Charles Tillman open to reuniting with Lovie Smith in Tampa

Bears cornerback Charles Tillman sounds like he’s open to reuniting with head coach Lovie Smith by signing with the Buccaneers in free agency.

“Obviously, it makes the deal probably a little sweeter just because it’s a former head coach,” Tillman said. “You do know the system, you know the scheme.

“I think it helps it from a standpoint that it’s a former coach, a guy that you liked, a guy that you’d been with for 10 years. It’s cool. But it’s free agency. I’m open to whoever.”
