Chiefs made offer to Kyle Fuller

Per a report, the Kansas City Chiefs made an attempt to bring the Fuller family reunion to the metro area, but fell short.

Chicago Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller was assigned the transition tag this offseason by his team, which meant that any NFL team could sign him to an offer sheet, but the Bears retained the right to match any offer. The Green Bay Packers signed Fuller to an offer sheet this past week, but reports surfaced that he had turned down an offer prior to accepting the Packers’.

Local Chicago beat writer, DeVante Tidwell, reported that the initial offer came from KC. According to Tidwell’s report, the offer from the Packers gave Fuller more leverage and control, which was a top priority for him through the negotiations.

In the end, Fuller’s pact with the Packers was matched by the Bears, so Chicago has the cornerback on a 4-year, $56 million deal.
