    being stationed in north carolina watch him through college days watch panther games as well, Though been bear fan all my life was happy to see him become a bear, really never like high price he commanded but at time something had be done JA surely was;t gonna draft a elite pass rusher. Still great player, salary just to much for us to more forward with. But this pains me to No end to see him join packers, think I will now set fire to my peppers jesery just so it doessn't taint any of the others.

    That's what I was thinking :-(
    He may take plays off. He may take games off. But he'll come to play against the Bears.

    He could but Bushrod and Slaussen can limit him most likely. He will get neutralized esp. if they have no one else just like us last season.

    That sounds just like Mongo awesome. Now do you think we can get the fudge packers to take Urlacher?
    Also ,the one that should really be pissed is Raji. If Pepp is getting more than him that shows some serious in your face loyalty by the fudge pac to Raji.

    Actually, the Packers offered him like $54 million over 4 years and he turned it down. He fucked himself over on this one.

    Well, according to NFL.com this is one of the best FA singings so far.

    Julius Peppers to the Packers

    There's a lot to like here. Peppers is flexible enough to play multiple positions on the defensive line, giving Green Bay greater flexibility. You can line him up as a 3-4 defensive end, a 4-3 defensive end or tackle or stand him up as a linebacker. Peppers will reportedly make $8.5 million in 2013, a reasonable gamble for a Packers defense that needs help.

    It's also nice to see general manager Ted Thompson taking a swing at finding a free-agent value. His moves to get Ryan Pickett and Charles Woodson last decade were key in establishing the Packers' eventual championship run.

    Peppers prosper in his time
    Well he may and he may decline
    Did it matter? does it now?
    Julius would answer if he only knew how

    Did he doubt or did he try?
    Answers aplenty in the bye and bye
    Talk about your plenty, talk about your ills
    One man gathers what another man spills

    Julius Peppers will remain
    All he's lost he shall regain
    Seashore washed by the suds and the foam
    Been in the NFL long he's got to calling it home

    I heard on the radio that the way the contract is structured, the cap hit to the Packers is around 3 mil, and that the contract is year-to-year. If that's true, it's a low-risk deal for Green Bay, and has potential for a pretty good upside. So, why couldn't we get something like that done?

    Yeah you're right, there's a pretty big difference between taking the deal that the packers offered him when he currently didn't have anything better in front of him, compared to trying to get him to take that offer when he's actually got an $18m contract in front of him.
