The Chicago Bears have released veteran cornerback Kyle Fuller.
Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Bears released Fuller because of a salary cap constraints.
With his release, the Bears suddenly have a big piece missing from their secondary that has kept them in games since 2018. Jaylon Johnson steps in as the next man up on opponents’ top wide receivers.
This move comes as a head-scratcher after the Bears signed quarterback Andy Dalton to a one-year deal worth $10 million. Meanwhile, former signal-caller Mitchell Trubisky signed a one-year deal worth $2.5 million with the Buffalo Bills.
Let’s take a look at the Bears On Tap crew on Twitter.
It’s been an unfortunate string of events for Bears fans as of late, and Fuller’s release certainly pours even more salt in the wound.
