Quiet Panthers DE Julius Peppers downplays leadership talk

Julius Peppers runs around the field with the ease of a receiver, cutting and slashing his way to the quarterback with speed and strength. Off the field, the Carolina Panthers defensive end is much less visible, often walking around alone, headphones over his ears and a backpack on his shoulders. And even after owner Jerry Richardson last week challenged him to become the leader of the defense, the shy Peppers doesn't plan on any big changes. (USA Today)
