SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – The exodus of Super Bowl veteran 49ers continues. Multiple sources report that cornerback Chris Culliver has agreed to join the Washington Redskins.
The 26-year-old has reportedly reached a 4-year deal that could total $32 million if all incentives are reached, according to the Washington Post. CBS Sports is hearing similar numbers for the young corner.
The four year veteran had 4 interceptions last year and seven in his career. He was highly sought after in free agency.
His time in San Francisco is perhaps best known for the distraction he created before Super Bowl XLVII when he made homophobic comments during a media day interview. He later apologized and attempted to restore his image in the LGBT community.
Culliver was also sued last year for allegedly driving recklessly, colliding with a bicyclist, using racial slurs and brandishing brass knuckles in an incident in San Jose in March of 2014.
All of those losses from a roster that made 3 consecutive NFC Championship Game appearances have created unrest among the Niner faithful. With fans selling their season tickets and calling for the removal of team CEO Jed York.
