(CBS) In an interview with the Mully and Hanley Show on Friday morning, new Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller said he’s capable of playing safety if that’s what’s needed.

“I feel like I’m a versatile player, so I feel I can be that if I have to,” Fuller said. “As far as getting lined up, making calls, being able to tackle and coverĀ up and be physical.

“I’m definitely a great athlete, ever since I was a little kid. I’ve used that to my advantage all my life. I plan on continuing to do that and continuing to get better.”

Fuller only played cornerback and nickelback at Virginia Tech, but Bears general manager Phil Emery lauded him for his physicality and versatility, and with the Chicago’s safeties being a weakness last season, the possibility of a transition has been a question on the minds of many.

Only time will tell how it plays out, but Fuller is ready to get the fun started. He also added he’d like to play special teams for the Bears.

“I take pride in special teams, playing under coach (Frank) Beamer at Virginia Tech, that’s something I’ve done since my freshman year,” Fuller said. “You could definitely see me on special teams.”
