Julius Peppers has always been a freak of nature, but his coaches feel he still has it.
“Charles Woodson played pretty well at 34,” Daniels said. “Julius Peppers is by every means of the word a ‘freak of nature.’ I don’t think age is going to affect him too much. And he’s got some pretty good players lined up with him. Our front seven is very good. When you add the element of Julius Peppers to that. The sky’s the limit in my opinion.”
Green Bay signed Peppers to a three-year deal worth $30 million with coach Mike McCarthy saying the veteran will serve an “elephant” role in the defense. He’ll stand up as a linebacker and play down as a defensive line.
Did you know: When Julius Peppers decided to play football rather than basketball at UNC where he was averaging 7.1 points and 4.0 rebounds, and led the Tar Heels in field goal percentage (.643)? Peppers had to rededicate himself to football. Knowing that pro teams wanted to see more bulk on his 6-6 frame, he added 15 pounds of muscle. Meanwhile, he didn’t lose any of his quickness or flexibility. Indeed, his time in the 40-yard dash remained at 4.5 seconds, and his vertical leap stayed at nearly 38 inches.
His forty time might have slowed down a little bit; as well as his production, but if the Packers utilize him correctly he could be a terror in the NFC North.
