Will Fuller has signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins reported by Adam Schefter.

The deal is worth $10 million with a lot of incentives included. Given their relatively large amount of cap space going into the offseason, this move is Miami’s first big splash signing. Fuller is brought in to help develop the young Tua Tagovailoa. After DeVante Parker and Preston Williams struggled with injuries in his rookie season, Tua needs all the help he can get from his receiving corps.

Fuller’s 2020 campaign started off hot, garnering 879 yards and 8 touchdowns in 11 games before a season-ending suspension. He will look to bounce back on a Miami team where he will get ample opportunities. Not only will he be featured in the offense, but he will also open up the field for DeVante Parker and other pass-catchers.

Fuller is a big play waiting to happen whenever he is on the field. Unfortunately, being on the field is what he struggles with the most. Since coming into the league in 2016, the burner out of Notre Dame has missed 22 games due to injury, including a dreaded ACL tear in 2018. When on the field, the deep-threat brought the Houston offense to another level through his own play and opening up the field for other receivers. Deshaun Watson averaged over 30 fewer yards and almost a touchdown less per game when Fuller missed time.

The Houston Texans on the other hand lose yet another playmaker. After DeAndre Hopkins, JJ Watt, and now Fuller, Deshaun Watson’s chances of remaining in Houston are dwindling.

Fuller was in trade talks right before the 2020 trade deadline with a deal almost landing him in Green Bay, so it comes as a slight surprise that he wasn’t signed by them.
