  Giants | Benny Cunningham visits NY Giants    Tue Sep 24, 03:19 PM

Free-agent RB Benny Cunningham (Jaguars) worked out for the New York Giants on Tuesday, Sept. 24, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Giants only have two running backs on their active roster. Wayne Gallman should be the starter but Elijhaa Penny is a fullback. They'll explore all options, including promoting one of their two running backs (Jon Hillman, Austin Walter) from the practice squad.

  Jaguars | Benny Cunningham on track for spot    Thu Jun 20, 10:48 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Benny Cunningham's pass-catching ability gives him a good chance to make the 53-man roster, in the opinion of Daniel Popper of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Cunningham could play the TJ Yeldon role from last year, or at least the passing down part of it. He's still only a marginal back in a nondescript group of backups.

Free-agent RB Benny Cunningham (Bears) signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday, April 2. Terms of the deal weren't immediately available.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars add yet another veteran back to their corps. They signed Alfred Blue already this offseason and now Cunningham is in the mix. Blue, Cunningham, Thomas Rawls and David Williams will compete to establish a pecking order behind starter Leonard Fournette in 2019.
