Report Kyle Fuller not expected to get franchise tag from Bears

The Bears used the transition tag on Fuller, allowing the team to continue to negotiate a long-term deal without the risk of losing him entirely to free agency.

The transition tag will allow Chicago to match any offer that comes in and will net Fuller at least $12.97 million in salary this season from the team.

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 Bears have come up with a more creative and less expensive way of keeping free-agent cornerback Kyle Fuller. If the Bears refuse to match, they would receive no compensation. The transition tag also affords the Bears more time than the July 15 franchise tag deadline to hammer out a long-term deal with the DB. His 22 pass breakups were tied for second in the National Football League, including six in Week 16, the most by any player in one game in 2017.

Cold and Quiet with a few flurries
The precipitation Wednesday could be snow, rain or a mix, depending on the temperature, Accuweather said. It will remain sunny and dry with high temperatures reaching the 60s by Thursday & Friday .

He is the third of four brothers to play in the NFL. This isn't a surprise because it creates a hard situation to get a long-term deal done and, well, that's probably too rich for Fuller.

"Kyle is a player we value", said general manager Ryan Pace.

However the Bears do it, they know they need to keep Fuller or risk adding cornerback to the list of positions already in need of upgrade in the offseason.

Fuller, 26, was set to become an unrestricted free agent before the Bears made the move. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will return in 2018, and now so will Fuller. He collected three interceptions and two forced fumbles in his first three games of his rookie season.
