CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The Chicago Bears and Jared Allen agree to a four year deal worth $32 Million. A league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter the deal  includes $15.5 million in guaranteed money and could void after three years for $24 million. Allen has 128.5 career sacks, which is good for 12th most in history.

Allen will be replacing Julius Peppers, whose performance has declined over the last couple years. Allen needs 4.5 sacks to move into sole possession of 10th place, and he could climb to as high as fifth next season and pass Strahan if he's able to record 13.5 sacks.
