Jennings and Bowman Ready to Battle for the Left Corner Job

The Chicago Tribune reports that Tim Jennings and Zack Bowman appear to be ready to battle for the left corner job.

No one is going to settle into the starting cornerback job opposite Charles Tillman and get too comfortable. The Bears have made a change at that position in each of the last four years, and they’ve told Tim Jennings, the primary 2010 starter, and Zack Bowman, the primary 2009 starter, that they will have a full-scale competition for the job. Whether Jennings can halt the regular turnover remains to be seen. He took over the job from Bowman in Week 4 last season and finished the year, but Bowman still spelled him on occasion and wound up playing 21.9 percent of the defensive snaps. “The best man plays,” defensive backs coach Jon Hoke said. “That’s what we’re looking for.” Bowman lost the job after the Week 3 win over the Packers when he gave up some plays.
