Reserve cornerback

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers defence has gotten a big jolt from a big name: Eight-time Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers. The ex-Carolina Panthers and Chicago Bears defensive end signed a three-year deal with the Packers on Saturday morning, bringing one of the NFLs best pass-rushers to a team that has historically avoided major free-agent splashes. The move was first reported by ESPN. Peppers agent, Carl Carey, posted photos to his Twitter account of Peppers signing the deal and standing on the still-frozen tundra of Lambeau Field before the team announced it officially later in the day. The Packers would not make Peppers available to media. "I havent won a championship," Peppers told the Packers website. "Thats where my focus is. I feel like the team is set up to make a run and I feel I can help get it there." Peppers went to the Super Bowl in 2003 with the Panthers, losing to the New England Patriots. The 34-year-old Peppers was released Tuesday by the Bears in a cost-cutting move. Peppers would have counted $18.183 million against Chicagos salary cap this season and had a base salary of $13 million. Peppers played in all 64 of the Bears games the past four seasons, posting 37.5 sacks. His 7.5 sacks last season were his fewest since a career-low 2.5 sacks in 2007, but he still would have led the Packers in that category in 2012. In Green Bay, Peppers is reunited with Mike Trgovac, who coached him for his first seven seasons in Carolina. Trgovac, the Packers defensive line coach, was Peppers defensive line coach as a rookie in 2002 and his defensive co-ordinator from 2003 through 2008. Pink Air Jordan 2 Retro .

And rest hardly led to rust for the two-time defending NBA champions.FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- In practice Thursday, Atlanta Falcons wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie was barking at the new guy like he knows him. He does. One day after losing the NFLs leading receiver, Julio Jones, to a season-ending foot fracture, Atlanta signed Brian Robiskie -- the coachs son. The scuffling Falcons (1-4) hope that the younger Robiskie -- who practiced in 2011 under Atlanta offensive co-ordinator Dirk Koetter when he held that job in Jacksonville -- can shore up the beleagured receiving corps. Four-time Pro Bowl wideout Roddy White has just 14 receptions, struggling since the preseason with a high ankle sprain. He left Monday nights loss to the Jets with a hamstring injury and is no lock for Atlantas next game, Oct. 20 against the Bucs. Although the 6-foot-4, 212-pound Robiskie has bounced around in the NFL since the Cleveland Browns drafted him in the second round in 2009, Atlanta head coach Mike Smith and the staff hope his familiarity with coaches helps him get up to speed quickly. "Brian has . . . three or four years of experience, knows our offence, knows our verbiage," Smith said. "I know that father and son always speak. Im sure they kind of speak the same language." Terry Robiskie has work to do, and as the Falcons held a rare Thursday bye-week practice, he was going at it. He wasnt always pleasant when addressing his son. "Thats nothing," said Brian Robiskie, who had been out of football since the Detroit Lions released him in June. "Hes a tough guy. Thats how he is, and Im sure if you ask any of the other receivers they would tell you the same thing. He wants a lot out of his players." The younger Robiskie was the only new player Thursday, but there will be many moving parts for the Falcons. With Jones and his 41 receptions gone and White out of practice all week, Atlanta slot receiver Harry Douglas will move into the starting lineup. Whether he returns to the slot in three-receiver formations remains to be seen. "This is a unique situation that were dealing with right now, and youve got to be multiple," Smith said. "Weve got to identify what guys can do, and put them in the best spots by formation and by personnel." The Falcons may also use rookie tight end Levine Toilolo more in conjunction with Tony Gonzalez for two-tight end formations..dddddddddddd "Hes going to be a very big threat, especially in the red zone," Smith said of the 6-8 Toilolo. "Yes, that would be an option." At wide receiver, NFL neophytes Drew Davis and/or Kevin Cone may see their roles increase, and that could make two of the Falcons most dependable special teamers available for less duty on punt and kickoff squads. Cone, an undrafted third-year pro, got his first NFL reception Monday after Jones left. Davis, undrafted last year, made all four of his NFL catches as a rookie in 2012. "Thats something thats overlooked," Smith said. "Drew Davis has been good on special teams for us, and Kevin Cone. (The injury situation) is going to not only affect what we do on offence, its going to affect what we do on special teams." Special teams could be further impacted if coaches opt not to use Douglas in his usual punt returner spot to save wear-and-tear. Reserve cornerback Robert McClain would be a top candidate for that spot. Smith said, "Thats definitely on the table for discussion." Brian Robiskie doesnt have to make all these decisions, yet he will be busy over the next 10 days trying to get ready to help against Tampa Bay. . He was released by the Browns during the 2011 season after making 39 catches for 441 yards and three touchdowns in 31 games, including 14 starts. The former Ohio State standout was quickly claimed off waivers by the Jaguars, but did not play for Jacksonville in 2011 when he was injured. The Jags released him before the 2012 season, and after the Lions signed him at midseason, Robiskie caught four passes for 44 yards and a touchdown while playing in six games for Detroit. Robiskie said after Thursdays practice hell wait to answer whether working with his dad will expedite his learning curve. "If you ask me in a couple more days, Ill let you know," he said. "The first day went well. Its going take me however long to get back into the swing of things, but after being out (of the game) its exciting for me." Notes: Running back Stephen Jackson, who has missed the last three-plus games with a hamstring injury, did not practice Thursday. He continued working with athletic trainers. "We need to get Stephen back as quickly as we can," Smith said. . . . The Falcons will not practice Friday-Monday.
