The Bears have inched closer to signing their entire draft class after agreeing to a 4-year deal with first-round cornerback Kyle Fuller on Wednesday. The deal has a fifth-year option.
Only third-round defensive tackle Will Sutton remains unsigned.
Fuller, out of Virginia Tech, is expected to compete with Kelvin Hayden and Isaiah Frey for the nickel back spot. He also could be in the mix for a starting cornerback position, but isn’t expected to supplant veteran Pro Bowlers Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings.
