Bears Cornerback Tim Jennings

Bears Cornerback Tim Jennings

By a poll of league players conducted by the NFL Network, the Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings has been voted the 69th best player in the NFL. As an NFL fan, you know of the big names of the defensive line of the Bears like Briggs, Peppers, and Tillman. They have played in the NFL for many years and they and have a good reputation around the league. One player you may not have expected to have the great season he did in 2012, and then end up on the top 100 players list is Tim Jennings. Jennings, an 8-year veteran, had 9 interceptions in 2012, the most by any Bears player in 22 years. Those 9 interceptions are tied for the second most in franchise history. Jennings also set a single season record with three multi-interception games. Furthermore, Jennings broke up a team high 16 passes, including two that were intercepted by teammates. In the beginning of his career, Jennings was far from where is now. Even in 2011 he was benched in favor of Zachary Bowman. Jennings is a small corner, standing at 5’8” and 185 lbs, but his hard work in 2012 paid off, and what he lacks in physical size, he makes up in heart.
