Love that guy. 

Yes, letting that guy walk after the 2016 season was one of Ted Thompson's bigger blunders.

Not ragging on the guy, but more and more we seem to be defining TTs time here with guys he let go before their time. I suspect that Peppers wanted to end his career in Carolina - so how amenable he was or would have been to GB offers - cant say - but we could have used his production.

I was reading earlier this morning after my post above that Julius loved his time in GB and it wasn't his decision to leave.  It was clear by his play in Carolina after he returned that he could still play at a high level.

 wonder what kind of NBA career Julius Peppers would’ve had if he chose basketball over football

First thing I think of is the phrase "guys that big shouldn't move that fast" The man was an absolute freak of nature. Bonafide HOFer and an absolute terror off the edge

I’ve always been under the impression that he never really gave full efforts, a lot of the time he took plays off but he was such a freak athlete that it worked out great for him.

If the NBA had been an option he would have chose it.  Basketball was his love.  But he was to small to be a big in the NBA.
