Report Kyle Fuller not expected to get franchise tag from Bears

The following year, Fuller once again played a full 16-game regular-season, tallying 54 stops in all, two interceptions and nine pass defenses. He'll have to prove his 2017 season wasn't a fluke, but Fuller's Bears future is much brighter than it was just a year ago.

The Bears chose to give cornerback Kyle Fuller the little-used transition tag before Tuesday's 3 p.m. deadline, leaving the former first-round pick with a $12.971 million price tag for 2018.

The tag guarantees Fuller a $12.971 million salary for the 2018 season and gives the Bears until July 16 to work out a long-term contract.

By using the transition tag, the Bears secure the right to match any contract offer Fuller might receive from another team. The tagging club is awarded no compensation if it chooses not to match. He's unlikely to get the franchise tag which could open up the bidding to other teams, according to a report from Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. He posted his best season a year ago, intercepting two passes and deflecting 22 more, while providing the physical tackling that first drew Emery to Fuller. 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.

The deadline to apply franchise and transition tags was at 4 p.m. ET. After a resurgent 2017 season, Fuller is expected to draw significant interest on the free-agent market as one of the top available cornerbacks. They shouldn't have much trouble matching an offer and keeping Fuller around.

The Bears are doing all they can to hang onto cornerback Kyle Fuller. He came back in 2017 and had another solid season, rehabbing his value. He started 30 games in his first two seasons out of Virginia Tech and had six interceptions and 129 tackles.
