PewterReport adds that a league source has informed them that Jennings is not facing discipline from the NFL for his DWI arrest from back in January.
Jennings told Josina Anderson yesterday that he’s willing to play for a team that’s not considered a Super Bowl contender and help to develop younger players.
Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that the Buccaneers are hosting former Bears CB Tim Jennings for a visit on Tuesday.
It’s worth mentioning that Jennings played for Lovie Smith, and the Bucs could use some cornerback help.
Jennings is coming off of knee surgery and there’s a new regime in Chicago, so it appears as though they’re willing to give him an early opportunity to catch on with a new team.
Jennings, 31, he had three years remaining on his four-year, $22.4 million contract that included $11.815 million guaranteed when the Bears cut him loose a few days ago.
Field Yates reported that although, Jennings’ $4.4M salary for 2015 was fully guaranteed, the contract includes offset language, which means the Bears will free up cap space once he signs with another club.
In 2014, Jennings appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and recorded 50 tackles, a fumble recovery and seven pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 25 cornerback out of 108 qualifying players.
