Former UL/NFL Star Charles Tillman Training For FBI
Former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun and NFL All-Pro cornerback Charles Tillman is apparently preparing for his second career.
The former Chicago Bears cornerback is training to become an FBI agent, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The 36-year old Tillman is currently at the FBI Training Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
A native of Chicago, Illinois, Tillman earned his criminal justice degree from UL.
After playing his college football at UL, from 1999-2002, Tillman was selected by the Bears in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft.
The NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2013, Tillman played 12 seasons with the Bears, earning two Pro Bowl honors, before playing his final season with the Carolina Panthers in 2015, helping them to a 15-1 record, and a Super Bowl appearance.
In 13 NFL seasons, Tillman accumulated 911 career tackles, to go along with 38 interceptions, 126 pass deflections, 9 fumble recoveries, and 9 defensive touchdowns.
To be hired by the FBI as a special agent, prospective candidates must be at least 23 years old, but younger than 37, at the time of appointment. Tillman turns 37 next February.
Good luck Peanut!
