Bears: Jared Allen
After threatening to retire, and subsequently flirting with the Seahawks and Cowboys, Jared Allen instead gave the NFC North a jolt by signing with the Chicago Bears. The Bears lost Julius Peppers earlier this offseason, but have found a more-than-capable replacement in their former division rival. The 31-year-old Allen has 128.5 career sacks, putting him 12th on the all-time list. More importantly, he has notched double-digit sacks in each of his last seven seasons.
