Bears agree to 1-year deal with Tillman

Posted: Updated:

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bears have agreed to a one-year contract with two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Charles Tillman.

Tillman's status was one of the biggest questions hovering over the team this offseason after the Bears went 8-8 and missed the playoffs for the sixth time in seven seasons. But they answered that on Friday, announcing he will be back for a 12th season.

The Bears have been overhauling a defense that struggled last season, releasing eight-time Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers. They decided to bring Tillman back even though he is 33 and is coming off a season in which he was limited to eight games because of a torn right triceps.
