Bears apply transition tag on CB Fuller

Bears not expected to franchise tag CB Kyle Fuller

The Chicago Bears have placed the transition tag on veteran defensive back Kyle Fuller, giving them a chance to match any offer he might receive in free agency.

The franchise tag would have cost the Bears $14.975 million (average of the top five CB salaries) for Fuller this year.

Oakland trotted out one of the worst secondaries in football in 2017. 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. Now the Bears should be able to hold onto him, and they'll save a little money compared to what they would have paid with the franchise tag.

Fuller recorded 67 tackles, two interceptions and 22 pass breakups this past season, one year after sitting out the entire 2016 campaign after undergoing a knee scope in the summer.

The team gets no compensation if they choose not to match.

While Amazon doesn't say how many members Prime has, those customers usually spend more and buy more frequently than non-members. One Morgan Stanley survey pegged the average annual income of Prime members at $87,000.

He is the third of four brothers to play in the NFL.

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.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Everett was set to become a restricted free agent this offseason.

Although Amukamara has been a solid starter for the past six seasons, Fuller clearly was the better player in 2017.

A first-round draft pick in 2014, Fuller appeared in all 32 games over his first two seasons and had 19 passes defensed with six interceptions.
