Bears not expected to franchise tag CB Kyle Fuller

The franchise tag for cornerbacks is expected to be around $15 million, which is a nice upgrade for Fuller after making just more than $3 million in 2017.

The Chicago Bears have applied the transition tag to pending free agent cornerback Kyle Fuller, according to multiple reports.

Chicago used the transition tag on Fuller, giving him a guaranteed salary of nearly $13-million for 2018 and the ability to match any offer sheet he signs with another team. It also guarantees the original club the right of first refusal to match any offer the player might receive from another team.

The franchise tag would have cost the Bears $14.975 million (average of the top five CB salaries) for Fuller this year. If the Bears refuse to match, they would receive no compensation.

Fuller has 159 tackles and eight interceptions in 48 career games with the Bears. This year, Fuller had 22 passes defended for the Bears and grew into the sort of lockdown role on the outside that the Bears pictured when they invested such a high pick. He was fourth on the Bears in total tackles with 68 and was one of only two National Football League players with at least 65 tackles and 20 pass breakups.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Everett was set to become a restricted free agent this offseason. Since they decided not to exercise the fifth year option for their former first round pick, Fuller had the chance to hit the free agent market next week-that is, if the Bears decided not to tag him.

Fuller, 26, thrived as a rookie, tallying four interceptions and 10 passes defensed as a 14-game starter.
