Packers DC Dom Capers confirms Julius Peppers will "play at a number of different spots."

"We have all the defenses you can have," Capers said. That's not necessarily a good thing. With Clay Matthews (thumb) and Nick Perry (undisclosed) both sidelined, Peppers spent Thursday's OTAs session at outside linebacker. The Pack are planning to utilize Peppers as an "elephant" rusher. That likely means he'll line up at end in Green Bay's base defense, rush from the interior in sub-packages and mix in snaps at outside linebacker.
