Hope he still has some juice left. How the hell do they use him? He's not really a 3-4 guy is he? I can't imagine him moving inside on subpackages. Maybe this means they'll use him at end in 3 DL in nickel and dime this season?

I read an interview where he said he always wanted to play in a 3-4. For what it is worth. The guy is a situational beast. Awesome signing!

I'm thinking he's a young 34 yrs. old - never seriously injured, and way above average athleticism. I'm happy the Packers signed him. I wonder if he will be a DE all the way or if he plays some at OLB too. Hopefully he will teach Datone Jones some of what he knows.

GREEN BAY — Julius Peppers is a member of the Green Bay Packers.

That is not a misprint.

The ex-Carolina Panthers and Chicago Bears defensive end signed a three-year deal with the Packers on Saturday morning, a stunning bolt of free-agency lightning that delivers one of the NFL's best pass-rushers to a team that has historically avoided major free-agent splashes.

ESPN's Josina Anderson broke the story and reported that agent Carl Carey told Anderson that the deal is for three years and a maximum of $30 million, including $7.5 million in guaranteed money and $8.5 million in 2014 pay.

The eight-time Pro Bowl selection was released Tuesday by the Bears in a cost-cutting move. Peppers would have counted a whopping $18.183 million against Chicago's salary cap this season and had a base salary of $13 million.

Peppers, 34, spent his first eight NFL seasons with the Carolina Panthers after being picked in the first round of the 2002 NFL Draft out of North Carolina. He has 118.5 career sacks, the second-most in the NFL during his time in the league.

Peppers, who went to Chicago on a six-year, $84 million deal that including $42 million in guaranteed money in 2009, spent the past four seasons with the Bears and had 37.5 sacks while starting all 64 of the team's games over that span.

In Green Bay, Peppers is reunited with Mike Trgovac, who was his defensive coordinator with the Panthers. Trgovac is the Packers' defensive line coach.

He's played RE and LE in a 4 - 3 his career.

Two major questions

1. Where does he play? OLB or DE?

2. What number will he sport?
98 97 94 92 91 are the only 90's numbers left. I'm gonna guess 94

I was excited about this...if it happened 5 years ago. Maybe it will work out, and I hope you're right, I'm just skeptical.

Also, I haven't seen the numbers, but if it's true that he's guaranteed even more than Raji is, it seems like we're paying him a bit much (that's not an endorsement of Raji). I assume there is no way this deal lasts beyond 2 years, and better be back end loaded.

Agreed. I don't see him being here for more than two years between his salary and age.
