Culliver’s suspension stems from an incident that occurred back in March 2014 when he was playing for the 49ers. Culliver plead guilty to two misdemeanors over the summer, but the Redskins elected to include a clause that voided any remaining guaranteed money should he be suspended in connection with that incident.
Beyond that, Culliver is working his way back from a torn ACL that ended his 2015 season.
Culliver admits that his future with the team is “uncertain.”
“It’s uncertain,” Culliver said Monday. “You’ve got to embrace the uncertainty.”
According to Boyer, it’s possible that the Redskins could approach Culliver about restructuring his contract, which includes a $9.25 million cap figure for the 2016 season. However, Washington has yet to began any discussions with his representatives about doing so.
Culliver, 27, signed a four-year, $32 million contract that included $16 million guaranteed with the Redskins back in March. He stands to make base salaries of $3 million in 2015 and $8 million from 2016-18.
In 2015, Culliver appeared in six games and recorded 16 tackles and a pass defense for the Redskins.
