Julius Peppers is a Chicago Bear

The deal is done, and the biggest free agent of the 2010 off-season is going to Chicago: Julius Peppers is a Bear.

Although the team hasn’t formally announced it yet, ESPN reports that a six-year deal is done. Adam Schefter reported that the Bears are expected to pay Peppers $40 million in the first three years.

The Bears will be expecting big things from Peppers, who has 81 sacks
in his NFL career, which began in 2002. That’s the third-most in the
NFL during that time, behind only Jason Taylor and Dwight Freeney.

For the Bears (who also signed Brandon Manumaleuna and Chester Taylor on a huge first day of free agency), it’s a sign that they’re serious about winning, and winning now. After the disaster that was the Bears’ 2009 season, that’s a sign the fans of Chicago needed to see.

    Bad news for Lord Favre

  3. Caldon says: Mar 5, 2010 3:17 PM

    This is a front office staff that know they will be fired if they don’t win big this year and are looking very desperate.

  5. RichattheLake says: Mar 5, 2010 3:18 PM

    But thru it all Da Bears still have a questionable O-line & sub-par wide receivers right?
    Love ‘em, but that’s the facts.

  6. patsfanlisa says: Mar 5, 2010 3:18 PM

    Did they get a QB, too? Cuz they ain’t going anywhere with Cutler leading the helm.

  7. RIP__21 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:18 PM

    CHA-CHING!

  8. eaglelover1 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:19 PM

    I thought Peppers was more interested in winning a championship? I guess winning the FA Bowl is enough for him.

  9. DaBears34 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:19 PM

    great job Bears…keep up the good work!

  10. halestorm74 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:20 PM

    Mckinne you better do some work this offseason.

  11. Broncos33 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:20 PM

    Correction:
    After the disaster that was “Cutler”, there is no hope for the fans of Chicago.

  12. hockuli's bicep says: Mar 5, 2010 3:21 PM

    Mckinnie just peed a little again.
    (Florio, best line of the day, still laughung about it)

  13. skinsforlife35 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:21 PM

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Thank you guys for saving us money and saving us making a huge mistake 2 years in a row. Cutler last year, and now peppers this year!! You guys are on a roll…. What is the average age for your team thus far?? Bringing in chester taylor, and now Peppers…. wow, where’s the retirement home??

  14. bobbyyyd says: Mar 5, 2010 3:21 PM

    hahaha bears suck.. Dont the redskins do this every season. Signing big name free agents for way to much $ is dumb. The NFL is getting younger and more teams are trying to sign good players for a smaller price. Than a veteran for way to much money. The bears will finish behind the packers and vikings once again this season. Hello 7-9

  15. Johnson says: Mar 5, 2010 3:22 PM

    paying someone a QBs salary when they are not a QB is not the way to go.

  16. TigerPlanck says: Mar 5, 2010 3:23 PM

    Julius Peppers will crumble under the Chicago media. He does not thrive under pressure, and when he doesn’t perform, he will crumble under pressure. Charlotte and the Carolinas protected him, left him alone, allowed him to go out in public and not be bothered. Once he realizes that his private life will be all over Jay Mariotti’s desk, he will crumble. The guy has issues around motiviation. He will show up big against the Lions and Browns and Bucs…..but when it is crunch time, he will get lost.

  17. december says: Mar 5, 2010 3:23 PM

    Ah he got his money. Now as a true bear, he’s just about ready to hibernate.

  18. Lancane says: Mar 5, 2010 3:23 PM

    I have never really been a Bears fan, but I am starting to like what I see from them. Cutler was a great move, sorry Denver but Orton is not all that and a bag of chips! Add in their fierceness to improve on day one of Free Agency this year. If they can get Cutler a couple solid receivers, the winds of the NFC North could be changing in a big way.

  19. LarryBird18 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:23 PM

    haha throwing out millions to old players that are past their prime! along with having no draft picks!
    now thats building for the future baby!

  20. TheSolution says: Mar 5, 2010 3:23 PM

    The Bears still suck.
    Their Offense is still horrid.
    Cutler is a bum.
    Peppers will slack off once they start losing.

  21. scalper46 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:24 PM

    Good Luck with Pep. When he decides to play he is awesome. Its the other 12 or so games you have to worry about, he might as well be passing out drinks on the sideline. He didn’t show jack in Carolina this year until the youngster Beason called him out. I for one am glad he’s gone from here.

  22. Emoney says: Mar 5, 2010 3:25 PM

    He would of had a better chance of winning had he stayed with the Panthers.

