Cornerback Charles Tillman gave Bears fans fans plenty to cheer about during his 12-year run in Chicago, becoming beloved for every ‘Peanut Punch’ and his off-the-field work through his Cornerstone Foundation.

Tillman, who signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers last week, placed an advertisement in the Chicago Sun-Times on Sunday, expressing his gratitude toward Chicago and Bears fans.

“It’s been an honor to wear the Bears uniform, share a few ‘Peanut Punches’ with you and get to know so many fans over the years,” he wrote.

Tillman, 34, departs after setting a team record with nine defensive touchdowns. His 36 interceptions are the most by a cornerback and rank third behind safeties Gary Fencik (38) and Richie Petitbon (37).
