Bears apply transition tag on CB Fuller

The transition tag works differently than the more traditional franchise tag. Given the flexibility that the transition tag allows, it's easy to see why Pace opted for it instead of the franchise tag to keep Fuller around.

The Bears had a mostly forgettable 2017, going just 5-11 which included a quarterback change from Mike Glennon to Mitchell Trubisky.

But there was a bright spot: Chicago's defense, which ranked in the top 10 in points and yards allowed.

If Fuller stays in Chicago, he'll have another year working with defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. He's unlikely to get the franchise tag which could open up the bidding to other teams, according to a report from Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

Fuller gets the tag after bouncing back from injury in 2017.

Some have wondered if Fuller would want to return after the lost 2016 season when he sat out after arthroscopic knee surgery. They shouldn't have much trouble matching an offer and keeping Fuller around.

Bears general manager Ryan Pace expressed interest in retaining Fuller at last week's National Football League scouting combine. He started 30 games in his first two seasons out of Virginia Tech and had six interceptions and 129 tackles. His second season wasn't almost as productive, but he still led the team in interceptions for the second straight year. That changed a whole heck of a lot this past season. Knee injuries are notorious for ruining careers, and at a position like cornerback, they're especially hard to come back from because of the moment required for the position.

Fuller has had an up-and-down career since the Bears made him a first-round selection in the 2014 draft.
