The Chicago Bears don't plan to let Kyle Fuller get away -- not easily, at least. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the team will apply the transition tag to their talented young cornerback, per sources. Slapping the transition designation on Fuller means the Bears can match any offer the 26-year-old cover man might receive on the open market. The one-year tag is worth $12.971 million, down $2 million from the $14.975 million value of the franchise tag. Fuller was an iffy candidate for the franchise label, but the move keeps a valuable defender under lock and key as new head coach Matt Nagy organizes his defense for 2018.
