Ultimate Autographs is proud to announce that Chicago Bears legend Charles "Peanut" Tillman will be signing autographs and taking pictures with fans at 2pm on Dec. 22 at Durty Nellie's located at 180 N. Smith St., Palatine, IL 60067.
Charles Tillman was born in Chicago, IL but spent much of his youth on the move as his father was a sergeant in the United States Army. Tillman would graduate from Copperas Cove High School (Texas) and attend the University of Louisiana at Lafaytte. After playing for the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns, Tillman was drafted in the second round of the 2003 NFL draft. He became an immediate impact player, recording 83 tackles and four interceptions in his rookie year.
Tillman helped lead a ferocious Chicago Bears defense that propelled the team to Super Bowl XLI in 2006. Tillman should've likely earned his first Pro Bowl nod as he recorded more interceptions and tackles than other defenders voted in. He would eventually earn back-to-back Pro Bowl awards in 2011 & 2012 (All-Pro) as he was considered one of the league's top defensive players overall.
The star player holds the Bears record for most defensive touchdowns scored, forced fumbles and came close to breaking Gary Fencik's team record for interceptions. Through 168 games, Tillman amassed 38 interceptions, 911 combined tackles and an astounding 44 forced fumbles.
