Home Bears NFC Notes: Bears, Giants, Redskins
- Jeff Dickerson believes former first-round CB Kyle Fuller could be on his way out of Chicago this summer.
- Fuller missed the entire 2016 season and the Bears have since bolstered their depth at cornerback with the signing of Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper.
- Chicago declined Fuller’s fifth-year option, which is another sign that they don’t view him as a long-term option.
- James Kratch of NJ.com admits that cornerback depth is a concern for the Giants as they prepare for the start of training camp.
- According to Kratch, there’s “almost no chance” of the Giants signing veteran CB Darrelle Revis, as it’s hard to see how they could or even would sign him to a contract.
- Revis is owed $6 million by the Jets, but there offsets with this figure, which means he’ll make that money whether he’s playing for a team or not.
- As for free agent CB Alterraun Verner, Kratch believes he’s a “more realistic option” for the Giants, as he’s played in the slot before and could be a cheap option for New York.
- Even so, Kratch wouldn’t be surprised to see the Giants stand pat and see what they have with their current options at cornerback.
- Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes that anything mentioned about the Redskins and franchise QB Kirk Cousins is just “noise” for right now.
- Florio says that the “safer guess” is that a deal won’t get done in the end, given that the Redskins haven’t shown a willingness get an agreement in place over the past two years.
- It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Washington leak their lasted rejected offer by Cousins if they can’t get a deal in place by the July 17 deadline, writes Florio.
