LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -Cornerback Charles Tillman and the Chicago Bears agreed Tuesday on a six-year contract extension.
Tillman, a second-round draft choice in 2003, now could be with the Bears through the 2013 season. He has started 49 games in four seasons.
Tillman made five interceptions last season when the Bears advanced to the Super Bowl and has 14 for his career. That's two behind teammate Nathan Vasher, who earlier this summer signed a five-year contract extension.
The Bears report to training camp Thursday and begin practice Friday at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais.
