The Chicago Tribune doesn't expect the Bears to re-sign free agent CB Charles Tillman.

Tillman, 33, played in just eight games this season due to multiple injuries. The Bears are unlikely to offer a contract anywhere close to the $7.95 million he made in 2013, but there's been speculation that Tillman could reunite with Bucs coach Lovie Smith in Tampa. "I am just going to see what happens. I have options," Tillman said. Rotoworld ranks Tillman as the No. 6 free agent cornerback this offseason. He could also be moved to safety depending on where he signs.

Rivera connection. Could be Mikell type player. Injured a lot last year, still talented when not.

 

Discuss.

Doubt it. I'm not too hopeful for big names given how many FA's we have of our own.

btw, I don't think we wanna see Revis and Tillman on the Bucs too. What a sick combo.

I would love it but lovie might have us beat on this.

At the same time they do have revis and banks. Tillman would get more playing time here

He'd sign with Tampa the day after Chicago cuts him.

Any way you slice it there is a plethora of good CB's believed to be hitting the market this year.

 

 

The more the better.

If Peanut came here, both of our starting corners would be Ragin Cajun Alums which would make me one incredibly happy guy.

He'll sign with Tampa, they have much more cap and the Lovie Smith connection is much stronger than the Rivera connection. 

 

I'm also not sure how much I want a 33 year old corner who can't seem to stay healthy at this point in his career.
