Just a hunch. He fits a 3-4 DE perfectly, just what we need. And Trgo was his line coach and DC while in CAR. He knows him well. 7.5 sacks last season and 2 FFs.

That's one piece of the puzzle I would like to see here in GB, even at 34 years old. The guy can still play.

Bold prediction. Pick is 34 too. We picked him up as a FA long ago at this point. I am not sure Ted ever signs a guy over 30 from another team.

He's 34. Never played a 3-4 DE to my knowledge. He's more of a pass rushing threat than a hold the line and take on blockers guy. So he really doesn't fit the Caper's mold for DE's.

Other than all of that...

Peppers is old and takes a lot more plays off than he did when he was younger. He's still going to demand the bigger contract, even at 34. He played in a 3-4 in Carolina (I believe) and wasn't really that much of a fit.

Now, if the Packers were able to get him for a decent price, sure...but I don't think that is going to be the case with him.

I'm for signing him - cheap, maybe with incentives. He seemed like he could still play in bursts last year. We don't need him to be an every down player. The way the Packers D is evolving - getting away from big fatties, a DE capable of rushing the passer is ideal. Imagine him on the same side as Matthews. Who are you gonna double team?

Peppers has been successful as an Edge rusher, I don't think he would be effective playing inside. And when we drop in to pass defense he would need to be on the edge, the same edge Matthews is best at.

Clay Matthews had 13.5 sacks as LOLB in 2010. He is the same player at LOLB and ROLB. Therefore, if the Packers get someone who is a "ringer" at one side, they can move Clay.


2010 and 2011 30 games LOLB
Games: 30
Sacks: 19.5
QB Hit: 34
QB Hurries: 88


2012 and 2013 ROLB
Games: 23
Sacks: 20.5
QB Hit: 18
QB Hurries: 46

He only had 81 sacks over an 8 years span playing in CAR's 3-4. Another 38 in 4 years with CHI in their 4-3.

Yeah, he's old, but may be of great service as a situational specialist at DE. Think this guy doesn't want a ring?

My bad. I wasn't sure what Carolina ran back then.

But he's 34. Can't play Special Teams. Could be intriguing when Packers go to 2 DL, pair him with Daniels to rush. But he's 34.

He would instantly be the oldest player on the Packers. By 4 years. Not exactly TT's type of player; i.e young and cheap.

Yeah, you're right. He is out of Ted's age wheelhouse. I posted this before seeing Chris Clemons was released by SEA. I can't believe that. Clemons is 32, with 39 sacks over the last 4 seasons... I would sign him immediately. Could probably get both Clemons and Peppers for less than what Byrd got. But, Clemons is outside of the age bracket as well...

Personally, I think that needs to change with Ted. Get some true veteran leadership in the house. Can't do it signing only young players. They can be incredible mentors to the younger talents we draft.

hardrocker950 (3h) : Just wonderful - my pick em didn't register....
beast (12h) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (13h) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (13h) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (14h) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (14h) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : High-ankle sprain could sideline Cook
Zero2Cool (26-Sep) : Odell Beckham Jr, Dez Bryant, Alshon Jeffery and Julio Jones on tap for Packers. Yippie.
Cheesey (26-Sep) : Arnold Palmer was a class act all around. RIP
Smokey (26-Sep) : Rest in Peace Arnold Palmer, you blessed us all .
hardrocker950 (26-Sep) : What a strange weekend of football
jdlax (26-Sep) : What's up, friends? It's like bizzaro world right now trailing the Vikings. Blah.
GoPack1984 (25-Sep) : Ryan Fitzpatrick threw 6 interceptions!
TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Cleveland loses.
The_Green_Ninja (25-Sep) : I swear, Jacksonville's hot weather must be a huge advantage. Kept it super close with the Ravens
TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Su'a Cravens with a big INT. A guy I wanted.
TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Can Cleveland win?
Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : T.J. Lang said after one of Aaron Rodgers' TD passes the Packers quarterback head-butted Lang in excitement and said "I'm back."
Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : Terrelle Pryor could see snaps at quarterback
Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : inactives 6 Callahan 37 Shields 42 Burnett 52 Matthews 68 Murphy 95 Jones 98 Guion
Mucky Tundra (25-Sep) : GET HYPE
Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : Packers aim to showcase speed of Ty Montgomery, Trevor Davis
Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : CB Quinten Rollins will start for Shields. Micah Hyde for Burnett. Julius Peppers for Matthews. Kenny Clark for Guion.
Tezzy (25-Sep) : Probably will not be on the top of the Pick'Em leaderboard after today, soaking it in beforehand
Tezzy (25-Sep) : Foosball!
yooperfan (25-Sep) : Game day, tee it up and get this show on the road!
