Charles Tillman did not force any fumbles in Monday’s practice, but the Pro Bowl cornerback displayed his ball skills nevertheless, breaking up three passes in team drills.
“He’s a very skilled athlete,” said defensive coordinator Mel Tucker. “He’s very competitive, he’s super smart, he really knows what he’s doing out there and he’s very, very consistent. What you see is what you get. He’s going to do it every time. He’s going to compete at a high level, and those are the kinds of guys you can win with and they’re fun to coach.”
In Monday’s practice, Tillman forced an incompletion by arriving at the same time as the ball and drilling running back Armando Allen. The 11-year veteran later broke up passes intended for receiver Earl Bennett on back-to-back plays.
“[Tillman] is a good veteran, a leader,” Tucker said. “The guys look up to him and he sets a good example on and off the field for us, so it’s really a privilege when you get a chance to coach guys like that.”
