Jim Harbaugh on Chris Culliver: 'competes like a maniac' - Washington Redskins Blog - ESPN
"It is a special friendship that we have. Him as a player, he's always been extremely competitive," Harbaugh said. "A very talented individual. He's playing his best football right now. It's great to see that in his execution, in his effort, in his talent. I just love the competitive nature that he plays with. He competes like a maniac. And he's doing it in a physical way. That's important to our football team -- to be physical. And to do that from the corner position is really good. You're playing with 11 tacklers out there when your corners are physical like safeties are. That's the way he plays the game. Was in on some great, important plays in the game. Covering the deep ball there in the fourth quarter, covering part of the goal-line stand and quite a few others. You look back to the Saints game and he set the tone physically with his tackle early in the game. Plus, plus, plus for Chris right now."

The quarterback’s deal calls for a salary of $850,000 (per Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun). That’s not big money is the world of NFL quarterbacks by any means but it’s up from the $730,000 he made last year. McCoy’s signing bonus went up from $65,000 last year to $150,000 in 2015. Again, not a ton of money but still a nice increase. Where McCoy’s contract differs is that he will be paid more if he is on the game day active list. He will get $31,250 for each game that he is among the 46 who are in uniform. So if he’s active for 16 games that’s an extra $500,000.
