Bears’ Jennings added to Pro Bowl

Due to the Seattle Seahawks’ Cornerback, Richard Sherman, heading to the Super Bowl, the NFL announced that Bears’ Cornerback, Tim Jennings, will replace him on the Pro Bowl roster. He becomes the second Bears’ cornerback to make two consecutive Pro Bowls after teammate, Peanut Tilman, did it in 2011-2012.

He led the Bears with four interceptions this past season, three forced fumbles, which tied for the team lead, and one opponent fumble recovery. He returned two of those interceptions for touchdowns. After the season, the team rewarded him with a four-year contract. His 13 interceptions over the last two seasons are the second most in the league to Sherman’s 16.

“He’s been a big part of our defense since he’s been here, tremendous Pro Bowl season a year ago”, said General Manager, Phil Emery. “He started the season out making plays. We had some injuries and we didn’t have as good a rush. That forced everybody in the secondary to play in a different style and with the injury to Charles Tillman, that put a lot of responsibility on Tim to handle the No.1 receiver, and I thought he did well. I thought He had an excellent season. “

Jennings was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2006 NFL draft, and he won a Super Bowl ring with them against the Bears. He signed with the Bears in 2010 as a free agent, and has started for the most part since.

Let’s hope that Jennings no only makes more Pro Bowls, but also adds some more Super Bowl rings too.
