The Green Bay Packers have signed Chicago Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller to an offer sheet Da'Norris Searcy Jersey , a person familiar with the situation said Friday.

Fuller is the Bears' transition player, and the tag gives Chicago five days to match the offer.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither team has announced the signing. The Chicago Tribune first reported the move.

The 26-year-old Fuller is considered a key player for Chicago's defense. The tag announced last week guarantees Fuller $12.9 million next season.

The Bears the face the possibility of letting Fuller go to their NFC North rival if they don't match the offer.

The Packers on Friday also officially announced the signing of free agent Jimmy Graham, the 6-foot-7 tight end who gives quarterback Aaron Rodgers a big target over the middle. Graham has 556 catches and 69 touchdown receptions in eight NFL seasons.

He posted a heartfelt note on Twitter on Friday thanking the Seahawks organization and teammates for his three years in Seattle.

Graham's arrival in Green Bay coincided with the release of longtime receiver Jordy Nelson, who has since joined the Oakland Raiders.

This has been a busier-than-normal start to the offseason for Green Bay in Brian Gutekunst's first year as general manager. The Packers have also signed defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson and acquired backup quarterback Deshone Kizer from the Cleveland Browns for cornerback Damarious Randall.
Denzel Ward gets things done quickly.

One of the rookie cornerback’s first goals was to earn a starting job. Check. Next was paying off the mortgage on his mom’s house. Check. Then it was signing his NFL contract and reporting to training camp on time. Done.

Now he wants to help the Browns win. OK, that may take a minute.

But to this point, nothing has slowed the speedy Ward, who has impressed his teammates and Cleveland’s coaches. After an eye-popping spring camp, the former Ohio State All-American has joined the first-team defense, and the Browns believe the 21-year-old is ready for the weekly challenge of covering elite wide receivers.

Ward’s up for it.

”I’m very comfortable in who I am as a player,” he said Friday without the slightest trace of arrogance. ”I’m a fast player.”

While Baker Mayfield Jordan Poyer Jersey , the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback selected first overall by the Browns, waits his turn behind Tyrod Taylor, Ward’s already on the field.

And there’s no reason to think he won’t stay there.

Ward stood out during the Browns’ first training camp practice on Thursday with several solid plays. He made a leaping interception down the sideline in front of three-time Pro Bowler Jarvis Landry during 11-on-11 drills, and Ward looked comfortable whether in goal-line situations or third-and-longs.

He did get beat on a go route by fellow rookie Antonio Callaway, who made a late adjustment to haul in a deep pass from Mayfield.

The catch drew applause from Browns fans, but Ward said the reception probably wouldn’t have counted in a game.

”I think he stepped out of bounds,” Ward said, smiling. ”They caught it with the camera from over here, so they didn’t really see it, but that was a great catch. He can definitely run.”

So can Ward Pat McAfee Jersey , whose quickness and ability to play man-to-man ”press” coverage is what made him so appealing to the Browns, who surprised many draft experts by taking him so high after he was projected to be picked later in the first round.

His high profile notwithstanding, Ward has shown a willingness to work and improve since the day he arrived.

”He’s pretty quiet off the field,” said linebacker Christian Kirksey. ”He’s not a person that is going to sit there and just talk all day. He’s going to do his job. He’s going to do it to the best of his ability. He’s very coachable. I believe that once he really gets comfortable with his role of being a lockdown corner, I think that the sky’s the limit for him.”

Ward has immersed himself in Cleveland’s playbook, and beyond watching daily practice film, he’s been taking a peek at tape of some future opponents.

The Browns open the season on Sept. 9 against Pittsburgh, which means Ward will make his regular-season debut against Steelers star Antonio Brown, widely considered the league’s best all-around receiver.

”The game’s not too big for him,” coach Hue Jackson said. ”Those moments are not too big for him. He’s going to face some of the best receivers in the league. Think of the first game of the year Menelik Watson Jersey , playing Antonio Brown, the best guy on the planet. So you better have real thick skin, and he has that.”

It’s helped Ward to prepare for Brown that he’s been going head-to-head with Landry and Josh Gordon, who is currently away from the team to address health problems.

Ward said he’s not intimidated by any matchup.

”Those guys are elite players, great guys and players,” Ward said. ”But we all put our shoes and pants on the same way, and just come out here and work.”

Ward was the final member of Cleveland’s rookie class to sign, finalizing his four-year, $29 million contract on Wednesday a day before players reported.

The deal includes a $19 million signing bonus, and the financial security prompted Ward Taylor Moton Jersey , who grew up just outside Cleveland, to pay off the mortgage for his mother, Nicole. Ward’s father, Paul, died two years ago.

”My mom has done a lot for me,” he said. ”So whatever I can do to make things easier for my mom, I’m down to do it.”

He has everything covered.

NOTES: Greg Robinson, competing with Shon Coleman to replace Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas, was carted off with a head injury and will be evaluated. … LB Mychal Kendricks participated in team drills for the first time since undergoing offseason ankle surgery. He was signed as a free agent in June after winning a Super Bowl with Philadelphia. … The team signed DL Zaycoven Henderson and WR Blake Jackson.
