Charlie Peprah has returned in an official capacity with the Green Bay Packers.
He won’t be on the field, which is probably a good thing, but he does now have a paying job with the team again.
Peprah was officially hired as a scouting assistant on Thursday after spending a year as an intern.
Peprah played safety for the Packers from 2006-08 and 2010-11. He was a starter in his final two seasons with Green Bay and holds the distinction of being the guy most often referenced when people say, “Yeah, but the Packers won a Super Bowl with [insert name here] as a starter.”
The Packers unceremoniously released Peprah during the 2012 offseason.
Clearly, there were no hard feelings.
He isn’t the only guy to get a promotion on this fine day, either.
Jon-Eric Sullivan was promoted from Southwest area college scout to director of college scouting.
That position became open when the Packers promoted Brian Gutekunst to director of player personnel in March.
