  • Dolphins To Sign CB- Chris Culliver

    I think this is a good move considering there's nobody else out there and nobody is really stepping up so far opposite of Maxwell. Also adds to the theme of injury prone players.
    Dolphins working on deal with cornerback Chris Culliver

    The Dolphins need help in the secondary, and they’re about to land a veteran who has been productive when healthy.

    According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, the Dolphins are working to sign veteran cornerback Chris Culliver, and a deal could be done soon.

    Culliver has two ACL tears in the last three seasons, and was cut by Washington after the team signed Josh Norman and draftedKendall Fuller. That came a year after he signed a four-year, $32 million deal in D.C.

    He had worked out for the Cardinals recently, and the Dolphins must feel confident he’s well enough to contribute. Of course, they’re thin enough at the position their standards might be lower than others, as Culliver ought to present an immediate upgrade.

    Was a good player. Nothing to lose at this point. Who's the best Corner in Canada? Is Cromartie THAT bad?

      Gase said a month ago that he didn't like Cro... was pretty up front about it.

    Nice signing. He is the best free agent corner still out there. We just have to hope he has recovered from his ACL injuries and that it doesn't happen again.

        I wish we had drafted Kendall Fuller instead of Kenyan Drake. We already had Damien Williams and he is basically a more durable Kenyan Drake.

            This'll be written on the Dolphins tombstone!!!

            Actually, all things being equal, it's probably a decent signing...hopefully better than the camp fodder CB's we've been signing of late......

              All incentive laden. If maxwell is built like a tank throuout the season then we have Howard and Lippett as backups!

                  This is exactly what I was thinking. This team is compelled to sign every walking wounded player there is. Then we start getting camp reports of people being injured...uh...yeah.

                This is what happens when you fail to properly address a position during the real free agency period and the draft.

                  Sorry Cuch I disagree. Maxwell was not bad, but horrible in Philly last year. Howard is a rookie who knows what he has. Lippett has not shown starting caliber talent. Last year we at least knew Grimes had his side of the field. This year it is a roster of has beens and wanna bes.

                  Matt, Maxwell was playing in a scheme that didn't fit him at all. I know he had a lot of talent around him in Seattle, but he was pretty damn good there. I expect to see the CB much closer to what we saw in Seattle vs the one we saw in Philly.

                  Agree with Cuch and Nole about Maxwell. I'm not sure what position you feel we drafted that we didn't need. I guess you could argue Drake and the Rutgers WR, but we still would have been picking a rookie with zero experience. Grimes was no longer an option due to his big mouth wife. Trading Taylor for a can of tomato soup didn't really bother me considering Taylor was given ample opportunity to sieze the moment and never did, my guess is he's just not good enough. And like others have mentioned Howard getting hurt was something you could not have known. Lippett played well against Brady and the Pats in the final game so he was definitely trending upward. Unfortunately you can't fix a team with as many holes as the Dolphins had in one draft and one off season. Sure I would have liked to get Josh Norman or some other proven CB but the fact is we can't have the top paid player at every position. We've already invested a ton in several players and Norman was not an option.

                  I believe the whole strategy of the FA we got was get them while they were not in a position to demand top dollars, rather they were in prove it years. Then hope that half of those prove it players actually return to their past abilities and contribute this year while you continue to address needs in future drafts and off season's.

                Culliver was a complete DBag in SF and Wash... don't like this guy at all. He's here for depth though - if he sticks at all.

                  Word is CB Chris Culliver has weeks remaining in ACL/MCL recovery but Dolphins optimistic he will help them at some point.

                    I'll sign up but I need 35 yards cushion.

                      lmao!!! Any truth to the rumor that they're still awaiting on word whether Bo Jackson will be healthy enough to help them at some point this year?!
