According to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, Former Bears and Panthers cornerback, Charles 'Peanut' Tillman is training to join the FBI.
 
The FBI, though, wouldn't confirm the report.
"We don't speak about personnel matters," special agent Garrett Croon, a spokesman for the Chicago bureau, told the Tribune.
 
Tillman graduated from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice. His dad served in the military. And Tillman won the NFL's Salute to Service award after the 2012 season.
 
Tillman is 36 years old. According to the Tribune, the FBI requires special agents to be younger than 37 at the time of appointment. 
 
Tillman, drafted by the Bears in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft, spent the first 12 years of his career in Chicago, racking up 36 picks, eight defensive touchdowns, and an insane 42 forced fumbles. He played for the Panthers in 2015 and added two interceptions and two forced fumbles to his resume. He's a sneaky Hall of Fame candidate.
