He's played RE and LE in a 4 - 3 his career.

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! [grin1]

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.

-Bacteria, hit the weight room!

This is my thought as well. I am wondering if this is Ted Thompson wanting to get some veteran leadership and mentoring for our all our young guys.

That being said I do believe that Peppers still has some motivation as he lacks a Super Bowl ring and he is definitely a HOF candidate and a Ring would no doubt solidify his place in Canton.

After watching those clips JP we can see JP lined up all over the place including wide of the OT and even wide of the TE. He can play the Elephant position.

It must feel weird for Peppers to actually have what we would call a real quarterback on his team now.

Wow! - I never expected this ...

I bet they had to ask rodgers if it was ok they sign him; he used to go after rodgers big time.

I remember him blocking a was it a fg or a extra point last year?

He is a fast long armed sack machine.

To be honest I would of liked orakpo more - but perhaps peppers was the better signing.

Last year the Bears had so many injuries he was the only threat on their D Line, even playing inside sometimes, and he still managed a statistically average season...certainly not what they were paying him for but he was still a viable player.

Now add him to a team with better talent all over the D and I think he will look better. In addition, Raji will look a lot better as well, since he won't be playing DE at all and will likely see fewer doubles. I

I see the biggest change being Peppers instead of Perry/Neal at nickel DE, a huge upgrade, and some immediate development with Darone Jones with the veteran presence.

Not the impact move it would have been 4 years ago, but I like fill-in moves leaving more flexibility in the draft...now go for a stud Safety or Center in rounds 1 and 2.
