Packers sign RFA CB Fuller to offer sheet

How transition tag applies to Packers pursuit of CB Kyle Fuller

How transition tag applies to Packers pursuit of CB Kyle Fuller

Ranked No. 9 on Around The NFL's Top 101 Free Agents of 2018, Fuller is one of top defensive stars available after resurrecting his stalled career last season.

The Bears-Packers rivalry is heating up in March. Chicago also owned the right to match any offer from other teams, without any compensation coming its way if it were to pass.

The end result is that the Packers negotiated the deal for the Bears, at no cost to Chicago. The $14 million annual average ranks fifth among all cornerbacks - $10,000 per year behind Patrick Peterson - and the guarantee ranks eighth.

According to football analytics site Pro Football Focus, Fuller allowed a completion rate of just 51.3 percent and quarterbacks had a passer rating of 56.7 when throwing against him - the lowest among free-agent cornerbacks.

The Packers do enter next month's NFL Draft with 12 total picks, including the 14th overall selection and six picks in the first 150, so Gutekunst will surely use several at cornerback.

Congress MLAs suspended, 2 expelled for unruly behaviour in Telangana Assembly
The TRS government was considering whether to suspend the Congress members or to expel them from the House. Speaker Madhusudhana Chari stated that the punishment they were given is so less for what they did.

The 26-year-old Fuller is considered a key player for Chicago's defense. Fuller made such a good impression on the Bears' front office last season that the team chose to place the transition tag (courtesy of chicagobears.com) on him less than two weeks ago.

The Bears the face the possibility of letting Fuller go to their NFC North rival if they don't match the offer. Yes, Bears fans should be annoyed, but if it was reversed and Pace did this to the Packers, fans would be going insane. They have plenty of cap space to do so.

Well, well, well, things certainly got interesting for the Chicago Bears in free agency. The Bears may still decide on selecting a cornerback with the No. 8 pick, however, they will have Kyle Fuller for the foreseeable future. Instead, Fuller and the Packers agreed on a pretty reasonable deal that gave the Bears all the incentive in the world to match it. The Packers now have to figure out how to fix their hole at cornerback.

Kyle Fuller will not be wearing green and gold next season.
