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.


2013 stats

Peppers
1 int
7.5 sacks
31 tackles
2 forced fumbles

Raji
13 tackles


I think Peppers gives more to the team, therefore he got more from the team.

I'm thinking he's a young 34 yrs. old - never seriously injured...


That'll change this year...

I hear it's 3.5 mill against the cap in 2014. Hardly affects anything cap-wise. Good stuff.

If that's true, good, he's cheaper than Raji!

Peppers picks the Packers

Quote:
It’s unclear how much Peppers has left in the tank. His compensation from the Packers will reveal what his new team thinks of a player who undoubtedly will be moved to outside linebacker in the team’s 3-4 defense.


Hmmmm? How do they know that?

My guess is he stays at DE. 6-7 285 lb is pretty decent size for a DE and he's been pretty good holding up against the run.

IMO, this is a very smart deal. Low risk/high reward type of deal. They only gave him 7.5 mill guaranteed. If he doesn't work out, they can just cut him and not take any substantial hit. However, if it does work out, the Packers just added both a versatile player along the DL and a veteran leader to show our young guys how to get it done.

Well I just had a flash of a thought

Base-DE
2 DL-Nickel OLB

I can't imagine him dropping back in coverage much if they do that. And would it be too much to ask if we can get some combination of Peppers, Clay, Daniels and Perry/Jones/Neal all rushing the QB all at once?

I don't know why you guys are looking at him as anything more than a designated pass rusher. I doubt he even starts but if he does, it will be at DE. I hope they stick him right next to D. Jones in the locker room. Peppers has been a very good pass rusher in this league for a long time, and I'm sure Rodgers will be glad to have him on our team instead of against him.
