After hearing Julius Peppers’ agent’s statements last night, it was only a matter of time before the prize of this free agent crop signed with the Bears.
The time is near.
Neil Hayes of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Peppers is taking a physical in Chicago and a signing is imminent.
The only question left is how much money Peppers will earn. Hayes hears that Peppers will earn $12-14 million-per-year over six years, which is actually less than we imagined.
It’s all about the structure. We’d be surprised if Peppers doesn’t get the most guaranteed money for a defender in league history or very close to it.
