Fuller will reportedly earn $18 million guaranteed after the Bears initially signed him to the transition tag worth a shade under $13 million.

Because of the uncertainty surrounding his health, the Bears declined to exercise the fifth-year option in Fuller’s contract for the 2018 season.

He proved to be healthy and productive in 2017, however, giving him a ton of negotiating power this offseason.

At just 26, Fuller is entering his prime and trending toward being one of the top corners in the league.

That made it paramount for the Bears to retain him, although they do have solid cornerback depth with Prince Amukamara, Bryce Callahan and Cre’von LeBlanc Troy Polamalu Jersey still in the fold.

Fuller has elite-level potential, though, and if Chicago can continue to build around him, he figures to be a cornerstone member of a contending team in the future.

The Jets’ bold move suggests they are interested in selecting a franchise quarterback with the No. 3 overall pick.

USC’s Sam Darnold, UCLA’s Josh Rosen, Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield and Wyoming’s Josh Allen are among the signal-callers who could be available to them.

Although New York re-signed veteran quarterback Josh McCown and brought in former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater as well, the Jets now have a chance to solidify their future under center if there is a quarterback they truly love in the 2018 class.

The move may also force the Cleveland Browns into taking a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick.

There was some thought that Cleveland would take Penn State running back Saquon Barkley first before taking a quarterback with its second first-round pick at No. 4, but New York’s trade up suggests the Browns will no longer have their pick of the quarterback litter at No. 4.
