Packers' Julius Peppers picked as Pro Bowl replacement
The 36-year-old Peppers is making his ninth trip to the Pro Bowl. He led Green Bay with 10 1/2 sacks in a season in which the Packers gave the veteran a little more rest and had a deep rotation of pass-rushing outside linebackers.
The Packers' Mike McCarthy and his assistants will coach one of the Pro Bowl teams this Sunday in Hawaii.
