On one hand, Peppers is a productive security who wears many hats on gameday, and extra importantly, is a real chief on and off the sector. However he’s nonetheless a security who will need to receives a commission, as he ought to, this offseason. And the Giants even have depth at that place, which isn’t one thing they’ll say for others.

So, as a lot as I’d love the Jersey native to stay in his house state, I assume Peppers goes to go some other place. If his quantity is round $12.5 million, the Giants simply can’t do it. They already paid Leonard Williams in a giant means, and Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley could comply with.

I do know we mentioned this within the [Evan] Engram piece as effectively, nevertheless it’s much more obvious with Peppers. The Giants simply can’t afford him though he has been an anchor on protection these previous few years.
