Veteran DB Charles Tillman Announces Retirement With Hilarious Video

Bears great Charles Tillman is retiring after 13 very productive seasons in the NFL. The 35-year-old cornerback secured two Pro Bowl appearances,was named first team All Pro in 2012, and most notably was named the Walter Peyton Man of the Year Award the following year. He most recently helped the Carolina Panthers reach the Super Bowl last year, where they didn’t fare so well.

To announce his retirement, Tillman released a video spoof which incorporates the “Peanut Punch,” a nickname given to his incredible ability to punch the ball away from defenders.

It’s excellent.

Helluva career, Charles. You’ll be missed.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
