Packers reportedly sign Bears CB Kyle Fuller to an offer sheet

In the end, the Packers probably gave the Bears a big hand in getting a long-term deal done with their top cornerback. Randall played the most snaps of any Packers cornerback last season. According to a tweet by NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the word is that the Bears will choose to match the Packers' offer.

The Bears the face the possibility of letting Fuller go to their NFC North rival if they don't match the offer.

Chicago placed the transition tag ($12.9067 million) on Fuller and has five days to match the Packers' offer. However, the Packers have obviously beaten them to the punch. The transition tag had the Bears already on the hook for $13 million (an average of the top 10 salaries at the position), as opposed to $2 million more for the franchise.

There was some skepticism regarding the Packers going after Kyle Fuller.

Well, well, well, things certainly got interesting for the Chicago Bears in free agency. If the Chicago Bears had allowed the Green Bay Packers to sign Kyle Fuller away they would have looked to replace him in the upcoming National Football League draft. He inks a contract that makes him one of the highest-paid players at cornerback. The Bears may still decide on selecting a cornerback with the No. 8 pick, however, they will have Kyle Fuller for the foreseeable future. There is no point for the Packers to rear load the contract to affect the Bears cap when Trubisky becomes a free agent because that money won't be guaranteed so the Bears could just restructure with Fuller with more guaranteed dollars if he's worth keeping, or let him walk once the deal runs out of guaranteed money if he's not. The Packers now have to figure out how to fix their hole at cornerback.

Fuller rejoins recently re-signed Prince Amukamara in what could be a solid secondary next season, especially with defensive coordinator Vic Fangio back calling the shots for new coach Matt Nagy.
