Phil Emery doesn’t want to talk about Julius Peppers’ contract

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.
