Report: Kyle Fuller Set To Hit Free Agency.

It looks like cornerback Kyle Fuller's time in Chicago has come to an end, at least that's what CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports. The reporter mentioned on Friday that the type of contracts available to Fuller during free agency will just be way too expensive for Chicago and according to his source, Fuller will not be returning to Chicago. Last week, the idea of franchise tagging Kyle Fuller came up, but of course that means paying Fuller for one year like a top 5 CB. That contract would project to be about $15.2million for the season eating up a huge chunk of the $41.2million of salary cap space available to the Bears this offseason. The situation backs Bears general manager Ryan Pace into a tough spot, the Bears have no depth at cornerback and adding talent during free agency will cost them a pretty big price anyways. The team has between February 20th and March 6th to decide if they'll slap Fuller with the franchise tag or not.
