Just a few short days after releasing Julius Peppers the decision has already came back to bite the Chicago Bears in the butt. With his signing by the Green Bay Packers, Peppers stayed in the division and will now be chasing Jay Cutler on Sundays instead of Aaron Rodgers.
Peppers said he is happy with the switch.
“The teams that have the good quarterbacks are the teams that win. That obviously factored into some of my decision making,” Peppers said. “I’m looking forward to playing with Aaron. As much as I disliked chasing him around, I’m excited to join him.”
The pass-rushing specialist also said he believes the Packers are ready to compete for the Lombardi Trophy.
“That’s the most important thing. I haven’t won a championship. That’s where my focus is. I feel like the team is set up to make a run and I feel I can help get it there,” Peppers said. “I have a lot left in the tank. I have a lot left to give, a lot left to offer. I want to show people I can still play the game at a high level.”
