As news of a mystery player involved in the trade that saw Alex Smith sent to the Washington Redskins, almost immediately speculation began about who it could possibly be. Names like Preston Smith and Su'a Cravens were suggested, but almost no one assumed it would be Kendall Fuller, least of all him. Sadly it was Fuller, and what followed was a live tweeting of the entire saga by the player himself. While at first he was confident it wasn't him, that assuredness slowly eroded away as much to surprise of everyone, the second-year cornerback was on his way to Kansas City. Speaking to Adam Schefter on his podcast, Fuller relived the evening as the events unfolded. "The funny part about it is I’m not usually on Twitter that much," Fuller told Schefter via Lisa Redmond of NBC Sports Washington. "When I was on there, I saw you come out with it, and somebody else come out with it, and I tweeted like, ‘Nah, I haven’t heard anything.’ Right after I tweeted that, my agent called me and told me about the trade. I was like, ‘Shoot, let me get off of Twitter for a little bit then.'" After a standout season which saw him rise to become arguably the NFL's best slot cornerback, it's understandable why questions were raised as to Fuller's inclusion in the deal.
