Packers agree to terms on three-year deal with DE Julius Peppers

Packers agree to terms on three-year deal with DE Julius Peppers | NFL News and Notes | Scoop.it
Former Bears defensive end Julius Peppers is staying in the NFC North.
BeltwayBoy Sports's insight:

This is a smart move by the Packers b/c Julius Peppers will help to bolster their pass rush. The Packers are not that far away from being the top dog in the NFC and even though Peppers is in the twilight of his NFL career he still has enough left in the tank to help a contender trying to get over the hump in my opinion!

Report: WR Hakeem Nicks would sign a one-year free agent deal

Report: WR Hakeem Nicks would sign a one-year free agent deal | NFL News and Notes | Scoop.it
What's next for Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks? Perhaps a one-year prove-it deal.
BeltwayBoy Sports's insight:

A one-year deal is worth the risk with this guy and I hope to see the Washington Redskins in on this action because Hakeem Nicks can still play football at a very high level.

 

I know he's had a couple of tough seasons, but he's still young and will be highly motivated wherever he goes this offseason. He's had to deal with some injuries, but will be fully healthy going forward.
