If you were making a list of careers little kids dream of pursuing when they grow up, both NFL player and FBI agent might make the list. Charles Tillman already accomplished one of those. Now, he’s working on the other.
TIllman, who retired from the NFL following the 2015 season, is currently in training to become an FBI agent, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.
And Tillman is getting in just under the wire. Prospective agents must be at least 23 years old to begin training, but they also must be younger than 37. Tillman is 36, with his next birthday coming up in February.
The FBI would not confirm the report.
We don’t speak about personnel matters,” agent Garrett Croon, on behalf of the Chicago bureau, told the Tribune.
Allen dominated the touches in the second half, as Terrance West was reportedly dealing with a soft tissue injury. The USC product took advantage of his opportunity, as he was the biggest key to the Ravens offense against the Browns.
Allen has been shoved into a bigger role in the offense after Danny Woodhead was placed on IR. Woodhead got barely any playing time this season before getting hurt, but for the short while that Woodhead was on the the field, the Ravens offense showed some promise. Allen is now serving as the Ravens top pass catching back, a roll he has done well in thus far.
With Terrance West now dealing with a soft tissue injury, we could see even more of Allen in West’s place. With a Ravens backfield that has been dealing with a ton of injuries (Woodhead, Kenneth Dixon, and West), Buck Allen is finally getting his chance to truly break out.
