Louisiana Ragin' Cajun Hall of Famer Charles "Peanut" Tillman will suit up for a new NFL team in 2015, joining another Cajun alum in the secondary.

Tillman, a two-time Pro Bowl cornerback who spent his first 12 seasons with the Chicago Bears, agreed to a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers today.

Joining Tillman in the Panthers secondary is former UL cornerback Melvin White, who expressed his excitement on twitter.


Tillman reunites with his old defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, now the head coach in Carolina. Rivera was Chicago's DC from 2004-2006
