Bears Sign Top Free Agent Peppers

The Bears got them some hot Peppers on Friday.  No, not Marconi’s hot peppers, but maybe there’s a new spokesman for Chicago’s best giardiniera in the newest Bear, Julius Peppers.

Then again, Peppers doesn’t need the money after inking a 6-year, $92.5 million dollar deal with $42 million guaranteed.  Not a bad little Friday for the prize of the 2010 Free Agent Class.  Here’s what ESPN’s John Clayton said about Peppers’ motivation to come to the Bears: 

The Peppers signing caps off a day of free-spending the likes of which the Chicago Bears have never known.  The Bears also signed running back Chester Taylor and tight end Brandon Manumaleuna.  (Hey, I finally figured out how to spell his name without double checking it in his bio!)

I need to let the signings settle in a bit before I know what to make of them as a whole, but I’ll say this – I never, ever would have expected this.  Today’s events at Halas Hall make the Jay Cutler trade seem trivial.
