I think they actually cut him and are on the hook for several million this year because of it.


Did I read wrong when this deal was originally made, but I think The Bears are actually paying Peppers more than The Packers are this year.

Anybody know for sure?

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


According the wise sage known as Zero2Cool, this is true!

Edit: Chicago Bears take salary cap hit for Julius Peppers

For the Bears the choices were keep him and count 18 million against the cap (he wasn't going to renegotiate) or cut him and count 8 million (I think those figures are about right) They had 8 million in dead money but they freed up 10 by letting him go. I don't think he actually got any salary from the Bears this season. I think it was his prorated signing bonus that hit the Bears cap but I could be wrong.

He won't be as cheap for us next year though and if we cut him we will be in a similar situation (though not quite as bad) If we keep him he will count 12 mill against the cap and if we cut him he will count 5 and whoever signs him will probably be saying the same thing about us that we are about the Bears right now.

Another good thing is that he won't count against the Packers when it comes time to figure compensatory picks. James Jones isn't having a terrible year in Oakland and I'd think he would net us a 4th.

OLD THREAD ALERT

DakotaT said: Go to Quoted Post
Yeah it was a salary cap dump, but the guy can still play. A very poor lack of judgment on their, very happy to scoop up their crumbs.


You were spot on, he could still play. I was quite happy watching him return an INT for a TD. If he produces even 75% of what he did last year during this upcoming year, I think that would be fantastic.

Well, as long as they don't run him into the ground like they did the first 10 or so games of the season (granted with rest he rebounded in the playoffs) I think he'll be fine.

He'll definitely be on a pitch count this year. They'll ease him off in December if they can, so he'll be fresh for the playoffs.

To me it seemed like Peppers made most of the plays early on, wondering why Matthews wasn't making more plays, and then at some point that reversed itself And people wondered why Peppers dropped off. I thought maybe teams decided to stop Matthews at the start of the season and as he was making more plays then slide it to Peppers. But overall balanced as the other team was taking one away all year.

But you could be right, maybe Peppers got run down. .. hopefully Neal and Perry will be able to step up.

I'm hoping Jarone Elliot steps up. The good thing is that we have proven players and aren't thin at OLB anymore.

Julius Peppers needs to be a situational pass rusher only. When he is fresh, he is a difference maker, but we can't expect him to stay fresh all season long when playing most the game. Use him right Dom, and he will still be an asset.

Green Bay Packers' NFC divisional playoff snap counts

Quote:
After playing 76.3 percent the snaps in the first 14 games of the season, Peppers has played just 65.3 percent of snaps in the past three games. The rest might have helped. He played perhaps his best game of the season on Sunday with 1.5 sacks and two forced fumbles
