The Baltimore Ravens have signed tank-man Kyle Fuller after letting slim-man Kyle Fuller go earlier this summer. Wait, what? Isn't that a little bit confusing? What type of dark game is in play!?
The devil is in the details, and the details here come down to the position each of the two Fullers plays.
The Ravens let defensive back Fuller go in free agency a few months ago, and they are now signing former Seahawks offensive lineman Fuller to their practice squad ahead of Week 2.
According to a report by Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic, the Ravens decided to add some dough to their depleted offensive line and conducted tryouts on Tuesday for four linemen leading up to Sunday's clash with Cincinnati.
The players attending the workout included Logan Stenberg, Kyle Fuller, Colby Gossett, and John Leglue, as indicated in a Tuesday personnel notice shared by the franchise with reporters asking for it.
Aaron Wilson of KPRC2 first reported the news on X (formerly known as Twitter), confirming the signing of veteran lineman Kyle Fuller by the Ravens to bolster their Practice Squad ahead of Week 2, with a potential move to the active roster looming.
Kyle Fuller, a seasoned lineman with prior stints (although not always playing) at the Texans, Washington, Dolphins, Seahawks, and Broncos, has joined the Ravens' practice squad. This move comes as he has participated in 51 career games, with 12 starts, adding versatility and experience to the team.
Fuller's journey began in 2017 when he was drafted in the seventh round by Houston. The lineman had his best years in Seattle following his arrival there ahead of the 2019 season, though he never appeared in a single game that year instead having to wait until 2020.
Fuller spent 2019 in the Seahawks' practice squad, from where he eventually earned a spot on the active roster. He ended up playing 40 games for Seattle in the 2020-22 span, starting 10 of those matchups.
The Broncos signed Fuller last March, but he found himself among their final roster cuts at the end of August. After nobody claimed him off waivers, he stayed in free agency so the Ravens could sign him on Tuesday without getting into any battle for the rights to land him.
The Ravens practice squad now includes another lineman in Fuller, as well as a new safety in Tuesday's other addition: safety Duron Harmon. Harmon, along with Fuller and most probably Melvin Gordon are expected to be called up to the active roster for Sunday's Week 2 matchup at Cincinnati.
