Bears match Packers' offer sheet for Kyle Fuller

Kyle Fuller Reportedly Signs Packers Offer Sheet; Bears Have 5 Days to Match

The Green Bay Packers have signed Chicago Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller to an offer sheet, a person familiar with the situation said Friday. The compensation for a franchise-tagged player is two first-round draft picks, a prohibitive cost even when bidding on the league's biggest stars. That gives the Bears the right to match any offer Fuller gets, and the Bears have five days to make that decision.

Had the Bears given him the transition tag at $14.975 million, it would have all-but-guaranteed Fuller staying on the team for another year.

The Bears had put the transition tag on Fuller, who is coming off his best season in 2017.

Per a subsequent report from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Bears will match the offer sheet, which guarantees Fuller $18 million and pays as much as $56 million over four years. Fuller played 96 percent of the Bears' defensive snaps in 2017 and allowed a passer rating of just 69.0 on throws in his direction, per Pro Football Focus. Fuller gets paid like a top cornerback, and Pace doesn't get locked in for too many years of guaranteed money.
