The Green Bay Packers bolstered their defense with the signing of defensive end Julius Peppers. Peppers agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal which includes $7.5 million in guaranteed money and will pay him $8.5 million in the first year.
Peppers was set to receive a base salary of $13.9 million in 2014 and count $18.183 million against Chicago's salary cap which would've been very tough and expensive for the Bears to manage in their cap. He's sure to add some physicality to Green Bay's defensive line. Peppers led the Bears last season with 7.5 sacks and has collected 118.5 career sacks which is second in the league since 2002.
