Dolphins released CB Chris Culliver.
Culliver opened the year on PUP and had been practicing the last three weeks, but didn't show enough progress to keep his roster spot. It's a surprise cut considering the state of Miami's secondary. With Mike Pouncey (hip) doubtful, the Dolphins promoted C Jake Brendel from the practice squad. Sat, Nov 19, 2016 03:35:00 PM

Date:

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Dolphins CB Chris Culliver (knee) is not expected to play this week against the Chargers.

Culliver clearly disagrees with the assessment after saying he expects to make his debut against San Diego, but players are often overly optimistic about their recovery timetables. Culliver was activated off the PUP list Monday. He should play important snaps in a talent-deficient secondary when healthy.

Dolphins CB Chris Culliver (knee) expects to make his season debut Week 10 against the Chargers.

Culliver spent the first nine weeks of the season on reserve/PUP recovering from ACL and MCL tears. The Dolphins badly need cornerback help, but Culliver hasn't been a productive player for years, dating back to his time with the 49ers. This will remain a defense to pick on with the passing game.

Dolphins activated CB Chris Culliver from reserve/PUP.

Coming off ACL and MCL tears, Culliver figures to be eased slowly into practice and might be able to play some snaps later in the season. Byron Maxwell has played surprisingly well recently, but Culliver could upgrade Tony Lippett.

Dolphins CB Chris Culliver (knee, PUP) will return to practice this week.

Culliver is recovering from ACL and MCL tears he suffered in November. The Dolphins really need help in the secondary, but it could take Culliver a couple weeks to get up to speed. Miami will have 21 days to activate him once he starts practicing.

Dolphins CB Chris Culliver (knee) will begin the season on the reserve/PUP.

It was expected Culliver would start the year on the PUP when the Dolphins signed him earlier this month. He will miss at least the first six weeks, but he could be a valuable mid-season boost for a team desperate at corner. Second-round rookie Xavien Howard, who has missed all of the preseason with a knee injury, is expected to open the year opposite Byron Maxwell in the starting lineup.

Dolphins placed CB Chris Culliver (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Culliver tore his ACL and MCL in late November and is a candidate to open the year on reserve/PUP, costing him at least the first six weeks of the season. Culliver isn't going to help Miami's dire cornerback situation right away. One of Tony Lippett, Xavien Howard, or Chimdi Chekwa is expected to start Week 1 opposite Byron Maxwell. This looks like a defense to pick on early.
Wed, Aug 10, 2016 09:04:00 AM

Dolphins signed CB Chris Culliver to a one-year contract.

The deal is reportedly worth "up to" $5 million. With a smoking crater behind Byron Maxwell on the depth chart, the Dolphins had to do something. Culliver is coming off a torn ACL, but is still only 28 (this month). He had a strong 2014 for the 49ers. If Culliver is healthy, he'll allow the Dolphins to ease in second-rounder Xavien Howard (knee) while moving on from "Tony Lippett." It's still not a good situation. The Dolphins' cornerback corps could be one of 2016's most torched.
Tue, Aug 9, 2016 06:04:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports CB Chris Culliver (knee) is scheduled to visit the Cardinals next week.

Culliver might not be ready to sign a contract after tearing his ACL and MCL in November, so the Cardinals could just be checking in on his recovery. Arizona added Mike Jenkins on Tuesday, and it is clear they are looking for more help in the secondary. Culliver could be another veteran option once he gets healthy.

Redskins released CB Chris Culliver.

Culliver signed a "four-year, $32 million contract" last March, but tore his ACL and MCL in November. The remaining guarantees in his contract were voided by a Week 2 suspension for violating the league's personal-conduct policy. Culliver was excellent in 2014, and is still only 27. He'll get a second chance, but will have to be healthy first. The Redskins used a third-round pick on Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller.
Mon, May 2, 2016 02:09:00 PM

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim reports CB Chris Culliver (ACL, MCL) is expected to be retained.

A one-game suspension voided the $8 million guaranteed Culliver was owed in 2016, but Keim reports the Redskins will honor the guarantee. It is an odd decision. Culliver was not effective while on the field last year and is not likely to be ready by Week 1 after tearing his ACL and MCL in November. With several big needs to fill including in the secondary, the Redskins could use an extra $5.5 million on the cap.

The Washington Times reports the suspension Redskins RCB Chris Culliver (ACL, MCL) served Week 2 voided all remaining guaranteed money on his contract.

Culliver was owed $8 million guaranteed in 2016, but a clause in his contract voided that money if he was suspended for a 2014 off-field incident. The change means it will only cost the Redskins $3.75 million in dead cap to cut Culliver this offseason. Culliver struggled while on the field in his one year as a Redskin and is questionable at best for Week 1 after tearing his right ACL and MCL in late November. Washington may decide to move on.
Sat, Jan 23, 2016 01:21:00 PM

Redskins RCB Chris Culliver is out for the season with a torn right ACL and MCL.

Culliver suffered the injury in Thursday morning's practice. Even before the multi-knee-ligament tear, Culliver was playing poor football for a Redskins team that invested a four-year, $32 million contract in him during the offseason. He was the highest-paid free agent Washington bought last spring. Culliver will be questionable to be ready for Week 1 of the 2016 season.
Thu, Nov 26, 2015 03:05:00 PM

The Redskins fear RCB Chris Culliver tore his ACL in practice this week.

Culliver suffered a right knee injury in Thursday morning's practice and was immediately sent for an MRI. Culliver has been injured and ineffective all season. His loss isn't necessarily bad news for the Redskins' defense.
Thu, Nov 26, 2015 01:55:00 PM

Redskins CB Chris Culliver injured his right knee in practice Thursday and will undergo an MRI.

Culliver has had issues with his left knee this season and needed an MRI on his shoulder earlier this week. He was spotted wearing a full brace on his right leg after practice. Culliver has toughed his way through injuries several times, but this one may knock him out of Week 12. DeAngelo Hall would be thrust back into the starting lineup if Culliver misses.
