Bears | Restructuring Julius Peppers' deal imperative

The Chicago Bears would save a considerable amount on the salary cap by restructuring DE Julius Peppers' contract. He is due $12.9 million in base salary in 2013 and has a salary cap charge of $16.383 million, which is approximately 13 percent of the team's entire cap. If Chicago converted $9 million of Peppers' base salary into a bonus payment it would save them $6 million against his year's cap.
