  • Titans' Zach Cunningham: Scooped by Titans

    The Titans claimed Cunningham off waivers from the Texans on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Though he signed a four-year, $58 million extension just over 15 months ago and was coming off a season in which he tallied a career-high 164 tackles to go with three sacks, Cunningham fell out of favor with Houston's new regime in 2021. He was benched for the first quarter of the Texans' Week 2 loss in Cleveland due to tardiness issues, and Houston made him a healthy inactive for disciplinary reasons in the team's 31-0 loss to the Colts in Week 13. Recent reports have indicated that Cunningham's most recent infraction was a missed COVID-19 test, and the Texans' decision to waive him Wednesday suggested the relationship between player and team was beyond repair. Though the Titans will have to absorb the remaining money on his deal, Cunningham should give his new team a major lift at inside linebacker, where Tennessee has struggled with injuries this season.

  • Texans' Zach Cunningham: Time in Houston over

    The Texans will waive Cunningham on Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Cunningham was held out of the team's Week 13 loss to the Colts for disciplinary reasons, although the exact details behind the Texans' decision to make him inactive aren't completely clear. The 27-year-old linebacker played 100 percent of the Texans' defensive snaps over the last three weeks and recorded at least eight tackles in each game. Cunningham signed a four-year, $58 million contract extension in August 2020, a prohibitive deal that could make any team reluctant to claim him off waivers. Assuming he clears waivers, however, Cunningham should command plenty of interest around the league when he'll be eligible to sign a more team-friendly deal.
