On Sunday, Rapoport reported that the Packers’ interest in Fuller dates back to the summer and could ramp up from here.
Fuller is in the final year of his deal and there’s a strong chance Houston won’t be able to re-sign him, so a trade makes sense. However, Rapoport noted that the Texans are trying to restock their draft picks and aren’t just giving the former first-round pick away.
Houston has fielded a ton of calls ahead of the deadline and the Texans have multiple receivers who could be on the move soon.
Fuller, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Texans back in 2016. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $10.164 million contract and stood to make a base salary of $1.83 million for the 2019 season when the Texans exercised his fifth-year option last offseason.
The option is worth $10.1 million for the 2020 season. Fuller will be an unrestricted free agent in 2021.
In 2020, Fuller has appeared in six games for the Texans and caught 31 passes for 490 yards and five touchdowns.
We’ll have more on Fuller and the Texans as the news is available.
