Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery didn’t care tot talk about Julius Peppers’ contract on Thursday in Indy.
“That would be a contract question, and I think I have had a very demonstrated history of not answering those questions,” Emery said. “I will say that Julius is part of our football team. He is under contract. We’re all coming off an 8-8 season. We have a lot to improve upon and that is where our heads are at.”
With Peppers scheduled to account for $18 million of the Bears cap, it would only make sense for them to either release him or ask him to take a pay cut.
