Julius Peppers isn't done playing football just yet.
The 38-year-old free agent re-signed with the Panthers on Wednesday [url=http://www.eaglesauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dallas-goedert-jersey]Eagles Dallas Goedert Jersey[/url] , agreeing to a one-year contract.
The deal is for $5 million, with $2.5 million guaranteed, a person familiar with the situation said. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team does not release financial terms of contracts.
"I am fired up to have him back," Panthers coach Ron Rivera told The Associated Press. "It was amazing to have him as part of what we are trying to build and I think he can help us get to the next level."
The Panthers also officially announced acquisition of Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith in exchange for cornerback Daryl Worley, which was reported last week .
Peppers had contemplated retirement after the Panthers went 11-5 last season and made the playoffs as a wild card team.
Earlier this year Panthers outside linebacker Thomas Davis and center Ryan Kalil both said this will be their last season. Peppers could also be another player making a farewell tour in 2018.
Peppers is entering his 17th NFL season, including his 10th with the Panthers.
A nine-time Pro bowl selection, he returned to Carolina last season and had a productive season with 11 sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
Peppers helps provide some depth at defensive end after starter Charles Johnson was released earlier this offseason.
Peppers' 154 陆 sacks are the fourth-most in NFL history. He needs six sacks to pass Kevin Greene and move into third place on the NFL's all-time list.
The North Carolina native was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2002 draft by the Panthers following a successful college career with the North Carolina Tar Heels.
He played his first eight seasons in Carolina before joining the Chicago Bears in 2010. He played four years there and three more for the Green Bay Packers before returning to Carolina last year.
Peppers has played in 250 career games, tied for seventh-most of any defensive player in NFL history and has played in 160 straight games, the second-longest of any defensive player.
He was named to the NFL's All-Decade Team of the 2000s.
Peppers leads all active players with 20 career fumble recoveries and ranks second in forced fumbles (49) in the NFL since 2002. His 11 career interceptions rank second all-time for defensive ends.
Smith brings needed speed to the team's wide receiver position.
He said in a conference call Wednesday that he's thrilled to join the Panthers and have a chance to play with quarterback Cam Newton, whom he has worked out with in the past.
"The Eagles were very open about the trade, so I wasn't blindsided," said Smith [url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/garry-gilliam-jersey-cheap]Garry Gilliam Jersey[/url] , who had 36 catches for 430 yards and two touchdowns while starting 14 games last year for the Super Bowl champions. "But this is one of the places I wanted to be and I'm happy that it played out that way."
Smith played one season with former Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith in Baltimore and said he's like a "legit big brother I can talk to about anything."
The Panthers lost unrestricted free agent defensive tackle Star Lotulelei to Buffalo on Wednesday after he signed a five-year deal with the Bills.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady is making one thing clear as he prepares for his 19th NFL season: He doesn’t plan to stop playing football anytime soon.
In the epilogue of his seven-part Facebook Watch documentary series “Tom Vs. Time” released on Wednesday, the 41-year-old Patriots quarterback reiterated his desire to play at least five more years.
“I’d love to play 41, 42, 43, 44, 45,” Brady said. “It’ll be a challenge for me. I don’t think it’s going to be easy. It’s going to be hard to do. I think it’s going to be very hard to do. But I think I can do it. And once you stop, you’re done. And I think I’m not ready to say that I’m done, because I don’t feel like I am. I still feel like there’s things to accomplish. … It was really hard to get to this point. Why not finish it off?”
New England opens its 2018 season Sunday against Houston.
Despite winning five Super Bowls and becoming the oldest player ever to win MVP honors last season at age 40, Brady said he thinks there’s another level he can reach.
“I think the last eight years of my career have been better than my first 10, so I should just prolong it, and that’s what I’m trying to do [url=http://www.lionscheapshop.com]Lions Cheap Jerseys[/url] ,” he said.
Since its debut in January, “Tom Vs. Time” has provided viewers a glimpse into several behind-the-scenes moments with Brady on the field since he turned 40, as well as rare looks at his private life off the field.
This final episode also explored what Brady said is a new approach to certain aspects of NFL life, which includes ignoring the opinions people have of him.
At one point he seemed to address the criticism he’s received in recent seasons about his relationship with his personal health coach and business partner Alex Guerrero. During training camp, Brady called it “ridiculous” to suggest the suspension of Patriots receiver Julian Edelman is tied to his work with Guerrero. Those same questions about Guerrero prompted Brady to abruptly end his first media availability of camp.
“(The media wants) to talk about a lot of drama,” Brady said during the epilogue. “I’m sure a lot of teams have things like that. But ours is just to the tenth degree. I’m learning to do deal with it better.”
Brady also hinted at the rumored discord between him and coach Bill Belichick, which both have previously downplayed.
“I think anytime you’re together with people for a long period of time, relationships ebb and flow,” Brady said. “I think people are just looking for something to write and talk about. I just don’t give a (expletive) anymore that much about anything. … Nothing’s that big a deal to me anymore. Or maybe I’m just caring more about things that really matter — like my family, like people’s health, like life and death.
“But to worry about a lot of (expletive) of what people may say or think or feel — I really don’t care anymore.”
