Julius Peppers' agent, Carl Carey, confirmed my report from last night: That the Eagles made an offer for the free agent defensive end.
The Bears, however, made the best offer and Peppers is heading to Chicago today. All signs indicate that the Bears and Peppers will get a deal done, but Carey wrote in a text message this morning that "we will see where things go from there."
There was a report from FOXSports' Jay Glazer that Green Bay defensive end Aaron Kampman was scheduled to visit the Eagles, but he later back off that claim and said that the Eagles had xsimply just spoke to Kampman's agent, Neil Cornirch. Attempts to reach Cornrich were unsuccessful.
Kampman is the same age (30) as Peppers and would cost the Eagles considerably less. Some believe he would provide as much an upgrade as Peppers would. Kampman, however, struggled last season. Some of those woes could be pinned on the Packers moving to a 3-4 defense and Kampman being turned into an outside linebacker. Kampman also suffered a torn ACL in Game 10. He had only 3.5 sacks in nine games last season, but compiled the third-most sacks in the NFL between 2006-08.
