Agent Carl Carey says that inking defensive end Julius Peppers is Chicago’s “deal to lose.”
So what if they lose?
Carey told Steve Reed of the Gaston Gazette that, if things don’t work out in Chicago, Peppers will visit with the Eagles.
It’s looking less likely by the minute that Peppers will leave Chicago as anything but a member of the Bears. Carey told Reed that the Bears have “extended an impressive contract offer.”
“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.”
So he doesn’t want the Bears to look over their shoulders but there the Eagles are, over the Bears’ shoulders.
Yep. Tom Hagen.