  23. Mattchew182 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:25 PM

    It is good to see them trying and making moves. After the biggest move of the offseason last year getting Cutler we now have Peppers. Bryant Mckinnie better not skip anymore practices he’s gonna need all the help he can get. And Favre might wanna get a back that can block cause we got Chester now. Too bad we can’t help our O Line in free agency although Manumaluena will be pretty nasty as a blocker. GO BEARS!!!

  24. Catamount says: Mar 5, 2010 3:26 PM

    THe idiot turned down $14 million per for $11 million +. Smooth.

  25. GBISFULLOFFATTIES says: Mar 5, 2010 3:27 PM

    Well this should allow them to be on top of the Lions next year.
    Vikings
    Packers
    Bears
    Lions

  26. FumbleNuts says: Mar 5, 2010 3:28 PM

    This is a thought and ONLY a thought, if da’ Bears can get some O-line help……… they could be a very decent team going forward.

  27. superbowl says: Mar 5, 2010 3:28 PM

    in related news….
    Clifton and Tausher are expecting a much larger pay increase to stay in that back water burgh known as Green Bay

  28. axeman54jt says: Mar 5, 2010 3:28 PM

    so who are they gonna draft in a month..? oh i forgot they dont have a first or second pick hahahahhahahahah

  29. TiceWasBetter says: Mar 5, 2010 3:29 PM

    So Aaron Rodgers gets to get the snot knocked out of him by Jared Allen, Vanden Bosch AND Peppers? Ouch.

  30. Charlie Wood says: Mar 5, 2010 3:30 PM

    Maybe this will solidify Brent’s decision to retired. McKinnie may have peed himself- but Favre just shat in his Wranglers.

  31. shaggytoodle says: Mar 5, 2010 3:30 PM

    He thought it was frustrating and rough when Delhomme threw picks. Another cool thing is this will put to end the debate about people who say you just need FA to build through, no drafting neccesary. So after this season and the Bears are about 8-8 and have to “try again” in 3-5 years when they have huge cap numbers on Cutler and Peppers they will have to cut them and realize, they need to build through the draft. The Bears have to learn how to draft well before they can do that though, why else do they get rid of all those picks for Cutler, and have to sign all these FAs they put themselves in this spot.

  32. raybin says: Mar 5, 2010 3:31 PM

    Regarding the state of the Bears front office, I’m reminded of the line from “Super Troopers”:
    “Desperation is a stinky cologne”
    That being said, there’s no question Peppers will be a huge help and if the owner is willing to cough up that much dough, then go for it. But their signings of Peppers & Taylor and their pursuit of Rolle shows they know they don’t have the time to build a team, they need to create one out of thin air.
    Ask Dan Snyder or Al Davis how well that works.

    Its also a sign that a large market team with a lot of money is taking advantage of the uncapped year. Say goodbye to competitive balance. A sad day for football fans.

  35. Chapnasty2 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:32 PM

    If they dont upgrade their OL none of it will matter. However they did get to the superbowl behind Grossman and a terrible offense. Defense did it for them that year like the Steelers did for Fat Ben.

  36. boo7382 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:32 PM

    as a panthers fan, i see that peppers has just proved himself as greedy as hell. what a liar. all this b.s. about oo i wanna go to a team who is superbowl caliber where i can win a ring…WRONG u showed us that today big boy. u just want money for ur grubby little hands. i hope u get destroyed in chicago for lack of effort. thanks for all the years of playing on 45% of the downs. when ur good, ur DAMN good, but most of the time ur just lazy. no one, not even urself deserves that much $ to play football. hes 30. and theres a looming lockout in 2012. soo ur gonna get 1 (maybe) good year out of him if ur lucky..and thats all for 40 mill. wow chicago. wow. good luck going to the sb.

  37. ToniGoSaintsRou says: Mar 5, 2010 3:32 PM

    Can somebody say SCAM!! $40Million??!!! Yea, okay….who’s writin’ Chicago’s checks…they can put my name on one since they’re in such a good mood!!

    skinsforlife35
    LOL, enjoy REX GROSSMAN!!!!! Peppers for 12mil/yr a lot cheaper than what was expected…thanks for not driving up the price for Peppers! Chester Taylor, 4 years/12.5 mil, 7mil first year(uncapped), break it down, that’s $1.83mil/yr during years 2, 3, and 4.
    Jason Campbell and Rex Grossman…too hilarious

  40. prophet of the light says: Mar 5, 2010 3:36 PM

    If the 14 million a year that was reportedly offered by Carolina was really offered… then WOW.
    Then again, it might have had 20 million less attached in guaranteed money.

