Peppers on Rod Marinelli: "I'm open to any suggestions, and any tips he has. I know the guys he has worked with. I've seen his resume. I know he can only help take my game to the next level."
Chester Taylor on Jay Cutler: "I believe he's a tough quarterback. He's the type of quarterback who won't go down. I kind of see a little Brett Favre in him."
