    This is from 670 today. Reading between the lines it almost sounds like he wants one more year and then retire. It that's the case, maybe the Bears can find a way to bring him back for 1 season. Make it an incentive driven contract too. He doesn't sound like a guy who wants to go to a new team at this point. He likes playing for Tucker. Why go and have to learn a new teams's system if you're only going to play another year or so?

    The man is classy. I'd be happy if he came back.

    I hope they can find a middle ground. Tillman is a class act and I think he just needs to see what teams will pay him. Can not blame a guy for seeing what his net worth is. When all is said and done hopefully the Bears are in the same ballpark and they can find a common middle ground and get him back here for a yr or two. Maybe he becomes a mentor for his last year or two and becomes a back up and makes a million to be a mentor. Still more money that the average job pays and he grooms the next great CB, while adding depth. I guess I am just making the point if they are in the same ballpark they can find a common ground.

    Reading the article.... to me it sounds like its the Bears or no one.

    If the Bears and he cannot reach an agreement, he walks away from the game.

    Who else is going to even have a chance to shut down Megatron? Who else is going to generate the most turnovers on D? We're probably divesting ourselves of Peppers, Melton, Hester, and Bennett. A complete turnover of personnel is unlikely. This guy is definitely not a waste of money.

    Turnover MACHINE. I will be very surprised if he doesn't command a great market price even for a one year incentive laden deal. AND he can take big receivers one on one...I think the best offers might be coming from inside the nfc north. We would really be starting from total scratch without him and that scares me-most good d's seem to have one or two crafty ol' timers pulling tricks out of their helmets.

    I really thought he would not be coming back after we signed Jennings. If there is an outside chance that he would come back for a 1 or 2 years deal, that is incentive heavy and cap friendly, then we would be crazy not to try to get him back.

    The way I read the article, it sounds as if he would rather stay in Chicago because a move to another team would only be short term.

    Come back Peanut, retire as a Bear!!

    He could be a waste of money if he gets paid too much