  41. edvedder10 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:38 PM

    Bears have extra money to spend this year, they have no first round pick, no 2nd round pick(Cutler, skins fans, you would have cutler but Orton>Campbell), and the untimely death of Gaines Adams lead to this signing. The Bears won’t be signing free agents like this every year.

  42. spdy3450 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:39 PM

    Eaglesarethebest ur an idiot! Nuff said.
    Nice pick ups for chi-town but with we need an O-line bad. The wideouts need upgrading too. Overall I gotta be happy though da bears had a lot of holes to fill and it looks like at least a few of those holes have been now.

  43. mzezulak says: Mar 5, 2010 3:39 PM

    I thought Danny said if we want him we’ll get him? Yet he came in second and folded no doubt after learning Peppers would play cheaper in Chicago than in the elephant graveyard Washington

  44. immortus00 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:40 PM

    Peppers and Vanden Bosch in the North? Good news for Bryant McKinnie, he doesn’t have to worry about that pesky Pro-Bowl any more. Unless the NFL decides to allow pipes on the field.
    Overrated and overmatched.

  45. SoCalSean says: Mar 5, 2010 3:42 PM

    That’s 40 Million for a total of 6 games where he actually does something.. That’s if he keeps his current average of 2 games a year

  46. Mattchew182 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:42 PM

    Not that they are the same player they aren’t but Reggie White was 32 when he went to the Packers and he dominated for 6 years. Peppers contract has guaranteed money the first 3 years of the deal so if at 34 Peppers slows down they can cut him. I don’t know what will happen in the NFC but I know we will be much better than the Redskins who gave Haynesworth 100 million to now play nose tackle in a 3-4 with a bunch of guys who have never played that system. And a QB you have thrown under the bus and backed over about 10 times in the last 2 years. Shanahan won’t be enough to save you. And I’d take Chester Taylor over Portis any day of the week. You’d cut him now if he didn’t have guaranteed money in his contract in what the 4th or 5th year of the deal. Cutler will be better without Pace and with a real offensive coordinator.

  47. MnMike says: Mar 5, 2010 3:42 PM

    Good to see them spending..our division will be competitive..with the exception of the Puckers..the Bears and Lions both improved..should be fun…out of curiosity though, if a hard cap does come back, do the Bears have to hold a fire sale to get back under?

  48. Opie says: Mar 5, 2010 3:46 PM

    So, then the “other” option that wasn’t explored in a post about Peppers turning down the Panthers due to his agent being tampered with and them knowing their was more money elsewhere could turn out to be bullshit?!?
    But, that was from a “source with knowledge of the blah, blah, blah….”
    Those sources suck ass, I hope you’re not buying them beer or dinner or giving them a gratuitous reach around…. { :)

  49. Johnnyb612 says: Mar 5, 2010 3:47 PM

    Wow! I hope TT has a good plan for the o-line now that the Packers are going to lose Clifton. Looks like the NFC north could be tough this year.

  50. mwcarolina says: Mar 5, 2010 3:48 PM

    first off Rex Grossman will not be in Washington, once they look at him and vomit, they will leave. 2nd, Peppers being a Bear is good, if he tries hard, but if he doesn’t Bears won’t like him, as for Vanden Boch in Detroit, time will tell, was he only good because of Haynesworth?? or was it the coaching?? i don’t think he’s as good a pass rusher as Peppers and Allen.

  51. shadowGM says: Mar 5, 2010 3:51 PM

    Nice. At least I can stomach these guys winning the division and not those purple queens. Hope Favre returns to retire due to injury mid season. At least the North finally has an A-List talent at DE (and…yes. that’s a huge shot at Mangina Allen in Stinkytown)
    So Tommie Harris is a draft day trade, huh? Let the speculation begin…
    As for Green Bay, the gaultlet has been thrown down. What’s the response? Probably nothing, IMO. Thompson continues his “turtle” act and does nothing in response. Because it’s not like 1/3 of the defense needs replacing, or that they may need to actually get decent linemen to keep Rodgers upright (or not allow half asses like Allen and Odom get 4 sacks a game). Let’s do something here.

  52. Sasquatch says: Mar 5, 2010 3:53 PM

    At this rate the Bears are going to sign everybody. When do they announce the Kampman acquisition?

