In this exclusive audio feature for, senior NFL reporter Adam Caplan chats with Bear Report publisher John Crist about Julius Peppers, the Martz-Cutler marriage and much more.

John Crist: Free agency is going to be very different this year. We're going to have an uncapped season. Just what can Bears fans and NFL fans in general expect in terms of how things are going to shake out once March 5th gets here?

Adam Caplan: It's going to be very choppy, I think very strange, something we haven't seen because teams are going to be reluctant to spend big money, except for the really top free agents like Julius Peppers. Honestly, I think it's going to be something we probably have not seen before, and it's going to be kind of interesting. But, again, I think it's going to be kind of slow. The first day usually is when the top free agents come. It's going to be, really, I think the story of free agency could be restricted free agents because there are over 200 of them, and it comes down to what level of tender they get. If they get a lower tender than a lot of people thought, these guys could have a lot of action in free agency.
