Julius Peppers NFL Season Preview

Julius Peppers enters the 11th season of his NFL career and his third year with the Chicago Bears. Peppers is coming off an eleven and half sack season and his seventh season with double digit sacks. Talent has never been the issue with Peppers, who is a seven time Pro Bowler, but critics have questioned his effort at times.

The Bears limited Peppers play this preseason as a precautionary measure. He is one of the most durable defensive lineman in the NFL. In ten full seasons Peppers has only missed six games, four of which came from a drug suspension in his rookie year. He is expected to be the same dominant defensive end he has been his entire career and has shown no signs of slowing down.

If the Bears can stay healthy and get consistent play on the offensive side of the ball, they should compete with the Green Bay Packers for the NFC North title and Peppers should have yet another Pro Bowl season.
