I’m sure a lot of Chicago Bears fans would rather be reading about their team’s success instead of the messy storm that is currently swirling around the franchise.
The team is off to a slow start, fans are announcing that their quarterback Justin Fields is “not the guy,” and now one of their coaches apparently resigned effective this morning.
Things are still pretty murky, and the story is still developing, but it does seem as though it is confirmed that Alan Williams, the defensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears, stepped away from the team this morning. Based on some sources, it sounds like this whole thing could be quite the scandal, and this might just be the tip of the iceberg.
And though that is pretty shocking, the part of the story that everyone is really getting hung up on is the fact that former Chicago Bears player Charles “Peanut” Tillman is an FBI agent, and allegedly told the higher ups in the Bears’ front office about the house raiding of defensive coordinator Alan Williams.
Coach Eberflus was reportedly in tears learning the news:
Chicago Bears Charles Peanut Tillman who is currently an agent in the F.B.I. informed Chicago’s upper management including HC Matt Eberflus, GM Ryan Poles, and President Kevin Warren about DC Alan Williams’ house being raided. 👀#Dabearspic.twitter.com/C5jJXgareo
The same account that posted that initial story went on to report the reasoning for Williams’ house being raided, saying:
“The FBI raided Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Alan Williams home due to some very serious allegations.
The sting found some extremely sensitive ‘content’, and Williams will most likely never coach again for Chicago or any NFL team, ‘for the rest of his life.'”
A wild story indeed, if everything that is coming to light is true, but still, all anyone can talk about on social media is how shocked they are that Charles “Peanut” Tillman, the defensive player known for the “Peanut Punch,” is an FBI agent:
I can’t stop picturing Charles Tillman peanut punching doors open on FBI raids…
