Bears CB Tim Jennings could transition into slot role
by Marty Gitlin |

Bears cornerback Tim Jennings is "still trying to figure out" where he will fit into the secondary this season, the Chicago Tribune is reporting.

The nine-year veteran, who is entering his sixth season in the Windy City, has 95 career starts and led the league in interceptions in 2012. He is even a two-time Pro Bowler. But he spent significant time as the slot corner in minicamp. That's an unsatisfying role for him that he just might be forced to embrace.

Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio prefers his outside corners tall and physical. Jennings is 5-8, 185 pounds. He might still earn an outside role opposite Kyle Fuller, but do achieve that goal he must at the very least outperform free agent pickup Alan Ball, who better fits the ideal description.

If the words of new coach John Fox are any indication, that's unlikely to happen.

"Dimension-wise, he's built like a nickel corner," Fox said. "He's played it before."

Jennings has started all but three games over the last seven years.

Report: Bears CB Tim Jennings had arthroscopic knee surgery
by Jason Butt |

Bears cornerback Tim Jennings underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his knee, according to a report from ESPN Chicago.

Early on Friday, Jennings posted a photo of himself on Twitter and made mention of a possible surgery, though that post was later deleted. The procedure isn't considered serious and won't have any lasting effects that would keep Jennings out of offseason activities.

Jennings totaled 66 tackles, eight pass breakups and one forced fumble during the 2014 season.
