What are the Chicago Bears going to do with Kyle Fuller?
The Chicago Bears signed two corner backs in the offseason and with the shown character of Kyle Fuller it could spell doom for his career in Chicago
Kyle Fuller has a problem with the Chicago Bears. The 2014 first round pick out of Virginia Tech might not have a spot on the roster. He showed the ability to be a lockdown corner with great size and coverage ability in College. The problem is as we all know he has been injured since that time.
The first couple of seasons showed some promise and gave us some hope we might have found our starting corner. Kyle Fuller had himself an impressive rookie season. He came in guns blazing with 64 tackles and four interceptions with also 3 forced fumbles. The athletic corner was here. We all saw that this lock down rookie might have been the answer. In his sophomore season, there was some drop-off but I always expect it. That season Fuller had 55 tackles and two interceptions.
We all saw that he was inconsistent but there was def. upside to this young corner in the right system. Then we all saw 2016 come around where we saw what appears to be a major character flaw. Kyle Fuller maybe not the type you want in your locker room. He missed the entire season after undergoing a minor knee scope. I’ve actually had something like this done so sitting out the entire season doesn’t make any sense. Worst case you are out three months but Fuller really didn’t see any want to come back to the field.
Next came the damning what I would call insults from defensive coordinator Vic Fangio who said that Kyle wasn’t doing his part to make his return. Listen, every football player wants their coach to talk about them. It’s a sign that you are at least on their mind. It should be that you are working hard or that you made some great plays. You do not want your coach calling on your character. Definitely, don’t want him calling out your desire to play football because at that point he has already written you off.
But we all know the additions to corner will all but spell out that the Chicago Bears have moved on. He will most likely get his chance elsewhere if he can figure out if he wants to play again.
