At the end of a quiet first day, the Redskins made a free agency splash, reaching an agreement to sign their former draft pick, cornerback Kendall Fuller.

The news was first reported by Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports and was later confirmed by ESPN's John Keim.

Washington's third-round pick in 2016, Fuller played his first two NFL seasons with the Redskins before being dealt to Kansas City in the Jan. 2018 traded that brought quarterback Alex Smith to Washington.

Fuller helped seal the victory for the Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV earlier this year, intercepting Jimmy Garoppolo on the 49ers' final offensive drive.

The deal won't become official until the new league year begins on Wednesday. Teams are allowed to negotiate new free agent contracts now in the NFL's legal tampering window.

NFL Media reports Fuller's deal is for four years and $40 million.

The Redskins also re-signed linebacker Jon Bostic to a two-year deal earlier Monday and landed former Falcons guard Wes Schweitzer to a reported three-year, $13.5 million deal.
