It appeared imminent when they attempted to trade him on Monday, but Julius Peppers is no longer a member of the Chicago Bears.

Peppers signed a monster deal in 2010, and that deal and its adjustments put the Bears in an uncomfortable salary cap situation this year.

The Bears look to gain $9,816,665 in cap space, while dealing with over $8 million in dead money.

Peppers himself had a disappointing, by his standards, year in 2013. He had 7.5 sacks, an interception, a fumble recovery, and 31 tackles in sixteen games. This is coming off of back to back double digit sack seasons.

In his four years with the Bears, he logged 38 sacks, 3 picks, 3 fumble recoveries, 1 TD, and 139 tackles.
