Former Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman is reportedly training to join the FBI


Former Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman recently started training to join the FBI, a high-ranking law enforcement official told the Chicago Tribune.

The 36-year-old, who holds a criminal justice degree from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette, is currently at the FBI Training Academy in Quantico, Virginia, ESPN reports.

According to FBI guidelines, prospective candidates for special agent positions must be at least 23 years old, but not older than 37 at the time of appointment. So Tillman, who turns 37 in February, just makes the cut.

It still isn't clear what position Tillman is training for at the moment.

Tillman retired from the NFL last summer after playing 12 out of his 13 seasons with the Bears. He was best known for his "Peanut Punch," which helped force 44 fumbles during his career.

Since he left the NFL, Tillman has been working as an analyst for Fox Sports.
