Bears fans may not love how far their team is from a championship, but they may have someone to cheer for this Super Bowl Sunday. Long-time cornerback and fan-favorite Charles Tillman has a chance to win a ring with the Panthers.
While Tillman was unable to play in Sunday night’s NFC Championship game and will be sidelined for the Super Bowl, the former Pro-Bowl corner took some time to soak in the moment with his two daughters.

This is the second Super Bowl Tillman has reached, his first coming with the Bears in Super Bowl XLI. Tillman’s team will once again be facing off against a Peyton Manning-led team.
Tillman spent 12 seasons with the Bears, reaching the Pro Bowl in 2011 and 2012. He holds the franchise record for defensive touchdowns and forced fumbles. He’s third in career interceptions in team history.
This is Tillman’s first season with the Panthers. He was the team’s starting corner for 12 games before tearing his ACL in Week 16, and recorded two interceptions.
