Julius Peppers signed a free agent deal with the Green Bay Packers, after being released by the Chicago Bears.

The 34-year old is on to his third stop in the NFL, after being drafted second overall by the Carolina Panthers back in 2002, and signing with the Bears in the 2010 off season.

The three year contract will pay Peppers $8.5 million in year one, and could be worth up to $30 million with incentives.

Peppers has played eight pro bowls, as recently as after the 2012 season, and was the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year with Carolina.

He is currently 17th on the NFL's all time sack list with 119, two ahead of DeMarcus Ware who recently signed with the Denver Broncos.
