Broncos, Kyle Fuller agree to deal

Wild Card Round - Chicago Bears v New Orleans Saints

That was fast.

Just moments after the Bears officially cut cornerback Kyle Fuller, he has agreed to a contract with the Broncos.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that it’s a one-year, $9.5 million deal, including $9 million fully guaranteed.

The Broncos were always viewed as the favorites to sign Fuller, given his close connection to Denver head coach Vic Fangio, who was previously the defensive coordinator in Chicago. Still, it’s a surprise that the agreement happened this fast.

Fuller was slated to earn $14 million if he had stayed with the Bears this year, so he’s taking a significant pay cut, but he’s in a place where he knows he’s wanted, with a coach who knows how to bring out the best in him.

  1. I didn’t follow him much but if I recall, he was really good a few years ago. What happened? Or are the Bears just being the Bears?

  2. Must have already known what was on the table. Good deal, for both team/player.

  3. Finally, a deal that makes the broncos actually better. I was hoping for a 3 year type deal but I will take what I can get. They over paid for Darby, over paid for Shelby Harris, over paid for Justin Simmons, and they still were not any better than last year. Worse actually since they got a cheap replacement for Lindsay and let Demarcus Walker and Kareem Jackson go. This move actually shores up their secondary. They still need a safety, defensive line depth, and a MLB or 2 but I can finally see a little progress.

  4. Wish my Bears hadn’t cut him. He’s probably not the all-pro he was two or three years ago, but he’s still a very, very good zone CB. Why did we cut him and keep jimmy graham??

  5. The Bears are just being the Bears. Specifically Ryan Pace. Signing Andy Dalton over keeping Kyle Fuller is classic Pace.

  6. Uh, that was fast. Tamper much?

    Fuller’s always been good for some hard hits, but he had one interception last year and he routinely gave his WR the underneath route. I think that was more him than Pagano, because more than a few WRs ran past him.

    Ryan Pace has no idea how to manage the cap, that’s what happened. He’s still a great player but Pace recklessly signed Jimmy Graham, Trevathan, and Robert Quinn last year without thinking about what their future cap situation would look like

  8. Figured he’d be signed by Broncos or Chargers, given he played well in Fangio’s system.

  9. And with this move, Fullers chance of winning a ring actually went up. That’s how bad the Bears are looking right now.

  10. Renegotiate a better deal then trade him….again you let a player go for nothing, why why why ????

  11. Remember when Donkey fans said their D was so good it didn’t matter who the QB was they were going back to the bowl?
    Lol, good times

  12. cant believe denver didnt offer him GM rights….
    .

    Course they needed a QB, that’s why they drafted Lynch right after winning the SB but he became a complete bust.

  14. Fuller was terrible last season. There was no way he played well enough to earn that kind of dough. 1 interception, and watch the tape. He was always around but never made a play on the ball. never. Maybe that was due to Pagano’s defensive scheme, but C’mon. 1 interception?..Good luck Denver.

  15. Denver still a bad team since case keenum and look to be bad for a LONG TIME LOL

  16. I knew the moment Fangio left the Bears we were going to pay for it for years to come.

    Easy Chiefs fans, with the Best QB in the league, & you put up a whopping 3 FG’s in the SB, and that’s after not even going for 5 STRAIGHT DECADES before finally winning one.

    I mean, Jeff Driskel was able to put up more points than Mahomes so… where do we go from there?

  19. I see 4-5 games of bears being in NFC North. Multiple times he had the game changing interception opportunities but dude cannot hang on to interceptions. Overrated

  20. He was a very good corner for many years here. But last year he lost a step )small one) and the cap this years is causing this across the league. I have no problem as a Bears fan getting younger. Put the $ into the offense for once! Regardless best of luck to Fuller

  21. From what I saw, Chicago DBs got away with lots of non-calls when they committed pass interference when Fangio was the DC in Chicago.
