Julius Peppers impressing new teammates

Julius Peppers is havingn his first OTAs with his new teammates and he has caught their eye. He has stood out from the crowd and showed off his physical abilities to his new team.

“You obviously notice his athletic ability right off the bat,” linebacker A.J. Hawk said, via Lori Nickel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “He’s 34 and runs like he’s 18. If ever there was a genetic freak put on this planet, it is Julius. He’s just a specimen. I have a ton of respect for how he works, too. What a great teammate just from Day 1. He’s a quiet guy that already knows what he is doing, so it is fun to be around a guy like him.

Peppers is going to be a huge playmaker for the Green Bay Packers defense. The team was looking to add a pass rusher onto the roster and they picked up one of the best available on the market. Peppers may be 34 years old, but he still has the skills to make plays in this league. The team just need to keep him healthy and he should be good to produce for the defense.
