Is Chicago Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller stock trending up or down?

2020 is going to be a defining season for Kyle Fuller. At age 28, he is now right in the heart of his prime, with his next two years being arguably his physical peaks. Beyond that, 2021 will be the last year on Fuller’s contract, and he will likely be looking to put up a good 2020 and earn an extension.

Lastly, a corner who has had continuity in knowing that Prince Amukamara will have a new running mate for the first time. It should not be a huge deal, but with a rookie or lower end veteran across from him, there will be more burden on any mistakes he makes.

Still, it is hard to look at his offseason stock as trending anywhere but up. Sure, continuity in the secondary and communication with two new names will take time. However, beyond that things are pointing up.

He is in his prime, he has money on the line, and while you can admit he has more pressure to lead the secondary, that also is a role he earned. The Bears look at him as a leader and likely see a little Fuller in Jaylon Johnson, which is why they drafted him. They are hoping to have two Fuller-like athletes at cornerback.

This is more responsibility but that is a good thing for Kyle Fuller. A strong season will comfort the Bears into extending him and leading him to a path of becoming a player who was drafted by the team and stayed through retirement. His stock is still rising.
