FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV) -

Washington Redskins' defensive back Kendall Fuller had a bit of a back-and-forth night on Tuesday.

The third-year cornerback, coming to the Kansas City Chiefs in a reported trade that would send quarterback Alex Smith to the Redskins, went through a series of emotions on social media Tuesday as news swirled about the move.

Fuller, a is part of the haul coming to the Chiefs, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

When news first broke, Fuller took to Twitter to try to assure fans that he would be staying in Washington, even if he wasn't 100-percent certain.

In a second tweet, Fuller nearly guaranteed his status in Washington.

Few things are guaranteed in life, a lesson quickly learned by Fuller.

By the end of the night, Fuller had changed his tone and expressed his excitement about joining the Chiefs.

Fuller was drafted by Washington in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft. In 2017, he played in all 16 games for the Redskins, recording 43 tackles, four interceptions and one forced fumble.

The trade was originally reported Tuesday and when finalized, would send Smith to Washington and Fuller and a third-round pick to Kansas City.

Neither team has made an official comment about the trade. League rules mandate that the trade cannot be made official until March 14.
