Sources: Dolphins have signed CB Kendall Fuller to a two-year deal

The Miami Dolphins are signing Kendall Fuller to a two-year, $16.5 million contract, a source told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Fuller, considered the best free agent cornerback available, gives the Dolphins a potential starter to replace Xavien Howard, who was released by the team this week.

Fuller started 62 of a possible 66 games in his second stint with the Washington Commanders over the past four seasons, and made 10 interceptions — including two in 2023.

The coaches consider him a smart corner, who uses his eyes well and rarely gets out of position.

He started 15 matches last season, and missed the last two matches due to knee pain.

In 2022, he returned two of his three interceptions for touchdowns.

Washington selected Fuller in the third round of the 2016 draft, and he played a key role as a slot corner during his first two seasons. He was eventually traded to the Kansas City Chiefs after the 2017 season as part of a package to acquire quarterback Alex Smith.

Fuller, 29, played two seasons with the Chiefs, starting 19 games and winning a Super Bowl ring. He returned to Washington as a free agent in 2020, becoming a starter mostly on the outside.
