Landing spot for Kendall Fuller?

It's not just recruitment taking up the Washington Commanders' time this offseason. Those in power must also figure out what to do with their free agents. Some will be moved on swiftly. Adam Peters must also make a concerted effort to retain one or two who could make an impact under Dan Quinn.

Kendall Fuller falls into this category. The veteran cornerback was one of the few bright spots from an otherwise dismal campaign. Keeping him around should be among the team's top priorities, but he'll be a hot commodity if the Commanders let him test the market.

ESPN's staff writer Matt Bowen tabbed the Detroit Lions as an ideal landing spot for Fuller. This could give their secondary a boost as Dan Campbell looks to go one better and win the NFC conference championship in 2024.

"The [Detroit] Lions allowed 247.4 passing yards per game last season, sixth most in the league. But bringing in a perimeter corner like Fuller could boost the whole profile of the Detroit secondary. With 16 career interceptions (10 in his past four years with Washington) and the savvy technique to play both man and zone, Fuller is a good fit for Aaron Glenn's system."

Fuller's spent almost the entirety of his career in Washington since being drafted No. 84 overall out of Virginia Tech in 2016. He's deeply connected to the organization, but exploring other options to land on a contending team might also figure into his plans at this stage of the player's career.
