CB - DEN
Free agent DB Kyle Fuller has agreed to a one-year, $9.5 million deal with the Denver Broncos, which includes $9M fully guaranteed, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
Fuller was a cap casualty in Chicago as the team needed to free up space to bring in QB Andy Dalton. Denver is an ideal landing spot for the two-time Pro Bowler, who played under head coach Vic Fangio for four seasons in Chicago. He'll line up opposite of Ronald Darby to form a formidable corner duo.
The Bears have officially released All-Pro cornerback Kyle Fuller, according to the league's official transaction wire. He is now free to sign with another team at any time.
With Fuller officially free to sign elsewhere it will be interesting to see what team signs him, and how much money the elite corner will be offered. The Bears attempted to trade Fuller before releasing him but ultimately decided to move on once it became clear that no deal was going to come together.
Kyle Fuller, released by the Bears Thursday, is drawing interest from the Broncos, according to Mike Garafolo.
Vic Fangio, the Broncos Head Coach, coached Fuller, 29, 2015-2018 in Chicago when he was the team's defensive coordinator. The Broncos released de facto No. 1 cornerback A.J. Bouye ahead of free agency and though they signed Ronald Darby, signing Fuller would allow the 5-foot-9 Bryce Callahan to play solely in the slot this upcoming season.
The Bears are releasing cornerback Kyle Fuller as a cap casualty, according to Ian Rapoport.
The Bears are $7.590 million over the cap, according to Over The Cap, and releasing Fuller saves the team $11 million, with a $9 million dead money charge. Fuller was Pro Football Focus' 52nd-ranked cornerback last season. He joins fellow corners Adoree' Jackson and Malcolm Butler as late additions to the cornerback free agency market.
Kyle Fuller racked up seven tackles (six solo) during Thursday’s 31-24 win over the Cowboys.
Fuller has 69 tackles and three interceptions through Week 14. Fuller might not add anymore picks this season so owners in need of a boost at CB should look elsewhere.
