It didn’t take long for former Chicago Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller to find a landing spot in free agency.

Just an hour after Fuller’s release became official on the transaction wire, the Denver Broncos swooped in to sign Fuller to a one-year deal worth $9.5 million, including $9 million fully guaranteed, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

After word was leaked that the Bears were looking to part ways with Fuller to clear up salary cap space, Chicago tried to trade him to no avail. The Bears officially released Fuller on Saturday before the Broncos quickly signed him.

Fuller reunites with former Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio in Denver. Under Fangio in 2018, Fuller had his best season as a pro, which included a career-best seven interceptions.

Fuller was due to make $20 million in 2021, and the Bears saved $11 million in cap space by releasing him. Although, the move also leaves Chicago vulnerable at cornerback — and without a proven starter opposite second-year cornerback Jaylon Johnson.

On Friday, the Bears signed former Detroit Lions cornerback Desmond Trufant to a one-year deal, with the intention of him to replace Fuller.
