Agent: Peppers could visit 2 others besides Bears

Recommended Posts


Carl Carey, the agent for Julius Peppers, said his client is very excited about spending Friday in Chicago meeting with Bears officials and negotiating a new contract, but the free-agent defensive end could make other visits.

Carey said that of the suitors thus far, two other teams have piqued Peppers’ interest. Carey declined to name the teams at this point because they hadn’t given him permission to reveal their interest in having Peppers visit.

“Of the teams that have called us, there are two other possibilities that could be worth visiting,” Carey said. “When the Bears called, they said enough to entice us to get on a plane to Chicago. Beyond that, I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Carey said Bears coach Lovie Smith flew to North Carolina — where Peppers, a longtime Panther, lives — to meet with them and will fly back to Chicago with them Friday morning. Peppers is expected to command the biggest contract in this limited free-agent market.
