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.

Peppers had a 6 year $84 million contract with the Bears - $42 million guaranteed - presumably most of that bonus. I would think that amounts to a HUGE piece of "dead money" under the cap for the Bears.

Basically its a 1 year deal for 8.5 million with a friendly cap hit for the Packers in 2014 with limited dead money in 2015 and 2016. Unless part of the 30 million max is other bonuses (Pro Bowl, certain #sacks etc) or includes a really really huge 2016 base salary his cap hit will be well over 10 million in 2015 and 2016.

If he plays well he has already shown his willingness to restructure so I could see him agreeing to something else next season as well.

I guess you can consider this a blockbuster signing for the Packers simply because of the name alone but it is a short term fix. It may turn out to be a great short term fix as I do expect him to contribute a great deal to the Packers pass rush but we will be left with a similar situation next season. Hopefully by then Jones will have come on strong and we can make a seamless transition.

I'm excited because I have seen how disruptive he can be but my excitement is tempered by the fact that he is 34 years old and is pretty much a stopgap fill in. Regardless, I suspect for at least 2014 our pass rush just got a whole lot better.


There is another possible outcome that I will not go into details about until I see the details of this deal but suffice it to say it involves unclear (to me anyway) terminology a lot more than 3.5 million in cap hit this year.

He was in the last year of the deal and I think they reworked it once so instead of 7m they actually have 8.3m in dead money for him this year.

I saw an article somewhere that the Packers are bringing back the elephant end position that Tim Harris use to play. Could it be that Peppers is being brought as D Jones' teacher on how to rush the passer and play the run tough?

I'm very skeptical about how many downs Peppers has in him per game at age 34, but if he can help bring along Jones, then this signing will be well worth it. Hopefully Big Julius will get to end his career with a championship.
