Julius Peppers also prolific blocker — kick blocker

The ability to sack the quarterback is what defines Julius Peppers as an extremely well-paid opponent to be feared. But like a master guitarist who also plays the keyboard, Peppers brings something else to the band. His hidden value comes in his ability to block kicks. In fact, since he came into the league in 2002, Peppers has nine career blocks. The only player in the NFL with more over that time period is the Browns' Shaun Rogers, who has 12. (Chicago Tribune)
