GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson has found a veteran defensive player to add to his unit, but not someone many fans expected.

Former Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers has agreed to a three-year contract with the Packers worth up to $30 million, according to ESPN.

Peppers' agent Carl Carey sent out a tweet Saturday morning announcing that Peppers, "is officially a Packer!"

The former number two pick overall in the 2002 draft was released by the Bears on Tuesday.
