Culliver (knee) will visit the Cardinals and undergo a physical with the team Monday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. Culliver was released by the Redskins in May after tearing his ACL and MCL during a November practice, which limited him to just six games played last season. Despite his injury, the Cardinals are plenty familiar with Culliver from his time spent in the division with the 49ers, and Arizona has enjoyed some success with signing veteran free agents of late. As a result, Culliver's physical condition could foreseeably determine whether the Cardinals make him an offer, as Arizona could use depth in a secondary that lost Jerraud Powers and Rashad Johnson this offseason.
Culliver was released by the Redskins on Monday. Culliver signed a four-year, $32 million deal with the Redskins just last offseason, but made only six appearances for Washington prior to suffering a torn ACL and MCL during a November practice. Not only is Culliver a high-priced veteran coming off an injury, but the Redskins also drafted cornerback Kendall Fuller in the third round, and made a huge splash by adding All-Pro corner Josh Norman recently as well. Given those considerations, the 27-year-old Culliver was made expendable and will now look to land elsewhere prior to the season.
Culliver sustained a torn ACL and MCL during Thursday's practice, bringing his season to an end, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Washington made a splash in the offseason, inking Culliver to a four-year contract, but a one-game suspension and knee injury limited him to 16 tackles and no interceptions in six appearances. A shoulder injury resulted in no practice Wednesday, and in his return Thursday, he suffered the knee ligament tears on an attempted leap. With a lengthy rehab process on tap, he may be in danger of missing most of the 2016 season as well.
Culliver (knee) is active for Sunday's game at New England. While Culliver is present for the first time since Week 4, the discomfort in his knee could place a damper on his ability to remain on the field, though his IDP prospects don't inspire confidence, as he managed just six tackles (five solo) in the three outings in which he was active this season.
Culliver will try to play through his knee injury Sunday against the Patriots, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. DeAngelo Hall (toe) is not expected to play, though even with the potential for more playing time, Culliver remains a fairly limited IDP option, particularly playing through an injury.
