After adding Julius Peppers in free agency last year, you would figure the Bears would be out on big-name defensive end free agents in 2011.

You would be wrong.

Sean Jensen says Babin is “on the Bears radar” according to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times.

The Eagles are also looking for a defensive end. They could possibly show interest in Babin after signing his old defensive line coach Jim Washburn.  Then again, Philly may be hesitant to spend big money on Babin when he didn’t make much of an impact on their 2009 team.
