I love this signing. I know he’s old (34) but I think he can still play. And I know he wasn’t great last year but the Bears D was awful – especially the d-line, wasn’t his fault. There are a few reasons in particular why this is a great signing: 1) it’s an admission from TT that relying so heavily on the draft isn’t the best approach; 2) Peppers opposite Matthews (or even being on the fieof at the same time) should be scary for QBs; 3) Peppers will add some degree of veteran leadership or at the least veteran presence on a D that didn’t had it last year; 4) we addressed, on a fundamental level, a huge need position- our pass rush was awful last year which made thInge harder for an already bad secondary.
Overall a big signing. Nicely done TT.
