Voted in as a first alternate, Peppers will replace the Super Bowl bound Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.
Peppers totaled 11 sacks in 2011, five tackles-for-loss, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. The 32-year-old is currently tied for third most sacks (100) in the NFL since he was drafted in 2002 by the Carolina Panthers.
