According to Ian Rapoport, the Bears could still trade Fuller before he’s officially released tomorrow if a team steps up with an offer for him.
Fuller has obvious ties to Vic Fangio from their time together in Chicago.
Fuller, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Bears back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $9,687,002 contract but Chicago declined his fifth-year option.
The Bears used the transition tag on Fuller in 2018, which allowed them to match the Packers’ four-year, $56 million offer sheet.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Fuller will free up $11 million of available cap space while creating $9 million in dead money.
In 2020, Fuller appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and recorded 65 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble and eight passes defended.
