Buccaneers declared CB Tim Jennings, OT Reid Fragel, QB Ryan Griffin, DT Tony McDaniel, TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, WR Russell Shepard and FS Keith Tandy inactive for Week 7 against the Redskins.

Jennings wasn't listed on the injury report so it looks like he's a healthy scratch. The veteran had started the Bucs' previous three games at corner. Johnthan Banks (knee), Bruce Carter (thigh), Chris Conte (ankle), George Johnson (ribs), Logan Mankins (groin), Gerald McCoy (shoulder), Evan Smith (ankle) and Luke Stocker (hip) are all active.

Bucs signed CB Tim Jennings.

GM Jason Licht announced the deal during the team's fourth preseason game. A veteran corner who has a history with both coach Lovie Smith and DC Leslie Frazier, this signing made too much sense not to happen. Licht hinted Jennings could replace Sterling Moore in the slot.

According to Pewter Report, free agent CB Tim Jennings received a contract offer from the Buccaneers.

He left without signing, suggesting the Bucs' offer didn't meet what Jennings is seeking. Jennings has a history with both coach Lovie Smith and DC Leslie Frazier, making a deal more likely than not, even if Jennings needs more time to accept that his NFL value is low. Jennings has yet to take any other visits.

Free agent CB Tim Jennings left his meeting with the Buccaneers without a contract.

This is somewhat of a surprise considering how much sense a reunion with ex-coach Lovie Smith makes, but it does not mean a potential deal is dead. Jennings will find a new home in the very near future, and it would be surprising if it were not Tampa.

Free agent CB Tim Jennings is visiting the Buccaneers today.

The only thing shocking about this is it did not happen sooner. Jennings played for Bucs coach Lovie Smith for three years in Chicago and is well versed in the Cover 2 defense Smith likes to employ. This deal should get done.

Bears released CB Tim Jennings.

The writing was on the wall when Jennings was playing deep into the fourth quarter of Saturday's preseason game against the Bengals. Jennings started the Bears' first two preseason games, but was generally ineffective and played behind Alan Ball and Sherrick McManis last night. Jennings started all but six games during his five years in Chicago, earning Pro Bowl berths in 2012 and 2013. Only 31, Jennings will certainly get a look from corner-needy teams.

Bears CB Tim Jennings pleaded guilty to reckless driving in order to resolve his January 2015 DWI charge.

Jennings was pulled over while going 100 mph on a Georgia highway. The cops said his breath smelled of alcohol, but Jennings said he stopped drinking 10 hours earlier and was rushing to a parent/teacher conference. The plea means he will only serve 12 months' probation and must complete 40 hours of community service. It's unclear if the NFL will step in here since Jennings avoided a guilty plea on the DWI charge.

Bears CB Tim Jennings recently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery.

It was reportedly a "simple clean-out," and Jennings is expected to be fine in a matter of weeks. A Pro Bowler in 2012 and 2013, Jennings took a huge step back in 2014 and he is now 31 years old. Jennings was also popped for DUI, reckless driving, and speeding in Georgia just after the season.

Bears CB Tim Jennings was arrested on charges of DUI, reckless driving, and speeding in Gwinnett County, Ga.

It's Jennings' first run-in with the law since entering the league in 2006. Jennings may be subject to discipline via the league's personal-conduct and substance-abuse policies. He started all 16 games this past season and graded out as an average cover corner at Pro Football Focus. However, Jennings was strong in run support. He has three years left on his contract.

Bears LCB Tim Jennings will man the slot in sub-packages this season.

The Bears toyed with the move in the offseason, and made it official during camp. Coming off a strong 2013, Jennings will remain outside opposite Peanut Tillman in the Bears' base defense. First-rounder Kyle Fuller will kick outside when Jennings lines up at nickel.
Thu, Aug 21, 2014 02:00:00 PM

Bears LCB Tim Jennings is spending time at nickel back in OTAs, and could man the slot in sub-packages this season.

Jennings is coming off back-to-back Pro Bowl seasons on the outside. "We’re going to try it out," Jennings said. "Hopefully it will be a full-time thing. It’s a little different for me. I’ve got to get back acclimated to playing nickel and playing two positions on defense." The move was brought about by the Bears' selection of CB Kyle Fuller at No. 14 overall. Signed to a four-year, $22.4 million extension in January, Jennings will remain on the outside in non-nickel situations.
Tue, May 27, 2014 05:17:00 PM

Bears LCB Tim Jennings' four-year contract is worth $22.4 million and contains $11.815 million guaranteed.

In good shape under the cap, the Bears stuffed the first year with a $6.05 million roster bonus instead of a signing bonus, therefore avoiding any proration and/or "dead money" in future years. Jennings' base salaries will be manageable throughout the life of the contract. The $5.6 million annual average is quite reasonable. This looks like a team-friendly deal assuming Jennings doesn't suddenly fall off a cliff. He turned 30 two weeks ago.
Fri, Jan 3, 2014 01:47:00 PM

Bears re-signed CB Tim Jennings to a four-year contract.

Jennings was forced to step in as the Bears' top corner as Charles Tillman missed eight games. The 30-year-old handled himself exceptionally, grading out 15th among 109 qualifying corners per Pro Football Focus. With Tillman heading for unrestricted free agency, Jennings may very well be forced into the No. 1 corner job again.
Thu, Jan 2, 2014 11:02:00 AM

Bears RCB Tim Jennings triggered an escalator in his contract, raising his 2013 salary from $3.25 million to $4.25 million.

Jennings had a career year in 2012, swatting away 21 passes and racking up a league-best nine interceptions. Jennings graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 9 corner in the NFL, five spots behind teammate Charles Tillman. The 29-year-old is entering the final year of his contract.
