Charles Tillman has decided that he isn't going anywhere and has resigned for the Chicago Bears.

Tillman went on to free agency hoping for a better deal and met up with former coach Lovie Smith in Tampa.

However the two couldn't come up with a deal preferable to what Chicago had on the table and Tillman is staying put for a little longer.

The deal is for one year and is reportedly worth around $3.5 million.

Despite flirting with free agency, Tillman now has a chance to come back after an injury ridden 2013.

Knee injuries kept the 33-year-old on the sidelines for most of last season including surgery for torn muscles.

When Tillman played though, he was worth the wait. For the eight games he started, he managed three interceptions and forced three fumbles.

Tillman's charity work was celebrated at the start of 2013 when he was the recipient of the Walter Peyton Man of the Year award before the Super Bowl, giving a highlight to an otherwise poor year.
