Julius Peppers Signs with Packers

The Chicago Bears released defensive end Julius Peppers earlier this week. But Peppers will be back playing in Soldier Field this season–at least for one game.

The eight-time Pro Bowler signed a three-year deal with the Green Bay Packers on Saturday. The contract potentially pays Peppers $30 million over three years. Just pact guarantees just $7.5 million. Peppers, 34, enters his thirteenth NFL season.

Peppers compiled just seven sacks last season, his lowest total since 2007. His 118 career sacks puts him at eighteenth on the all-time list, one spot ahead of DeMarcus Ware, who signed with Denver this week, and six spots behind Jared Allen, who remains unsigned.
