  • PFF Malcolm Butler is a solution to Colts cornerback problem

According to a report from CBS Sports almost a month ago, the Chicago Bears weren't planning to retain starting cornerback Kyle Fuller ahead of free agency.

The transition tag guarantees Fuller $12.971 million in 2018 (the average of the top 10 cornerback salaries), and it gives the Bears time to work out a long-term deal with their best cornerback from 2017. The exclusive franchise tag makes it so the player can only negotiate with his team, and the non-exclusive franchise tag makes it so if a player signs with another team, his original team gets two first-round picks. While it's still possible that Fuller moves on to a new organization, Chicago has applied the transition tag to Fuller and can retain him as long as they match any offer he receives. If they opt not match an offer sheet, they will get nothing in return. It's also a little cheaper than the franchise tag, which would've paid Fuller around $14.9 million this year. The difference is that the Bears would receive two first-round picks as compensation if he leaves.

Oakland trotted out one of the worst secondaries in football in 2017. He played in all 16 games, getting two interceptions, 22 pass deflections, and 60 tackles. Fuller then seemingly had a falling-out with the Bears, who declined his fifth-year option.
