Bears won’t pick up the option on Kyle Fuller’s contract

The Bears started the draft weekend with a major surprise, but wrapped up business Sunday with something that was clearly #asexpected.

Via John Mullin of, the Bears said they were not picking up the fifth-year option on 2014 first-rounder Kyle Fuller.

Fuller didn’t play last year because of knee problems, and the Bears signed free agents Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper this offseason.

The Bears didn’t seem thrilled with Fuller’s efforts to come back last year, when the window was open for him to be activated from IR. Now, it’s reasonable to wonder how long he hangs around at all.

    Trade him to the Jets for Richardson or Pryor.

    He would have definitely made a difference of 3-13…NOT. Cut, trade, dumpster fire, call it whatever you want Bears in rebuilding mode since they drafted “prospects” in Round 1 & 2 in 2017 draft.

    He won’t make it to training camp.

    It seemed this kid just never fit in. He did show promise during his rookie season, but for some reason he just never panned out.

    The Fullers are ballers. All of them. Kyle had injuries and was drafted by an inept franchise. He’ll get another contract somewhere and, if healthy, do well.

    The Fullers are ballers?……..Not this one. Sorry DPR. You must not have been watching.

    He’s still young and very talented. He’s the type of player who could still be a star with another team and will leave the Bears wondering what went wrong.
