Chris Culliver’s visit to Washington appears to have been a rousing success.

We posted early Friday about Culliver’s trip to meet with the Redskins, which was the first public show of interest in his services since free agency opened on Tuesday. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that there won’t need to be a second one because Culliver will sign a four-year contract to join the team’s secondary.

The Redskins got very little from their cornerbacks last season before and after DeAngelo Hall was lost for the season to a torn Achilles, which makes their interest in corners this offseason easy to understand. Culliver should be the team’s No. 1 corner before the ink of his signature on the contract even has a chance to dry.

Culliver joins defensive linemen Stephen Paea, Ricky Jean Francois and Terrance Knighton as new additions to the defense in General Manager Scot McCloughan’s first offseason running the shop in Washington.
