Bears match offer, sign CB Fuller to 4-year deal

Packers sign Kyle Fuller to offer sheet; Bears must decide whether to match

Say what you want about what the Packers did, the move itself is brilliant.

When it comes to National Football League free agent cornerback Kyle Fuller, the Green Bay Packers began a game of chicken with the Chicago Bears.

The Green Bay Packers took a shot at solving their cornerback conundrum when they signed Chicago Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller to an offer sheet - an offer sheet that the Bears reportedly matched immediately. The terms of the deal: four years, $56 million (with $18 million guaranteed). He struggled in 2015, then missed the entire 2016 season with knee issues and faced numerous training-camp challenges entering the 2017 season. They certainly have the salary-cap flexibility to do that.

Given that the top free-agent cornerbacks already have come off the board, it's not like the Packers will be losing out by waiting the week that the Bears have to match the offer. As a rookie in 2014, he was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week after getting two interceptions against San Francisco in Week 2.

The Packers have had rocky play at the cornerback position and earlier this month they traded Damarious Randall to the Browns further thinning their cornerback depth.

That number makes Cousins the highest-paid quarterback both in terms of annual money and guaranteed money. The New York Jets are working on a deal for Teddy Bridgewater , according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport .

Packers trading Damarious Randall to Browns for QB
For the Browns , the appeal is obvious: They get a talented cornerback with pedigree to add to a secondary that lacks playmakers. We all understand what happened in the Chicago game, but I thought from the Chicago game on, he played at a very high level.

The exact structure of the deal Fuller received will be interesting. One possibility is he lands an experienced, talented cornerback to pair with Kevin King.

Davon House, who returned to the team on a one-year deal last year, and Tramon Williams, who spent eight seasons with the Packers (2007 through '14), are both savvy veteran free agents and might be options as well.

In reality, Fuller will be all but guaranteed $29 million during the first two years of the deal.

Not only did Kyle Fuller convince the Bears around that he is a good cornerback, it was obvious that the Packers believed the same thing.
