As Reported by Pro Football Talk, as well as NFL.com, the Dolphins have signed former San Francisco cornerback Chris Culliver to a one year contract.
Culliver, who will turn 28 next week, was a third-round pick in 2011 and played his collegiate ball at the University of South Carolina. He was clocked at an eye-popping 4.36 in the forty yard dash at the NFL combine prior to the draft. In addition to the Niners, Culliver has also played for the Washington Redskins.
A talented player on the field, Culliver has had several off the field issues, including having been arrested for a hit and run incident involving a bicyclist, during which an illegal set of brass knuckles was found in his car, and for stating publicly that openly gay player Michael Sam would not be welcome in an NFL locker room. Suffice it to say that such a statement probably didn't go over well in San Francisco. The Dolphins, needing all the help they can get in their beleaguered secondary, are no doubt pleased to have the sixth year player on their roster.
