    Packers' Julius Peppers hopes to play beyond 2015

    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.

    Julius Peppers yearns to follow success of older stars

    Packers linebacker Julius Peppers will turn 35 before the Super Bowl, but has taken comfort in recent football history. Several premier players continued to rack up sacks at an advanced age. Among them were Reggie White, who totaled 16 sacks at age 37 and Michael Strahan, who piled up 11 1/2 at 34. Bruce Smith, the all-time leading sacker in the NFL, continued to thrive into his late 30s. "By no means am I comparing myself to those guys, but you do take a look at those lists," Peppers told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "It's not impossible. It's not impossible to have great seasons at a more mature age. People have done it." Peppers managed seven sacks last year, which matched a career-low. He has totaled double figures in eight of his 12 seasons.

    Scout: Julius Peppers 'just a freak of nature'

    Packers defensive end Julius Peppers is 34, and he said asking about his age is a "fair question," reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. But a scout told the paper that age doesn't apply with Peppers. "I was told by one of our personnel guys that used to be with Peppers that he is just a freak of nature," the scout said. "That his body type may be like he's five years younger. But we won't see that in the preseason." Peppers played five snaps at end and five at outside linebacker in the preseason opener. He hopes to play a little more Saturday at St. Louis. Peppers intends to let the film show whether he can still make an impact. "I'm not really going to get into too much discussing what I can and can't do," he said. "I'm going to let the film speak for it."

    Teammate: Julius Peppers 'a freak of nature'

    Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels described his new teammate, 34-year-old Julius Peppers, as "a freak of nature." "Charles Woodson played pretty well at 34," Daniels told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "Julius Peppers is by every means of the word a 'freak of nature.' I don't think age is going to affect him too much. And he's got some pretty good players lined up with him. Our front seven is very good. When you add the element of Julius Peppers to that. The sky's the limit in my opinion."Peppers signed a three-year contract with the Packers and will rotate between the defensive line and linebacker.
