The Packers have released Charlie Peprah, their starting strong safety from 2011. Peprah had 5 interceptions last year, but struggled against the run and didn’t cover well overall. He surrendered a completion percentage of 66.7%, 9.1 YPA, and 4 touchdowns. He was ProFootballFocus’ 71st rated safety out of 86.

To replace him, the Packers will move Charles Woodson to strong safety in base packages and 2011 undrafted free agent MD Jennings, who the Packers are very high on, will play strong safety in sub packages, when Woodson continues to play the slot, which he’s done for years. Sam Shields and rookie 2nd round pick Casey Hayward will compete for Woodson’s vacated starting job at cornerback opposite Tramon Williams.
