comes to the Niners. Where exactly do you put him?

Switch to the 4-3? Hmm. Peppers and Justin Smith at the edges, and the BEST MLB in the game? That might work.
Peppers is going to want a Haynesworth type deal. He's 30 and never played in the 3-4 and wildly inconsistent. I don't buy the fact that Singletary can light a fire under just anybody. It worked with this team, I believe because they went through it together. Peppers also had to be called out by Jon Beason who is 6 years his junior and clearly has taken over leadership on that team. I wouldn't risk adding any combo of qb/oline/pass rusher for Peppers at this point. I'd rather have the 2 picks and see how it goes down. As for the points on Allen he was 26 when he got traded.

Right, but Justin Smith also costs less and came without the expense of a first round pick. I get what your saying in that his age shouldn't matter. But Smith has busted his ass his whole career, Peppers hardly has and I doubt he will once he gets paid.

Like GoFD pointed out in the trade deadline thread in NFL Talk, this is likely a similar situation to Moss in Oakland. No desire to play for them so no desire to give 100% on every down.

Edwards 3rd rounder is conditional, it could turn into a 2nd( FWIW the "scrubs" in that trade were a #3 WR at best and a ST'er). Also premier pass rushers have a higher trade value than WR's do.

Jared Allen was worth a 1st AND 2 3rd rd picks.... Peppers for just a 1st is a steal IMO

Jared Allen is younger than peppers when that happened. Peppers is gonna b 30 and looks like he's heading on the downside of his career or why would they want to trade him for? Peppers has not performed this year to be valued as a 1st round pick especially if were not going to get an extension out of it. Y would we want to give him an extension if he hasn't prove anything on the 3-4. Jared Allen was always a 4-3 lineman there is a difference.

We play nickel at least 30% of every game if not more so he would play a familiar position then. Though he has no experience in the 3-4 base D. He could possibly fit as a 1 gap end but has the athletic ability to be tried as an OLB. Would be interesting to see how exactly he would fit here. He himself said he would like to play in a 3-4.....FWTW.

His performance this year has been addressed above....see Randy Moss in all likelihood.

How can anyone claim he's not performing or looking like he's on the 'downside' of his career? 17.5 sacks in 20 games is pretty lacking I guess? When the hell was the last time a 49er has put up 14.5?

1 comment about him as an OLB in the 3-4 as compared to Kampman.....he is far more athletic than AK.

2 years ago 2 sacks, last year in a contract year he had 16.5. This year in a contract year, he was not doing as well until Beason called him out. After he gets paid, who knows what will happen. This move isn't going to happen. Were he just a free agent, then it'd be a different story, but for a first rounder I'd never do it.

I can buy this arguement cuz its a valid one, but to say he isnt producing or is declining is.... wow

If they don't move him now they might not be able to tag him without major issues or taking less than a 1st in the offseason.

We could try putting a conditional 2nd on the table.

If we were to offer a 1st round pick.....we need to offer ours not THEIRS.

Don't matter bro your keyword is "possibly" so your not sure. You don't trade a 1st round pick for a guy that wants alot of money when we have to resign willis and others.

Randy moss got traded for a 4th round pick? How is that relevant to your statement?

KRS, if this trade was on the table during the off-season, I would be more supportive.

But mid-season 4-3 DE and we had to convert him to a 3-4 OLB? I ain't buying that.

When John Fox gets fired they'll blow up that team save for a few guys like Beason, Williams, Stewart, Gross, and maybe Steve Smith. Peppers wants to get paid. When he discussed his playing in the 34 he mentioned teams, specifically the Cowboys I think. Can't negotiate a long term deal with him till after the season, so its not worth it. If we were one player away from the super bowl and it'd cost us a second to rent him for the rest of the year hell yeah I'd do it, but not under the current circumstances.

I understand your frustration but we need our 1st round picks and he is not worth it. Unproven and we need the money to resign willis and company.
