Chicago Bears apply transition tag to cornerback Kyle Fuller

Chicago Bears apply transition tag to cornerback Kyle Fuller

After having a solid comeback 2017 season, the Bears have chose to place the transition tag on cornerback Kyle Fuller, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The Bears are projected to have $49.6 million in cap space next season if Fuller signs the transition tag, per Over the Cap.

The 26-year-old Fuller is considered a key player for Chicago's defense. That right of refusal gives the Bears the upper hand and will likely keep any teams from even entering into negotiations for Fuller knowing it could be time wasted on the free agent market while other options are being snatched up by competing teams. If the Bears refuse to match, they would receive no compensation.

Ryan Pace said at the NFL Combine that the Chicago Bears were going to be aggressive with the Kyle Fuller situation, and on Tuesday, the general manager made his move.

However, with his 2017 season and the team's lack of cornerback depth, Fuller has another chance at life with the Bears. "This allows us to continue to work together on a long-term deal". Their next two corners on the depth chart, Bryce Callahan and Cre'Von LeBlanc, have both played well but are better suited in the slot. He started 30 games in his first two seasons out of Virginia Tech and had six interceptions and 129 tackles.

Fuller showed promise in his first year back after having arthroscopic surgery on one of his knees in early August of 2016. Cooper's future with the Bears is under evaluation, as he had a disappointing 2017.
