The Green Bay Packers have re-signed safety Charlie Peprah. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the signing Friday.
Peprah played in 14 games for Green Bay in 2010, starting a career-high 11 contests at strong safety. He recorded career highs in tackles (64), interceptions (two) and passes defensed (seven). Peprah registered 26 tackles (23 solo) in the postseason, good for second on the team, and led the Packers with 10 tackles in Super Bowl XLV vs. Pittsburgh.
Peprah entered the NFL as a fifth-round draft choice with the N.Y. Giants in 2006. He was claimed off waivers by Green Bay in September 2006, and went on to appear in 37 games for the Packers over the next three seasons. Peprah played in two contests with Atlanta in 2009 before re-signing with Green Bay as a free agent in April 2010.
