Charles Tillman was named the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year this weekend, a prestigious honor for all of Tillman's off-field work.
Tillman was a topic of discussion on Monday's SportsTalk Live, with the entire panel under the belief the Bears absolutely need to bring him back next season.

Tillman is currently a free agent. He missed half of 2013 with a triceps injury.
The SportsTalk Live panel tabbed Tillman as a mentor to young players and said it would be embarrassing for the Bears if they weren't able to bring the veteran back for 2014.
