Charles Tillman fumbles into retirement

Charles “Peanut” Tillman announced his retirement Monday, but it doesn’t look like he wants to give up on his fumble-forcing ways just yet.

In his announcement video titled “Peanut Punch”, Tillman went around and knocked various things to the ground in his everyday life on his way to hanging up the cleats. He went through his house, the gym and even a White Castle drive-thru forcing fumbles left and right before he clocks out for the final time.

He forces fumbles by his wife, kids and other members of his family and friends as the video goes on.

In 13 seasons with the Chicago Bears and the Carolina Panthers, Tillman had an incredible 44 forced fumbles. Since 2003, the closest defensive back to Tillman’s 44 is Charles Woodson, with 23.

Tillman did more than just strip the ball though, in 168 games, he had 911 tackles and 38 interceptions to go along with the 44 forced fumbles.

Happy retirement, Peanut.
