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:

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.

More linkage:

And another link, just for the heck of it.

First Manumaleuna, then Taylor, and now Peppers... will a FS be next?

Stay tuned!
