The Chicago Bears may be set to let go one of their veteran stars, Julius Peppers.
According to ESPN Insider Adam Schefter the franchise is seeking to move on the defensive end this offseason:
"Bears calling around the league, seeing if they can find a trade partner for DE Julius Peppers, per sources. Trade unlikely...," he tweeted today.
The Bears were today left disappointed as target defensive end Michael Bennett decided to stay in Seattle, but still seem intent on releasing Peppers as they look to refresh their roster.
Should they release Peppers the Chicago Bear would make almost $9.8 million in cap space this season and he would follow Devin Hester out of the door at Soldier Field.
Peppers has been in Chicago since 2010 but it seems that his team are actively searching for a franchise to take him of their hands as the eight-time Pro Bowler is scheduled to make $13.9 million in the 2014 season should he stick around.
What do you think Bears fans? Is this a logical move for your team?
