The deadline to use the franchise and transition tags is 3 p.m. Tuesday and while general manager Ryan Pace said last week at the National Football League combine in Indianapolis that all options remained on the table, sources indicate the Bears are unlikely to tag Fuller.

The deadline to apply franchise and transition tags was at 4 p.m. ET. The exclusive franchise tag makes it so the player can only negotiate with his team, and the non-exclusive franchise tag makes it so if a player signs with another team, his original team gets two first-round picks. With plenty of money to spend - the Bears have the fourth-highest amount of cap space heading into 2018, per spotrac.com - the Bears have the resources that would seemingly dissuade teams from trying to construct an aggressive, exotic offer. Fuller is the most important pending free agent for the team and keeping him would fill one of the major holes on the roster. For Fuller, that means a 2018 salary of $12.971 million instead of $14.975 million this season.

The incident report said that when Davidson asked if they scared the woman, the friends claimed it was worse than that. This comes a few days after President Trump suggested arming teachers, to protect students against school shooters.


The only other corners on the current roster are Marcus Cooper and Cre'Von LeBlanc. Bears general manager Ryan Pace announced last April they were not picking up the 26-year-old's fifth-year contract option on his rookie deal.

Fuller is a coveted cornerback who enjoyed a very strong contract year last year for the Bears after missing the entirety of the 2016 season due to a knee injury and subsequent recovery. But, after being called out by defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Fuller bounced back with his best season. He had four interceptions, 10 pass deflections, three forced fumbles, and 64 tackles.
