5. Kyle Fuller, cornerback
Whether he follows Fangio or not, I don’t see Kyle Fuller coming back to the Denver Broncos in 2022.
The decision to sign Fuller, at the time, was a very good one.
Under the age of 30 with an All-Pro season in the not-so-distant past, Fuller’s fit in Denver with Vic Fangio was obvious from the start.
Unfortunately, it hasn’t worked out.
Has Fuller been anywhere near what any of us hoped or expected him to be? I would say not even close.
It will be interesting to see if Fangio would even want him to follow him to his next spot, quite honestly.
Fuller’s experience in Fangio’s defense and his recent time on task as a nickel defender could actually work in his favor. That was a role Fuller had not played before, and Fangio asked him to do it in short order.
Actually, when Fuller was in the nickel might have been the best we’d see him this season, at least when it came to blitzing and attacking in the running game.
The Denver Broncos' 2021 season is going nowhere fast. Even though the 2021 season was a lost year, there are positives that cannot be ignored.
He’ll get another shot next season, likely on a one-year deal, and it wouldn’t be shocking at all to see it be with Vic Fangio, wherever Fangio is at.
