Denver Broncos player no. 3: Kyle Fuller, CB
The reasons for the Denver Broncos wanting to sign Kyle Fuller as soon as he was cut by the Chicago Bears were definitely valid.
The team needed help at the cornerback position.
Fuller knew Vic Fangio’s system, and as a matter of fact, he thrived in it.
He was under 30 years old.
For just $9.5 million, I think pretty much everyone viewed this one-year move by the Broncos as a big-time steal. It turned out to be anything but.
Even being in the familiarity of Vic Fangio’s defense, Fuller was not good. From week one of the season to week 18, Fuller was getting cooked pretty much any time he was out on the field, whether he was playing outside or whether he was being asked to play in the slot.
It was a massively disappointing season for Fuller in Denver, but some team will undoubtedly take a shot on him as a reclamation project in 2022. Perhaps Fangio will give Fuller another shot wherever he lands, but even that might be a stretch considering the Broncos benched Fuller at one point this past season.