  53. coz says: Mar 5, 2010 4:01 PM

    peppers is not worth the money

  54. purpleguy says: Mar 5, 2010 4:03 PM

    I just hope we don’t have to go through another hype-filled offseason of Bears as NFCN champs again like last year. It’s bad enough listening to the delusional cheesers every off-season.

    Its also a sign that a large market team with a lot of money is taking advantage of the uncapped year. Say goodbye to competitive balance. A sad day for football fans
    The Bears making a big splash in Free Agency this year isn’t about them being a big market team versus a smaller market. It’s about them not having a 1st or 2nd round pick this year. Those two picks are slotted in the Rookie Salary Pool and as the Bears sucked last year, their slotting would have demanded pretty substantial salaries. All the Bears did was take the rookie pool salary they otherwise would have spent and added it to their FA allotment . . . and they know getting better through the draft for the 2010 season will be near impossible with their highest pick coming in the 3rd round.
    Besides Detroit is throwing around mad money also, and I don’t think the Lions would consider themselves a large market team. Desperate teams, take desperate measures to try and getting better; but it becomes a downward spiral. At least the Bears are throwing their money at the top echalon of FA’s, whereas Detriot gave a mediocre WR $20M+.
    My surprise is at how poorly Peppers agent handled all of this. First they turn down $14M per from Carolina, then he makes a statement during negotiations that the deal is the Bears to lose and they don’t have to look over their shoulder (talk about giving away your leverage) and finally they sign for what amounts to a $40M 3-year contract (the back years just don’t matter) . . . instead of going back to the Panthers or to the Eagles/Pats and saying hey anyone offering the $14M/year price tag that was set by Carolina. No wonder the guy only has one NFL client.

  56. shaggytoodle says: Mar 5, 2010 4:06 PM

    Players who get drafted by the Bears would love to get taken care of like they do with the newly aquired people, like trades (Cutler) and FA (Peppers), but its extremely hard to do when you can’t draft anybody worth giving that kind of money.

  57. Jabberwocky says: Mar 5, 2010 4:13 PM

    Love to see the haters are out in full force today. That always means one thing….pure jealousy! Great moves for a desperate team, but they just got much better, and they’re not done yet.

  58. skinsforlife35 says: Mar 5, 2010 4:15 PM

    edvedder10…
    Rex Grossman is a BACKUP…. Do you understand the concept of having a BACKUP who KNOWS the offensive system that’s being presented. He was under Kyle Shanahan in Houston as a BACKUP, and simply would be utilized if Campbell went down with an injury. Grossman took you to your only superbowl in HOW MANY YEARS?? How’s cutler working out for you?? How many INTS did he have last year?? Yes, definitely worth the price you paid for him… Peppers is on the down slope of his career waiting for a payday… it’s hilarious you guys were simple enough to give it to him. You guys won the off-season cretin award… Congrats….

  59. MagicMan407 says: Mar 5, 2010 4:16 PM

    The Redskins never even contacted Peppers agent idiots. For one Brian Orakpo and Andre Carter both had 11 sacks each. What would be the point of getting Peppers for the Redskins exactly? Also to this guy:skinsforlife35
    “LOL, enjoy REX GROSSMAN!!!!! Peppers for 12mil/yr a lot cheaper than what was expected…thanks for not driving up the price for Peppers! Chester Taylor, 4 years/12.5 mil, 7mil first year(uncapped), break it down, that’s $1.83mil/yr during years 2, 3, and 4.
    Jason Campbell and Rex Grossman…too hilarious”
    All I got to say is Jay Cutler dont forget the #1 draft pick a few years ago GROSSMAN. Grossman will be the 3rd QB Campbell, Clausen/ Bradford, Rex Grossman. He played as a backup on the Texans and knowns Shanahans system. “halarious” dip shit!

  61. handsomehwang says: Mar 5, 2010 4:19 PM

    Marinelli and Lovie gave Tommie some tough love and he responded with having an ok season, much better than the last couple ones he had. Peppers is already one of the better DEs regardless unlike Tommie the last few years. I can see Marinelli working Peppers and motivating him to a point of dominance.

  62. CanadianVikingFan says: Mar 5, 2010 4:19 PM

    Well, whoever plays QB for us is screwed unless Bryant McKinnie stops beating women and making it rain, and starts blocking people.

