Awesome: Charles "Peanut" Tillman Treats A Teacher

From Deadspin: The Bears’ Pro Bowl corner Charles Tillman was promoting his Cornerstone Foundation in a suburban Chicago runner’s shop, when he was approached by a teenaged girl.

Bears pass on Randy Moss... Good!

The Bears had a shot… but didn’t pull a trigger on Randy Moss. The Titans claimed him after more than half the NFL passed on him. I hope Tennessee steps up their lunch menu for him (ESPN).
