CHICAGO (WSCR) Go ahead and count Bears cornerback Charles Tillman among those who sees a light at the end of the tunnel in the NFL labor talks.
“This will get settled. We’re going to have football at some point in time, I can guarantee you that,” Tillman told The Boers and Bernstein Show on 670 The Score Thursday. “We just don’t know when. But we will have football real soon, I’m more than sure of it. That’s why I really feel like there is really no need to panic.”

An end of the lockout would be a welcome relief to some players who are reportedly strapped for cash. But Tillman doesn’t have much sympathy for those who haven’t been able during the the lockout.
“That’s their fault. Everyone in the league was given plenty of notice,” he said. I think our (players association) did a nice job of giving us a heads up … So if you are strapped for cash, that’s on you. You’ve made some poor choices. Things you have bought, the way of your life style, or you trying to keep up with the Jones. I blame you for that.”
