Packers outside linebacker Julius Peppers was absent from organized team activities on Thursday, per Green Bay Press-Gazette. Peppers was sent home because of an apparent illness before practice started for the day.
Julius Peppers is scheduled to make $9.5 million for the Packers in 2015, and his salary cap impact will be over $12 million. Despite that, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he expected Peppers to return in 2015. Speaking to the media at the Indianapolis combine on Thursday, McCarthy praised the impact Peppers had on the team both on and off the field. He said he "definitely" expected to have Peppers back next season. "He looks great in green and gold," McCarthy said.
Packers defensive end Julius Peppers has no intentions of retiring after the playoffs and wants to play as long as his body permits, reports ESPN Wisconsin. With plans to definitely play in 2015, Peppers, 34, said if he does continue his career beyond that, he wants to do it in a Packers uniform. "If I can play until I'm 40, then I'll play until I'm 40," Peppers said. "Who knows? But whatever happens, I hope it's here." Peppers was able to play in all 16 games this season and registered 44 tackles and seven sacks. While Peppers would like to play beyond 2015, he knows that nothing in the NFL is guaranteed. "I don't know how much football I have left," Peppers said. "In reality, none of us know."
