Peppers says he'll enter draft; won't play hoops

During a radio interview on Thursday night, Julius Peppers said he'll forego his senior season and will enter the NFL Draft. However, this decision was expected, yet it was another comment he made that raised some eyebrows.

It's far from an official statement, but he said he doesn't plan on playing basketball after the football season concludes.

"I don't want to risk injury playing basketball," he told WQXI.

Peppers averaged 7.1 points and 4.0 rebounds in 25 games last season.
