by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

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' Julius Peppers hopes to play beyond 2015
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

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."

Julius Peppers yearns to follow success of older stars
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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.
