NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport added that it was a one-year deal for the veteran.
Culliver played sparingly for the Washington Redskins in 2015. He played in six games and broke up only one pass. This came after he signed a whopping four-year, $32 million deal with Washington prior to the season.
Culliver played with the San Francisco 49ers from 2011-14, recording 36 passes defended and seven interceptions in 48 games.
Culliver will join a crowded secondary in Miami. When the Dolphins released their first depth chart of the season, Byron Maxwell and Tony Lippett were listed as the team’s starting corners.
Culliver will also be joining a unit that was one of the worst in the NFL last season. Miami ranked 21st in passing defense while yielding the eighth-most passing touchdowns in 2015.
