Washington Nabs Chris Culliver

The Washington Redskins have signed former San Francisco Forty Niner defensive back Chris Culliver to a four year deal reportedly worth up to $32 million dollars with a signing bonus of $5 million, $16 million guaranteed and base salary of $8 million. Culliver was an unrestricted free agent.

The Niners drafted Culliver in the third round pick number 80 of the 2011 NFL Draft out of South Carolina. The Philadelphia native played all four years of his career in San Francisco where he racked up 127 tackles, three forced fumbles and seven interceptions. He missed the 2013 season after tearing his ACL in training camp.

Culliver of course raised the ire of the league when he said openly gay NFL players wouldn’t be accepted in an NFL locker room. He later apologized and underwent sensitivity training at the behest of the league. He also faced a criminal charge of felony possession of brass knuckles as well as hit and run. That case appears to be still unresolved.

Congratulations to Culliver and the Redskins and good luck this coming season! You can follow Culliver on twitter at @Cullyinthehouse and on Instagram at @cullyinthehouse.
