Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Dolphins have officially activated CB Chris Culliver from the PUP list on Monday.
Culliver is coming off of ACL and MCL tears that led to him being placed on injured reserve last November but he has reportedly been doing well enough to get back on the field, so this move isn’t a big surprise.
Culliver, 27, is a former third-round pick of the 49ers back in 2011. He spent four years in San Francisco before signing a four-year, $32 million contract that included $16 million guaranteed with the Redskins back in March.
Culliver was set to make base salaries of $3 million in 2015 and $8 million from 2016-18 when the Redskins released him this past May. The Dolphins signed him to a contract during the preseason and placed him on the PUP list to open the year.
In 2015, Culliver appeared in six games and recorded 16 tackles and a pass defense for the Redskins. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 110 cornerback out of 111 qualifying players.
