Julius Peppers leaves Panthers teammates in the dust

The lasting image from the Carolina Panthers' June coaching sessions that wrapped up yesterday will be of defensive end Julius Peppers beating the rest of his teammates in sprints - seemingly without breaking a sweat. No one looked as athletic or as well conditioned as Peppers in the sprints, and teammate Mike Minter said he thinks it means something. "I'm really looking forward to seeing what he'll do this year with defensive tackle Kris Jenkins back in the middle," Minter said of Peppers. "I think he might break the sack record."
