Bears sign Tillman to one-year deal

Lake Forest, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with cornerback Charles Tillman on a one-year contract.

The 33-year-old Tillman had 41 tackles, three interceptions and six passes defensed in eight games last season, his 11th with the Bears. He ended the 2013 season on injured reserve with a torn triceps.

"Charles is one of the NFL's great players and a true leader on and off the field and we're happy he will be staying in Chicago," Bears general manager Phil Emery said. "He remains the best in our game at forcing turnovers and always has brought a tough, physical presence to our secondary. Charles also has a special connection to the people and community across Chicago and we're excited for that to continue."

A two-time Pro Bowler, Tillman is third in team history with 36 interceptions and is the franchise leader in defensive return touchdowns (nine), interception return touchdowns (eight) and interception return yards (675).

Originally selected by the Bears in the second round of the 2003 draft, Tillman has 848 tackles, 42 forced fumbles and three sacks in 154 career games.
