NFL Free Agency: Chicago Bears re-sign cornerback Charles "Peanut" Tillman

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Despite a visit to his old coach in Tampa Bay, the Bears have agreed to terms to bring the veteran cornerback back into the Halas den.

Best news of the day:

Tillman, a second round draft pick by the Chicago Bears in 2003...who am I kidding? You know who I'm talking about.

Tillman has been a starter since his rookie year. In an injury shortened 2013, he had 3 interceptions, 7 pass defenses, three forced fumbles, and 33 tackles.

In his career he has 40 forced fumbles(!), 36 interceptions, 9 touchdowns, 737 tackles.  He's the 2014 Walter Payton Man of the Year award winner, due to his outstanding character and charity on and off the field. He's an all around good dude.

If it is a one-year deal, that's interesting, as you'd thought his pay would necessitate spreading it across.  Perhaps a discount for a fanbase he clearly loves? We'll bring you more details on it as we know.
