For the first time as a Packer, a future Hall of Fame linebacker is representing Green Bay at the Pro Bowl.

Julius Peppers will head to Honolulu, Hawaii to take part in this week's Pro Bowl events, including the game Sunday night.

He takes over for Von Miller, who will instead play in Super Bowl 50.

This season, he has 10.5 sacks, 42 tackles, two forced fumbles, 19 pressures and eight quarterback hits.

It's his ninth Pro Bowl, with previous trips from 2004-06 and 2008-12 during previous stints with the Carolina Panthers and Chicago Bears.
