Would Julius Peppers be here if Gaines Adams still was?

Now I understand that the unexpected death of Gaines Adams was an unfortunate, incredibly sad event to his family, friends, and the organization.  However, just looking at the loss of Gaines Adams in purely a football aspect, did it open the door for Chicago to bring in Julius PeppersJerry Angelo, Lovie Smith, and the rest of the Bears organization was very high on Gaines entering this season and expected him to start and excel.  He and Peppers play the same position.  It doesn't seem realistic to think Angelo would have went out and spent big money on a player when they already traded their highest pick entering this off-season on that same position.  According to an article i found, when an NFL player dies while still under contract, the team  has no obligation to pay the remainder of his contract, which gave the Bears some extra money to spend this off-season.  So i ask the hypothetical question, would the Bears be better off entering the season with Gaines Adams and the 91.5 million dollars that could have been spent on other needs or Julius Peppers?
