      Return in works? RT @vxmcclure23 Initial word is Falcons won't have to face CB Charles Tillman with the Bucs, but we'll see how it unfolds.

    It would be nice if he were to come back for a year, I heard after the season he and Briggs had always wanted to retire together.

    Thats the only logical plan.

    He's VERY rooted here, and the Bears said they wanted him back. They just didn't make any effort to get him. They probably want him to play the field to show him this is his home.

    Kind of like letting someone free.. If they come back, he's yours.

    The Yankees did this with Jeter before. He wanted crazy money from them and they told him to go see what he was worth out on the market and come back to them. He found out, and he signed his deal with the Yankees. People need to calm down a bit. Let Tillman see what the market thinks he's worth...maybe then he'll see the Bears offer isn't so bad.

    Good news. Hopefully Phil will stop wasting his time by signing mediocre veterans and focus on real playmakers like Peanut and Wootton.

    Couldn't agree more. Phil's unimpressive moves in the FA safety market were a little reminiscent of JA's dumpster dives. We really could use Peanut back (+ draft his understudy) and I'd take Wootton back in a heartbeat as well if his medical checks out.

    I don't think Phil is dumpster diving as bad, I'll have to admit this is one bad year for FA. I agree that he needs to sign Tillman like right now, and lets get Peppers back here as well!
