Packers LB Peppers selected to the Pro Bowl

Posted Jan 25, 2016

This is Peppers' ninth trip to the Pro Bowl

Green Bay Packers LB Julius Peppers has been added to the Pro Bowl roster, the league announced today. He replaces Denver Broncos LB Von Miller, who is unable to participate due to advancing to the Super Bowl.

This is Peppers' ninth trip to the Pro Bowl (2004-06, 2008-12) and first as a member of the Packers. He recorded 10.5 sacks (team high), 42 tackles (31 solo), two forced fumbles (tied for team lead), eight QB hits and 19 pressures (No. 3 on the team) during the 2015 regular season. It marked his ninth season with 10-plus sacks, which tied John Randle for the fourth-most 10-sack seasons since 1982 (Bruce Smith, 13 / Reggie White, 12 / Kevin Greene, 10). With 136.0 career sacks, Peppers is tied with Jared Allen for the most sacks among active players (136.0) and the ninth most in NFL history (since 1982).
