NFL Free Agency: Chicago Bears release Julius Peppers
The beginning of the NFL Free Agency period has been an active one for the Chicago Bears. They have made steps to improve their defense with a few early signings. They have also released a veteran.
The team announced Tuesday that they would release defensive end Julius Peppers. The move will save the Bears $9.8M in cap space this season.
The Bears signed Peppers in 2010 and he was an immediate factor. Last season however, Peppers struggled to produce.
Peppers finished with 38 sacks, 3 interceptions and 7 forced fumbles in 64 games with the Bears.
