- Washington released Culliver with the post-June 1 and failed physical designation, which will boost their cap savings.
The idea of moving on from Culliver became more likely after the Redskins were able to sign Josh Norman to a huge contract. On top of that, they used a mid-round pick on Kendall Fuller this past weekend.
Culliver, 27, signed a four-year, $32 million contract that included $16 million guaranteed with the Redskins back in March. He was set to make base salaries of $3 million in 2015 and $8 million from 2016-18.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Culliver with the post-June 1 designation will free up $8 million in available cap space while creating $1,250,000 in dead money.
In 2015, Culliver appeared in six games and recorded 16 tackles and a pass defense for the Redskins.
