RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Perry played in just 11 games for the Packers in 2013, recording 28 tackles (20 solo) along with four sacks while missing five games with various injuries. The 2012 first-round draft pick has struggled to stay on the field for the Packers, also playing in only six games in his rookie season before suffering a torn ACL. Since Perry hasn’t filled the pass-rushing role opposite Clay Matthews as the team had hoped, the Packers brought in Julius Peppers in the offseason to fill the void. The move will impact Perry directly, as Peppers will likely slide into the outside linebacker slot while Perry will be largely relegated to backup duties. His numbers for 2014 should decline further from the first two seasons, but with Peppers playing the “elephant” spot for the Packers, consisting of him playing in multiple positions, Perry could still see the field in certain packages.
Perry will line up as a starter at outside linebacker opposite Clay Matthews. He played in six games last season, before being placed on injured reserve with wrist and knee injuries. He could provide a strong pass-rushing presence with attention focused on Matthews.
The 2012 first round draft pick is expected to start at outside linebacker opposite Clay Matthews. In 2011, the Packers' defense struggled, and much of that blame fell on the shoulders of those playing the outside linebacker role that Perry is stepping into. With many defenses likely to key in on Matthews, Perry should have plenty of opportunities to make his mark as a force in the pass rush.
