Perhaps realizing that saying a contract with Julius Peppers is Chicago’s “deal to lose,” word emerged Friday morning that the Patriots and Eagles also have offers out to Peppers, according to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora.
That’s nice and all, but Peppers isn’t going to Foxborough or Philadelphia Friday afternoon. Bill Belichick and Andy Reid didn’t visit Peppers in North Carolina at midnight like Lovie Smith did.
This looks like a last-minute effort by Peppers’ agent Carl Carey to squeeze some extra cash out of Chicago’s coffers.
Carey himself said that the Bears shouldn’t look over their shoulders or worry about other teams. They’d be wise to listen.
