The Chicago Bears have replaced Peanut Tillman with another Jennings to add to their secondary. While there’s a chance that cornerback Charles Tillman will be back, the Bears have plugged their safety hole by adding former Green Bay Packers safety M.D. Jennings.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the Packers have lost their safety to their division rivals as Jennings will be playing against Aaron Rodgers in 2014 rather than watching him from the sidelines.
The Chicago Bears have agreed to a one-year deal with safety M.D Jennings, a fourth-year veteran who has made 26 starts for the Green Bay Packers over the past two seasons.
The Bears adding Jennings isn’t a home run signing but it’s still significant. Chicago needs safety help and they’ve spent on two in as many days. There are still moves to be made for the Bears but they have filled one of their biggest needs and can now rest easy in making their other moves.
As far as the Packers, they can’t keep all of their talent and losing Jennings hurts but isn’t a fatal loss.
