Peppers says he wants to play for Cowboys

No matter how dysfunctional their locker room may or may not be, the Cowboys are still one of the most popular destinations for players in search of big paydays. Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis tried to use the Cowboys as leverage heading into free agency, but the feeling was never mutual. Now, Julius Peppers has become the latest star to say he wants to join the Cowboys.

He wants to play outside linebacker for a 3-4 team, which makes the Cowboys a good fit in one way. The problem for Peppers is that Dallas is preparing to make DeMarcus Ware the highest-paid defensive player in the league. Ware and Peppers would certainly become the most formidable pass-rushing duo in the league, but it's not going to happen.

Last offseason it was Chad Ocho Cinco who wanted to join the Cowboys. I guess Peppers will be the biggest "potential" Cowboys of this offseason. But again, it's not going to happen.
