The Bears will get a firsthand look to see if Peppers is finished or has anything left in the tank.  Former Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers  is staying in the NFC North, but he’s heading to the other side of the Cheddar Curtain.  The 8-time Pro Bowl defensive end agreed to terms on a 3-year contract with the Green Bay Packers that could be worth a lot of cheddar, according to ESPN:

"Peppers agreed to a three-year deal worth up to $30 million, his agent, Carl Carey, told ESPN’s Josina Anderson. The deal includes $7.5 million in guaranteed money and will pay Peppers $8.5 million in salary for the first year, Carey told Anderson."
