The NFL notified the Bears of the switch on Monday.
Jennings led the Bears with four interceptions, returning two for touchdowns. He also tied for the team lead with three forced fumbles and had one opponent fumble recovery.
Jennings has 13 interceptions over the past two seasons, second to Sherman's 16. He is the fourth Bears player to be picked for this year's Pro Bowl, joining running back Matt Forte and receivers Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall.
