According to a report from the Chicago Tribune, former NFL safety and Chicago Bears star Charles Tillman has graduated from the FBI’s training academy and is now working as an agent.

Tillman played 13 seasons in the NFL, 12 with the Bears, and retired in 2016.  The 37-year-old forced 44 fumbles during his playing career.

The Chicago Tribune reported Friday that Tillman had graduated and was working as an agent, adding that new agents are commonly placed in a two-year probationary period as they amass experience to help show them the ropes.

Per the Trib –

Tillman earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette before the Bears drafted him in the second round in 2003. He grew up in a military family — his father, Donald Tillman Jr., was a sergeant in the Army — and attended 11 schools from kindergarten through 12th grade.

Congrtulations, Agent Tillman.
