Despite bringing in some competition to compete for the starting spot opposite of Charles Tillman, it's beginning to look like Tim Jennings will enter the 2012 season as the starter. According to a story in the Chicago Tribune, Jennings is likely to emerge as the starter despite his benching at the end of last season:
Following the money, though, all signs point to Jennings, 28, being the starter opposite Charles Tillman, who is coming off his first Pro Bowl season.
"We have a good situation," Hoke said. "Tim played well for us last year. When you watched the tape, he did some good things. We'd like to have a couple more turnovers, and he knows that.
Jennings recorded 77 tackles and picked off two passes last season, which was just his second in Chicago. He has seven career interceptions in six seasons.
