The two sides first agreed to the deal in late January, but the trade couldn't be made official until the start of the new league year Wednesday. Fuller made a name for himself as an effective slot cornerback over two seasons in Washington and should instantly slide into a starting role with Kansas City. Over 16 games in 2017, Fuller recorded 55 tackles, 10 pass breakups, four interceptions and one forced fumble.
An agreement is in place to send Fuller to Kansas City, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Fuller is part of the same deal that sent quarterback Alex Smith to Washington. Heading into his third season, Fuller has accrued 97 tackles, 12 pass breakups and four interceptions through 29 career games. Fuller plays best while lined up in the slot, so he should continue to get plenty of opportunities in Kansas City, even with Darrelle Revis and Steven Nelson on board.
Fuller came on strong in his sophomore season and totaled 10 passes defensed and started six games. Bashaud Breeland is likely to head elsewhere in free agency, Quinton Dunbar recently signed a multi-year extension and veteran Josh Norman is signed through 2020, which likely leaves Fuller to slot in as Washington's primary nickel cornerback in 2018.
Fuller (foot) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Fuller was considered questionable to play with an undisclosed foot injury. He's coming off an eight-tackle, two-PBU performance against the Cardinals last week and could have another productive day against the Broncos' Trevor Siemian-lead offense.
