Tim Jennings spending time in the slot | 05/27/2014 5:17 PM
NewsBears LCB Tim Jennings is spending time at nickel back in OTAs, and could man the slot in sub-packages this season.
ImpactJennings is coming off back-to-back Pro Bowl seasons on the outside. "We're going to try it out," Jennings said. "Hopefully it will be a full-time thing. It's a little different for me. I've got to get back acclimated to playing nickel and playing two positions on defense." The move was brought about by the Bears' selection of CB Kyle Fuller at No. 14 overall. Signed to a four-year, $22.4 million extension in January, Jennings will remain on the outside in non-nickel situations.
Tim Jennings gets $22.4M over four years | 01/03/2014 1:47 PM
NewsBears LCB Tim Jennings' four-year contract is worth $22.4 million and contains $11.815 million guaranteed.
ImpactIn good shape under the cap, the Bears stuffed the first year with a $6.05 million roster bonus instead of a signing bonus, therefore avoiding any proration and/or "dead money" in future years. Jennings' base salaries will be manageable throughout the life of the contract. The $5.6 million annual average is quite reasonable. This looks like a team-friendly deal assuming Jennings doesn't suddenly fall off a cliff. He turned 30 two weeks ago.
Bears re-sign CB Jennings for four years | 01/02/2014 11:02 AM
NewsBears re-signed CB Tim Jennings to a four-year contract.
ImpactJennings was forced to step in as the Bears' top corner as Charles Tillman missed eight games. The 30-year-old handled himself exceptionally, grading out 15th among 109 qualifying corners per Pro Football Focus. With Tillman heading for unrestricted free agency, Jennings may very well be forced into the No. 1 corner job again.
