Reports: Tillman Leaves Tampa Without Signing Contract

(CBS) Free agent cornerback Charles Tillman has left his visit in Tampa Bay without signing a contract, according to reports, leaving open the possibility he could still return to the Bears if the finances work out on both sides.


With new coach Lovie Smith, the Bucs were long considered to be a favorite to land Tillman, who played for Smith in Chicago. But the Bucs signed cornerback Alterraun Verner to a four-year deal on Tuesday, filling a need and likely making them less dependent on Tillman.

The situation remains fluid, but it appears Tillman will continue looking elsewhere for a job.
