New Orleans Saints: Top 5 low-cost free agents to consider signing
CB, Kendall Fuller (Kansas City Chiefs)
Kendall Fuller is a young and promising cornerback. He was originally a part of the Washington Redskins but was acquired by the Kansas City Chiefs in the trade for Alex Smith. Fuller is in his fourth year in the NFL, all as a cornerback.
Fuller’s best quality is his versatility. Fuller has spent a good amount of time shadowing receivers in the slot. Fuller plays on both sides of the ball as a cornerback, which will benefit Marshon Lattimore and give him help on the opposite side.
Fuller has more potential than the fourth-year corner, Eli Apple. In 15 games started, Apple totaled just 58 tackles and four passes defended. Fuller only started four games for Kansas City this season but had 49 tackles and a sack.
Average that out and Fuller is at roughly 12 tackles per start while Apple is only at four. Because Kansas City didn’t utilize Fuller to his potential last season, there is a good chance that they don’t look to sign him back to the roster.
That will make Fuller one of the biggest steals of the cornerback free agency pool this year. Fuller makes roughly $781 thousand per year. That’s about $3 million less than Apple for better production per dollar.
