Since the start of the offseason, there has been much uncertainty surrounding former Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers's future with the Carolina Panthers. He was NFC Rookie of the Year in 2002 and NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2004 while with the Panthers. There were indications that he is leaning toward returning for at least one year, but nothing more than that.

Peppers returned to Carolina last season and was a force while starting five of 16 games, registering 11 sacks and a pair of forced fumbles in 2017.

Peppers had shoulder surgery on February 8 after playing most of the 2017 season with a brace on his right shoulder.

Stephen Curry, Diddy Part of Group Looking to Buy Carolina Panthers
Stephen Curry , who grew up in Charlotte, is a Panthers fan looking to become part of the team's next ownership group. The earliest that a decision is expected to happen is at the owners' meetings in May in Atlanta.

Peppers said in January he wanted to take some time to think about whether he would play another season. He was released after the 2013 season and wound up with the Green Bay Packers, notching 25 sacks in three seasons.

He is the only player in National Football League history with over 150 sacks and 10 interceptions. He now ranks fourth all-time with 154.5 sacks, which is just 5.5 behind Hall of Famer Kevin Greene. Peppers also forced two fumbles and recovered two fumbles, despite playing with a labrum injury that required surgery after the season. His 11 career interceptions rank second all-time for defensive ends.
