Redskins cut cornerback Chris Culliver

Scot McCloughan's thoughts on the Redskins NFL Draft haul were overshadowed by news that the team released the veteran cornerback.

Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan announced Monday that the team has released cornerback Chris Culliver

Culliver is coming off of an ACL injury late in the 2015 season after signing a four-year, $32 million deal last spring. The majority of guaranteed money was voided post-injury. He played six games in 2015 with mixed results. 

McCloughan said the move was done at this time in part to the recent signing of free agent Josh Norman and the selection of Kendall Fuller in the third round of the just completed NFL Draft. He also wanted to allow Culliver to get a long look as possible in free agency
