Chicago Bears Reportedly Interested In Former Green Bay Packers Safety Charlie Peprah

The Chicago Bears are still hoping to bolster their defensive backfield after injuries to safeties Chris Conte and Brandon Hardin last week, and according to Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune, they might be interested in former Green Bay Packers safety Charlie Peprah:

A league source told the Tribune the team is exploring the possibility of adding former Packer Charlie Peprah, who was released last month. The 5-foot-11, 203-pound Peprah started 14 games in 2011 and finished with five interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown. He intercepted Bears quarterback Josh McCown in the Packers' 35-21 win on Christmas night. The seventh-year veteran has 26 starts in 69 career games with the Packers and Falcons.

Acme Packing Company, SB Nation's Green Bay Packers blog, has information on why Peprah was released:

First and foremost, Peprah failed his physical. His knee injury kept him out of all of the team's off-season activities, and with it continuing to bother him, it appears the team wanted to move forward with their younger, healthier options. Peprah indicated that he was not expecting the move.
