Bears land a cornerback

With Charles Tillman and D.J. Moore the only cornerbacks with experience remaining on the roster, the Chicago Bears had to make a move.

They did before free agency opened, re-signing Tim Jennings to a two-year contract. Jennings, a bargain find two years ago, started 28 of 32 regular-season games over the last two seasons. But his status with the team wasn’t completely known after he was benched for one game in Week 16.

Jennings fit the Cover-2 scheme well and will likely remain the starter opposite Tillman with Moore filling the role of nickel back. The Bears will likely add more depth at the position in the draft or in a secondary wave of free agency.
