Matthews: 'I'm excited' about Peppers, but may miss OTAs

If Clay Matthews is rushing the passer from one side of the Green Bay Packers' defense and Julius Peppers from the other, who will opponents double team?

Packers 'stoked' about defensive potential with Peppers

It didn't take long for Jarrett Bush to notice Julius Peppers when the future Green Bay Packers cornerback first arrived at training camp with the Carolina Panthers in 2006.

Clay Matthews excited about Peppers signing

Julius Peppers Will Wear Number 56 with Packers

Questions about his official position have been mostly put to rest today with the announcement of his number selection. The Packers' newest big-name addition, Julius Peppers, has finally chosen the number he will wear with his new team for the 2014 season (and possibly beyond). The number comes as somewhat of a surprise, as many expected Peppers to stay in the 90s, since he wore 90 for his entire career in Carolina and Chicago. Instead, the number selection confirms that the Packers view Peppers primarily as an outside linebacker, as he will wear a number more typically given to a player in...

Dave Gettleman believes Panthers have better shot at retaining Greg Hardy

Dave Gettleman believes Panthers have better shot at retaining Greg Hardy

Signing the fan-favorite to a long-term deal would mend a lot of fences. There's a lot of ill will towards general manager Dave Gettleman because of a perception he's hurting the Panthers, but finding a way to re-sign Greg Hardy to a long term deal would do a lot to win back some public support. Gettleman told Alex Marvez of Fox Sports that the chances of retaining Hardy are greater now the free agent market has settled and the organization has a better understanding of future cap space. It's a similar approach to how the Panthers handled Julius Peppers in 2009, but with an important...

David Bakhtiari vs. Jared Allen: Previewing Packers-Bears in 2014

We look back at the 2013 season to see what we can learn about the Packers' left tackle of the future and how he matches up with the Chicago Bears' newest pass-rushing specialist. By now you have probably heard the news about the latest pass-rush specialist who signed with a division rival of his old NFC North team. No, I'm not talking about Julius Peppers right now. Instead, I'm talking about the newest Chicago Bears defensive end, Jared Allen. Allen signed a four-year deal worth $32 million overall and $15.5 million guaranteed to become a Bear for the foreseeable future. Also in the...
