That's a possibility now after Copperas Cove, Texas, renamed a street in honor of Bears cornerback Charles Tillman.

Charles Tillman Way was dedicated Friday in recognition of the Copperas Cove High School grad. Tillman, however, is not the first Copperas Cove native son to be honored with a street name. Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has his own boulevard. The debate continues over which is more prestigious, the way or the boulevard. The two streets intersect, by the way.

"I really am humbled and thankful that you guys allowed me to be an ambassador for Copperas Cove. I will continue to do my part and try and change as many lives as we can," Tillman said.
