Julius Peppers agrees to 3-year deal with Green Bay Packers, according to report

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

The Green Bay Packers have reportedly agreed to terms on a 3-year deal with free agent Julius Peppers, who was most recently in the NFC North with the Chicago Bears.

The Green Bay Packers don't usually spend much time in free agency but they just signed a big name, reportedly agreeing to a multi-year deal with defensive end Julius Peppers, who was cut by the Chicago Bears this week. ESPN's Josina Anderson has the report.

Not only do the Packers pick up a player who has amassed 119 sacks in 12 years, but they also take that player away from a divisional rival. The Bears cut Peppers partially for salary cap reasons but he is also coming off of one of his least productive seasons with 7.5 sacks. Peppers had 22.5 sacks from 2011-12 so he's not far removed from quality pass rushing numbers.

We haven't seen the contract numbers yet but this from Andrew Brandt seems about right:

Peppers is 34 years old.

More details coming soon.
