Former Bears player Charles 'Peanut' Tillman earns Federal Bureau of Investigation badge

Report: Former Bears CB Charles Tillman Is Now An FBI Agent

However, when he announced his retirement, Tillman re-signed a one-day contract with Chicago so he could retire a Bear.

Former Chicago Bears defensive back Charles "Peanut" Tillman has been training to become an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent since retiring from football after the 2015 season. Tillman unfortunately tore his ACL in the regular season finale against Tampa Bay but his leadership and sideline presence was felt throughout the playoffs. Tillman became known for his signature move called the "Peanut Punch", which was his ability to punch the ball out of an offensive players' hands.

That his second career choice now involves punching out crime isn't out of character for the son of an Army sergeant who graduated from Louisiana-Lafayette with a degree in criminal justice and spent some of his National Football League offseasons working with law enforcement personnel. Tillman started his post-playing career by spending some time as an analyst for Fox, but apparently he wanted to do something more. According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, "FBI guidelines mandate prospective candidates for hiring as a special agent must be at least 23 years old but younger than 37 at the time of appointment". Tillman entered the 20-week program previous year, and it looks like he qualified just in time, as today is his 37th birthday. He expressed interest in working with law enforcement and would train with officers during the offseason throughout his career. He played 12 of his 13 seasons for the organization, then helped the Panthers to a 15-1 record and appearance in Super Bowl 50 in 2015.

In 2013, Tillman was named Walter Payton Man of the Year.
