Peppers to Chicago; Eagles quiet - Philly.com

 

posted in Philly.com/sports:

According to multiple reports out of Chicago, Carolina defensive end Julius Peppers is headed to Chicago tomorrow to meet with the Bears. Peppers' agent, Carl Carey, told the Chicago Sun-Times that it was the Bears' "deal to lose."

Usually once a team lures a free agent to their headquarters the free agent isn't leaving without a contract. Plus, Chicago coach Lovie Smith reportedly visited Peppers at his Carolina home. (What, at the stroke of midnight?)

The Redskins and Seahawks were also believed to be among the finalists for Peppers. The Eagles, according to a league source, made their offer but it wasn't enough -- right now. If the Bears can't get the deal done, the Eagles are still there, Carey told the Gaston Gazette.

"Chicago will be our first visit and we don't want them looking over their shoulder worrying about other teams right now," Carey said. "They were the first to call and they've made us a ballpark offer and it's good enough to where we'll make a visit. Pending the outcome of that visit we may visit with Philadelphia and see where we are from there."

All indications, though, are that Peppers will become a Bear.
