Chicago Bears Still Making Moves- Sign Julius Peppers

In what has to be the most active Free Agency period in many years for the Chicago Bears, the biggest fish has been plucked out of the pond: Julius Peppers is a Bear.

Per Shefter's Twitter:

Filed to ESPN: Bears will announce it when they're ready, but the Julius Peppers deal is agreed to. He is a Bear.

Contract info: chicagobreakingsports.com

The deal is believed to be in the range of a six-year, $72 million contract with $40-45 million in the first three years, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. The numbers would descend after the first three years.

Stay tuned!
