Biggs: Bears optimistic about Peppers

Free agency opens in minutes and the Chicago Bears are entering the process with optimism that they will land defensive end Julius Peppers, according to a league source.

If so, Peppers will surely pull down the largest contract in the history of the franchise.

The Bears, who will lose defensive end Adewale Ogunleye in free agency, are in desperate need of a pass rusher to invigorate their defense that has slipped badly over the last three seasons.

Peppers would provide that and more. Stay tuned.
