The Chicago Bears endured a terrible season on the gridiron in 2014, capitulating to a 5-11 record and dead last in the NFC North standings, and their 2015 hasn't gotten off to a great start either judging by reports today.

News emanating out of Gwinnett County, Georgia has revealed that Bears cornerback (and two-time Pro-Bowler) Tim Jennings has been arrested on multiple charges.

ESPN's Michael C. Wright broke the story, revealing that Jennings has been charged for driving under the influence, speeding and reckless driving.

Details are limited at present as the facts continue to be compiled but ,as per the report, Jennings' bond has been set at $2,705 and, at time of writing, the five year Bear is yet to bond out.

The news only compounds a disappointing 12 months for Jennings who, like the rest of the Chicago franchise, struggled to hit top form on the field in a season that ended with the dismissal of both head coach Marc Trestman and GM Phil Emory.

Not living up to expectations

Having achieved Pro Bowl recognition in both 2012 and 2013 Tim Jennings signed a new $22.4 million, four-year deal in Chicago back in January 2014 but, despite playing in all 16 of the team's regular season match ups, the cornerback failed to register a single interception as part of a Bears set up that struggled on defense - an area of traditional strength.

With those in charge of the Chicago Bears at present busy searching for the next men charged with turning around the famous franchise, news that one of their veterans (Jennings is now 31) has been arrested is sure to have been met with dismay.

Search continues

Focussing on the head coach search, it appears reports linking two-time Super Bowl winning coach Mike Shanahan to the top job are false with Wright again the man in the know - the Bears beat reporter arguing that Shanahan is not presently on the team's list of HC candidates.
