Zach Fulton looks to be leaving the Kansas City Chiefs in free agency. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Fulton is expected to land a multi-year deal in Houston when the new league year opens on Wednesday afternoon.
The #Texans are expected to sign interior OL Zach Fulton, formerly of the #Chiefs, to a deal that averages roughly $7.5M per year, source said.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 14, 2018
Fulton, 26, started 46 games for the Chiefs at different positions along the offensive line over four seasons with the club. The Chiefs originally acquired Fulton in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
I essentially look at this move as Jeff Allen 2.0. Allen left the Chiefs via free agency for Houston in 2016, and Kansas City eventually received a fourth-round compensatory pick for him in the following draft. I’d probably expect a fifth-rounder for Fulton, if the Chiefs are in line to receive picks next season.
