Podcast: Praising Peppers

The 2018 season is officially over and so is the career of one of the Panthers' all-time greats. Since our previous Press Coverage podcast, future Hall of Fame defensive end Julius Peppers announced his retirement. Max Henson and Bryan Strickland discuss.

  • We travel back to his beginnings as a reserve tight end and walk-on basketball player at the University of North Carolina.
  • We discuss his early years with the Panthers, his departure and his return. And his dominance throughout.
  • We also talk about Peppers the man, about how he started out soft-spoken and ended his career - well - still soft-spoken but more involved with his community at large.
  • And finally, the first post-Super Bowl podcast wouldn't be complete without a look back the big game itself.
