I see it as a huge advantage to get a veteran like this that allows the Packers to draft a couple of players over the next two years with a lot of upside that needs that first year to develop.

I can see scratching off DE in the first couple of rounds now and nabbing a player with a ton of potential in a later round and concentrating on Safety, ILB, and depth at OLB.

There is more to this than Peppers giving us two good years.

Call me surprised, I didn't not believe Ted would bring in Peppers. I never thought he was a great fit for the defense, but I can see how he improves them as a whole. I could see Neal and Peppers side by side perhaps doing stunts. Or Raji Peppers and Matthews on a side, that would guarantee Peppers single blocking. Hopefully he is a good teammate and helps Datone, and Worthy with technique.

Went over the numbers and this is a great damn deal we got for him. Say what you will about the brass but their contracts are usually pretty solid. Matthews needs to stay healthy though...

The Packers are definitely going to a hybrid look this season. They’re looking to install an elephant package into their defense. These were rumors, but this signing confirms them. I thought Mike Neal was a great fit for this package, but I have to imagine they signed Peppers to play it. Sometimes he'll lineup as a 4-3 defensive end, other times he'll stand up and play outside linebacker. In the case of Peppers, it's obvious he'll lineup as a 4-3 defensive end most of the time, so he gives them more flexibility.

Can you imagine a LG & LT getting in their stance on 3rd & 12 and looking up to see Matthews stacked behind Peppers? Think they'd be screaming for TE and RB help????? It's got situational promise!!!!!

I think it would make more sense to have them opposite of one another. Otherwise you could use three two block the two quite easily. They kept Cullen Jenkins and Clay Matthews opposite for this reason. You can't double both sides of the line and still maintain solid protection play in play out.

First reaction- HE"S TO OLD!
Second reaction- The numbers are pretty good.
Third reaction- Damn Uncle Teddy did it to us again. Even though most of us didn't expect him to go big.


Bring Peppers in on 2nd and long and 3rd down and he will get after the QB. He will be fresh for the whole game and still be able to do something when the game is on the line.

One thing is certain- JP is going to play balls out for at least 2 games a year. SWEET!!

Also since he was released we can still get a draft pick next year for EDS. Though it will probably be like a 6th or 7th.

More good news (assuming you think the signing of Peppers is good news) he won't count against the Packers in any compensatory draft pick calculations for the 2015 draft even if he does light it up.

I heard that Julius Peppers will count twice as much on the Bears cap than the Packers.

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


He's gonna be the elephant.

And he's gonna teach Datone Jones, Mike Neal and Nick Perry how to get it done.

I think the fact that he is able to show the younger players how to really do it is almost a bigger asset then him just being on the team.

Something that probably only interests me...

Reggie White was signed at age 32 and started playing professional football when he was 22 years old.

Julius Peppers is 34 and also started playing professional football at age 22.


Four seasons after age 34, White registered 47 sacks. That man was amazing. I think if the Packers get half that production out of Peppers in three seasons it'll be a good signing.

That' pretty pompous of you! Big Grin

If our pass rush improves and our defense jumps up to the 10-15 ranked range, Peppers will be worth every penny. But to expect a Reggie-like impact would be wishful thinking.
