Bears CB Disputes Ford’s ‘Thug’ Comment

Bears_Tim_Jennings_2013Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings didn’t agree with the assertion — purportedly made in jest — that his team is a “bunch of thugs.”

Speaking at a charity dinner honoring Detroit receiver Nate Burleson, Lions vice chairman Bill Ford Jr. referred to the Bears as “thugs.” A team spokesman later informed the media that Ford was joking in his remarks.

“I heard,” Jennings said when asked about Ford’s comments. “What was he watching? I don’t know. Calling us bullies? I don’t think anyone in this world would probably agree with that. We’re far from it. I wish we were.”
