With free agency looming for Bears cornerback Charles Tillman, he guaranteed that he’ll retire as a Bear.
“There has been speculation that Tillman will want to leave the Bears to go play for Lovie Smith in Tampa Bay, but the cornerback insists he wants to end his playing career in Chicago.”In a perfect world, I will finish as a Bear,” Tillman said via CBS Radio in Chicago. “I guarantee you I will retire as a Chicago Bear. I guarantee that.”
Tillman isn’t getting any younger. If he wants to retire as a Bear, he better be willing to give them a home town discount.
