Summary: Peprah, who was signed Oct. 24, was still recovering from a knee injury and was inactive for the first two games after joining the club. But he started Nov. 11 at Philadelphia and had two tackles and broke up one pass. He played well at times, including getting an interception against Washington on Nov. 22, but he missed three more games after that with a foot injury.
Why keep him: Peprah can play both safety positions, but he's better suited at strong safety. He's a good tackler and is dependable in pass coverage.
Why let him go: Eric Frampton and Matt Johnson might be valued more than Peprah in the eyes of the coaching staff. While Peprah is a physical presence, his health raises some concerns about his short-term future.
Best guess: Peprah might thrive under the new 4-3 scheme as a physical safety against the run. Bring him back.
