Lovie Smith is traveling for his job tonight. He landed a short while ago, hoping to bring free-agent DE Julius Peppers back to Chicago with him and sign him to be the team's pass-rush ace alongside DT Tommie Harris.

The move makes sense. For both sides.

Peppers would be behind Brian Urlacher and Jay Cutler as the faces of the franchise. And he instantly would upgrade the defense in a city that loves its defense.

For the Bears, it makes sense, too. They need something. No first-rounder, no second-rounder. Signing Peppers and Chester Taylor, who also is visiting Friday, well, there's your top two picks right there.

Think about this: The Bears have made the biggest first overture in free agency. The Redskins, meanwhile, are silent. Has that ever happened?
