Charles Tillman: Bears want me back, but ‘it’s a matter of finances’


Charles Tillman doesn’t know if he will be back next season with the Chicago Bears, but he does know he won’t be making a position change.

“I don’t want to play safety anywhere,” Tillman said in an interview with The McNeil and Spiegel Show on 670 The Score on Wednesday morning.

The 33-year-old Tillman, who will become a free agent in March, believes he’ll be on an NFL team in 2014.

“My gut is I will be on an NFL team next year,” Tillman said. “Everyone knows how the process works. It’s a business. If I’m here, sweet. If I’m not, that’s business … There’s no hard feelings. I love Chicago. Chicago’s been nothing but great — great owners, great organization, great teammates.”

Tillman doesn’t get the impression that the Bears don’t want him back.

“No, I don’t think that’s the case,” Tillman said. “I don’t think that they don’t want me back. Hell, I know they want me back. I think it’s a matter of finances and everything working out.”
