As The Packers Sign Julius Peppers, The Pool Of Quality NFL Free Agents Dwindles To 40

  • Jake O'Donnell

What’s with the NFC North and interdivisional defections? Lot’s of trolling going on around those lakes (not a fishing pun). The Packers hooked the 34-year-old defensive end to a three-year, 30 million dollar deal. If you’re a Cowboys fan, cheer up — there are more fish in the sea.

Seriously, capable d-linemen are still out there, so keep the lines out there — you’ll catch something soon.

We assume all the guys listed below will be signed by the 2014 NFL Draft on May 8th, or least the beginning of OTA’s around June.
