Julius Peppers Takes Part in Packers' Voluntary Offseason Program

The Packers offseason workouts are not mandatory, but Julius Peppers used the opportunity to make his first appearance with his new team. 

Peppers was signed by the Packers in March after he was released by the Bears. Peppers has 557 total career tackles and 118.5 sacks but will be transitioning to a new role with the Packers. Previously used to playing in a 4-3 scheme as an end, the Packers will use Peppers as a hybrid player on the line and as an outside linebacker.

Awesome! No bonus cash incentives paid to him so this is all his own desire to get acclimated with his new teammates and coaches, plus work out... again, awesome news indeed.

He's actually here to ride the Zippin Pippin. Anything else is coincidental.

In the NFL today, there is no offseason. Working out in the structured environment of the team facility is preferable but vets know what they need to do to get ready on their own.

But every vet should know that football is a team game. Getting to know your new teammates should be a top priority for any FA that changes teams. Good for Peppers that he gets that.
