Cornerback for the Chicago Bears
Charles Tillman Biography
Charles Tillman was born February 23, 1981 in Chicago, Illinois and is an American football cornerback for the Chicago Bears of the NFL. He was selected with the 35th overall pick of the 2003 NFL Draft.
The Chicago Bears selected Tillman in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft, making him the draft-s 35th overall pick. He became a starter after working very hard, and recorded eighty-three tackles and four interceptions during his first year with the Bears. However, an injury during his sophomore year temporarily grounded his career. Tillman rebounded the following year, recording ninety-three tackles and five interceptions. His efforts help the Bears establish the league's best defense in 2005.
In 2006, Tillman was the Bears- leading tackler among defensive backs, recording eighty tackles. He also intercepted five passes (tying for a team high with Ricky Manning Jr) and forced one fumble. One of the low notes for his season came when he missed the team-s final games due to a back injury. Tillman was involved in a notable incident with Plaxico Burress before a prime-time game against the New York Giants. Days before the game, Giant's receiver Plaxico Burress claimed that the Bears' secondary was "average" and "very beatable". Tillman responded by holding Burress to only eleven yards and even intercepting a pass during the game. Many Bears' fans believe that Tillman should have been voted to the 2007 Pro Bowl, as he recorded more interceptions and tackles than DeAngelo Hall and Ronde Barber.
The Bears signed Tillman to a six-year deal on July 24, 2007. On December 8, 2007, Tillman was nominated as finalist for the prestigious Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, which recognizes players who have performed extensive charity work.
On November 22, 2009, during a Sunday Night Football game vs the Philadelphia Eagles, Tillman forced a career high 3 fumbles in one game! 2 of which were recovered by the Bears.
