Tim Jennings is visiting with the Buccaneers today

Tim Jennings made a name for himself under Lovie Smith in the Tampa 2 defense, and now the former Chicago Bears cornerback could be reuniting with the head coach.

Today Tim Jennings is in Tampa Bay for a visit according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Jennings played five seasons in Chicago, recording 16 interceptions, including a career-high nine in 2012. However, the nine-year veteran was coming off an off year, during which he played a full 16-game slate without a pick. To make matters worse, Jennings was arrested on charges of speeding, reckless driving and driving under the influence in January. He also underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in the offseason.

For what it’s worth, Jennings was ranked as the 25th best cornerback in 2014 by Pro Football Focus. Though he’s far better in the run game than in coverage, according to PFF’s grading, he can still start in this league and shouldn’t have a hard time finding a new landing spot.
