It’s hard to believe that almost a year ago, both Fuller and Trevathan were sitting on injured reserve. Trevathan had suffered a serious injury to his patella and it was thought it would take a much longer time for him to come back from it, but he didn’t miss any time. He jumped right in, played well and has been doing well ever since.
There might be some animosity between the rest of the league and Trevathan for this hit on Davante Adams. That shouldn’t stop anyone from voting him to the Pro Bowl because he deserves the honor. He’s talented and one of the most important Bears’ defenders. Hopefully, he earns a Pro Bowl nod.
Kyle Fuller didn’t have the fifth-year option in his contact picked up last year. There were some who felt he could have come back following the knee surgery he had last year but he didn’t play because it was thought he didn’t have the desire to play. Perhaps he could have made it back from the knee injury, but he chose to wait it out until his knee was fully healed.
We may not know the whole story about what happened with Fuller last season. This season, he has redeemed himself and proven that he was worthy of the Bear’s number one pick back in 2014. He has made lots of great plays and is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL.
Game in and game out, Fuller continues to prove that he can hold up against some of the league’s better receivers and won’t give in to being picked on. He should be at least a Pro Bowl alternate if he can keep playing like he has been.
