The Best Chicago Bears Of All Time By Jersey Number: #30-39


#32-Charlie Ford

Tenure: 1971-1973

The number 32 has been worn by 20 players since 1950 and a cornerback that played three years in Chicago in the early 1970s is the choice here. That’s how limited the options were, even with 20 to choose from. Did you really want Cedric Benson here? Charlie Ford did make an impact during his short tenure with the Bears. He had 14 interceptions over three years, including 7 in 1972 alone, which is good for a tie for eighth on the Bears all-time single-season interception list.

1971: 14 games, 5 INT, 46 yards, 1 fumble recovery

1972: 14 games, 7 INT, 104 yards, 1 fumble recovery

1973: 13 games, 2 INT, 50 yards, 1 fumble recovery

Runner-up: Lemuel Stinson