  63. Ilovefoolsball says: Mar 5, 2010 4:24 PM

    Peppers WAS a stud end in his heyday. He can still be a force, when he chooses. He will probably put on his best effort this season to show everyone he’s still got it and to justify the signing. After that, who knows. This year is your window of opportunity Bears fans with the Peppers signing and it also being Lovie’s last shot at redemption.
    Lovie’s Bears beat an overachieving saints team in 06 to get to the Superbowl then got their asses handed to them in that rain soaked game. Ever since then it’s been nothing but disoriented, boring, uninspiring games that have followed.
    If the Bears are gonna compete with the top teams in the NFC (Saints, Vikings, Packers, Cowboys) they’re gonna have to improve their wide receiving corps. That INT machine Cutler can’t do it all by himself.

  64. WP says: Mar 5, 2010 4:25 PM

    Watch out for Marinelli…he will change his technique then bench him because his pad level isn’t low enough.

  65. Sceptorx says: Mar 5, 2010 4:34 PM

  68. Greg from Louisiana says: Mar 5, 2010 4:41 PM

    The Bears obviously looked at the handwriting on the NFC championship game wall and decided they were not competitive.
    The Lions have been stocking up too.
    The Vikings best hope is that now with a fat contract, Peppers can retire all over again. If he couldn’t play consistently hard his contract year, who can expect him to play hard with that much in the bank?

  69. scotty_poacher says: Mar 5, 2010 4:45 PM

    There O Line needs help and bad, I think the average draft year is 1988 for the O Line. Fix that then we can talk about winning NOW.

    All the haters hatin on the Bears know that we will be relevant again next year. We showed everyone how to beat the Viqueens last year on Monday Night Football. Now we take away their 3rd down back and add a pass rusher who abused them last year. The Packers can’t expect to do much unless they fix that O Line and Clifton and Tausher are over the hill. I see a 1st rd pick on an O Tackle but not much else coming to help the baby swiss O Line.

  73. cadillacjosh says: Mar 5, 2010 5:11 PM

    I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, even an underperforming underwhelming dont know if he’ll show up Juluis Peppers is better than what we have now. I’ll take his contract no problem.

    no bout skinsfan is a douche….How about saving us all money? or is that code for not letting us spend the money we don’t have, because we paid 100 mil for a DT…just wondering? Enjoy rex grossman my friend. Jason cambell? Seriously? …….FOH

  75. Thoro says: Mar 5, 2010 5:25 PM

  77. NFLpuppetmaster says: Mar 5, 2010 6:21 PM

    Where’s the downside here? So what if he takes plays off, he’ll still get you a minimum 10 sacks every year, especially against NFC north LTs. There aren’t many guys in the league you can say that about. As far as the money, who cares? It isn’t my money. It also amounts to a 3 year deal, so unless its a total disaster, cap or not, the financial ramifications aren’t that big of a deal. The Bears routinely were 20 mil under the cap anyway. While this move by itself won’t make the Bears a SB contender it gets them closer.

    Good for Peppers… But the Bears are still going to have to put Jay Cutler under center. I see a repeat of Grossman. Great “D” to help get them through games and bail out the terrible QB play. Good luck Bears!
    hahaha

    Peppers – isn’t he the guy who was pretty good 3-4 years ago?

    Congrats on looking like a buffoon again Florio! I thought talks between the Skins and Peppers was reaching a boiling point. LMFAO!!!!
    They did even take a sniff in his direction. You make it too easy Florio.

    No, Chris Williams does, he helped shut down the Mullet and has the guy in your name to help elevate his game.

    Thats cuz the Redskins didn’t have the effort to tamper like they did last season with Haynesworth.

    I don’t know about Peppers. He seems a lil’ old and watching bits and pieces of him in Carolina makes me wonder if he’ll make it in Chicago. Carolina football is not Chicago football. But as a devoted Bears fan, I can only hope. $40 mil is entirely too much money though, especially if he’s going to half a$$ majority of the games he plays in. Hell, we might have another Tommie Harris on our hands. /sigh

    All these people hating on Cutler….You’re telling me that Cutler will have another season as bad as he did last year? If he’s so shitty would his trade not still be talked about? Let me guess, He accidentally threw for 4500 yards to two 4th round wr’s in Denver? FOH. New air it out offense, great running backs, tight ends, and Hester back fulltime at KR and PR. Not to mention the fact that Aromashadu Wants it bad and showed when given the chance he’s more than adequate as a #2 wideout. Oh, and can i mention the fact that 4 of our front 7 has 19 combined pro bowls?The only difference between this year and 2006 season is that our D and Special teams will carry us through the playoffs, but this time around the offense is much more potent. Not the best, but Defense WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS….NFC Suck it it’s out time!
