Peppers picks the Packers. Talk about a tongue twister. According to a report by ESPN on March 15, free agent defensive end Julius Peppers and the Green Bay Packers has agreed on a three-year deal worth $30 million max.

ESPN's Josina Anderson first reported the news that comes as somewhat of a surprise. The 34-year-old Peppers was released by the Chicago Bears just a week ago and was linked to be interested in other teams such as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys.

In joining the Packers, the 12-year veteran gets to say in the NFC North, a conference he is very familiar with. Peppers signed a blockbuster six-year deal with $84 million with the Bears in 2010 after spending his previous eight seasons with the Carolina Panthers.

Although Peppers is not as dominate as he once was, he still has a little left in his motor. Last season with the Bears, Peppers led the team with 7.5 sacks which was the fewest he has had with the team. The Pro Bowl defensive end has 118.5 career sacks in his entire 12-year career in the NFL.
