Peppers made three tackles (zero solo), recorded a half sack, and returned an interception for a touchdown in Thursday's victory over the Vikings.

Peppers had not done much as an IDP prior to Thursday's game, but the pick-six surely provided a nice boost to those that started him in Week 5. Through five games with the Packers Peppers has tallied 15 tackles (eight solo), 1.5 sacks, one fumble recovery, one interception, and three pass deflections.

Peppers tallied four tackles (three solo) in Thursday's loss to the Seahawks.

Peppers was credited with one quarterback hit Thursday, but he was unable to record a sack in his Packers debut. Peppers is playing linebacker this season after playing with his hand down in Chicago, so he figures to improve upon last season's total of 45 combined tackles.

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.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel suggests Julius Peppers' "elephant" role will consist of lining up at end in Green Bay's base defense, rushing from the interior in sub-packages, and mixing in snaps at outside linebacker.

We've slotted Peppers at end on our depth charts because we think he'll play there the most. Clay Matthews and Nick Perry still figure to be the Packers' primary outside linebackers, with Peppers and Datone Jones at end, and B.J. Raji at nose tackle. Mike Neal, Mike Daniels, and Jerel Worthy will be the top front-seven reserves. Talent can no longer be DC Dom Capers' excuse on defense.

Packers signed Julius Peppers, formerly of the Bears, to a three-year deal.

Three years is a long commitment for a 34-year-old, but there is likely little, if any, guaranteed money past 2014. Peppers still has some juice left in the tank and could flourish in a situational pass-rushing role in Green Bay. The eight-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro has 119 career sacks and 40 forced fumbles in his career.

Bears released RE Julius Peppers.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bears are shopping RE Julius Peppers for trade.

It's the likely certain precursor to Peppers' release. Peppers' 2014 salary cap number is nearly $20 million, and Chicago needs that space to be active in free agency as well as sign its rookie class. At this point, GM Phil Emery would probably accept a late seventh-round pick for Peppers, although he won't even get that. Expect Peppers to be dumped by Tuesday afternoon.
