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.

He has played some at LOLB, but he has been predominately our ROLB. He has always been more productive from the Right.

Pro-Football-Reference shows CAR as a 4-3 while Peppers was there.

Let's see if Ted Thompson matches this...

"Filed to ESPN: Pending a physical, former Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware reached agreement with Broncos on 3-year, $30M contract include $20M gtd."

Lol...[laughing]


I'm sorry, that is absolutely ridiculous. Denver now has 2 huge guaranteed contracts on two guys that haven't finished the past couple seasons.

Clay is better at ROLB
Perry is better at LOLB

I agree with the overall point, but I won't be surprised at all if Denver is still playing while the Packers are sitting at home watching TV this post season.

Whoever said Peppers played a 3-4 in Carolina... No. He was the marquee player of a 4-man defensive line that included Kris Jenkins, Brentson Buckner, and Mike Rucker.

After he bolted from Carolina, he expressed the desire to play in a team that runs the 3-4. He played end with his hand on the ground his entire career, and his size at 6'7" doesn't exactly make him the best fit. He does his best with his hand in the ground.

That, along with the fact that our defensive line coach is Mike Trgovac (whom Peppers didn't like much) makes me believe he wouldn't exactly be a good fit.

I got the 3-4 info from the bleacher report. My bad. QCHuskerFan was right, and danreb, so are you.
