Chicago Bears Release Kyle Fuller

The Chicago Bears have released veteran cornerback Kyle Fuller, per Ian Rapoport.

Fuller, a former first team All-Pro, is a cap casualty of an offseason with a shrinking salary cap. He was set to earn $20 million next season, a price tag that Chicago can no longer afford. By releasing Fuller, the Bears cleared $11 million of cap space.

Fuller was Chicago’s first round draft choice in the 2014 NFL Draft and has been a key defensive piece since. He has been especially good over the past three seasons, making it to two Pro Bowls. In 2020, he allowed just 55.4% of passes completed and an 89.8 passer rating when targeted.

Losing Fuller is brutal for a Bears team that lacks depth in the secondary. He has been a key contributor to the Bears strong defenses and it will be tough to find a player that can replace him. The spotlight will now be on second year player Jaylon Johnson to improve on a strong rookie performance and solidify himself as the top cornerback in Chicago.
