Peprah told Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee he had been released and shared his disappointment Wednesday.
"I appreciate all the fans for their support," Peprah told Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Even the ones who weren't supportive, I appreciate them, too. That made me work even harder. Man, it was a dream come true to play for the Packers. Not many people can say they played for a historic franchise like this, and be a part of a Super Bowl team. It's hard to be happy about that right now, but I know, looking back at my career, five or six years later, I know it's something I'll be blessed to have been a part of."
"It's tough to leave your compadres," Peprah told Wilde. "You have a bond with those guys. Who knows? I could come back. I don't have any grudges."
