The Cardinals defense last year ranked seventh in the league in points allowed per game, and fifth in total defense, but they're always looking for ways to get better.

The team in the 2016 NFL Draft used its first-round pick on Ole Miss defensive terror Robert Nkemdiche, bulking up an already dangerous front-seven.

And now the team is looking to enhance its secondary, and will reportedly host former 49ers and Washington cornerback Chris Culliver, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Culliver, who turns 28 in August, entered the NFL as a third-round draft pick by San Francisco in 2011.

The 6-foot-0, 199-pound South Carolina product played three seasons with the 49ers, racking up seven interceptions, two forced fumbles, and 38 pass breakups. He missed the 2013 campaign with a non-contact ACL tear. 

Culliver went on to sign a four-year contract with Washington, in which he only started and played six games for the team. In Septemeber 2015, the defender was suspended for violating the personal conduct policy. Two months later Culliver tore his ACL and MCL, being placed on injured reserve for the second time in his career. 

He was released before he could enter the second year of his four-year deal.
