Just moments after the Cardinals inked cornerback Mike Jenkins, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported via Twitter that Arizona is scheduled to meet with four-year NFL corner Chris Culliver next week.
“He’ll come in and take a visit with us,” Cardinals general manager Steve Keim confirmed Tuesday before throwing out the first pitch at a D-backs game. “We’ll see. He’s coming off an ACL. There’s obviously the medical side of it that you have to look into. He’s a guy that’s also had some success in the NFL.”
Culliver was a third-round draft pick in 2011 by the 49ers. He played three seasons by the Bay before signing as a free agent with the Washington Redskins last season.
In four NFL seasons, the 27-year-old has appeared in 52 games, starting 26. He played just six games for Washington last year with zero interceptions, finishing the year on the IR with a knee injury. He was released in May when the Redskins signed Josh Norman.
In 2014, Culliver started 14 games for San Francisco, nabbing four interceptions and 15 passes defensed. In Week 1, he recovered a fumble for a 35-yard touchdown.
