Cunningham is slated to be traded to the Patriots from the Cardinals in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round pick, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Cunningham will likely make New England's 53-man roster as a swing tackle, decreasing the chances that Cole Cronston, Dan Skipper, Martez Ivey and Tyree St. Louis stick with the team. The 2018 seventh-round pick showed flashes of potential last season across six starts in Arizona.
Cunningham (foot) was practicing with the first-team offensive line this week, Katherine Fitzgerald of the Arizona Republic reports.
Cunningham looks to be fully recovered from offseason surgery that addressed a foot injury. With right tackle Marcus Gilbert not practicing, Cunningham has stepped in but will likely open the season in a reserve role.
Cunningham underwent surgery to address his foot injury, according to his personal Twitter account.
Cunningham sustained an undisclosed foot injury during a Week 16 loss to the Rams, the severity of which caused him to spend the final game of his rookie season on injured reserve. His resulting surgical procedure appears to have been a complete success, and Cunningham now begins his recovery process. The 2018 seventh-round pick will work to heal up in time to participate without limitations in offseason workouts.
The Cardinals placed Cunningham (foot) on injured reserve Tuesday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
The offensive tackle will be shuttered for the season after picking up the foot injury in the Week 16 loss to the Rams. Safety D.J. Swearinger, who was claimed off waivers from the Redskins, will fill Cunningham's spot on the 53-man roster.

Cunningham exited the Week 16 loss during the fourth quarter, and did not retake the field. As long as the rookie seventh-round pick remains sidelined, the Cardinals could have significant trouble providing depth on the offensive line.
Coach Steve Wilks announced Monday that Cunningham would take over as the Cardinals' starting right tackle in Week 13 against the Packers, Kyle Odegard of the team's official site reports.
Cunningham will ascend into the starting lineup following the team's release of Andre Smith. A 2018 seventh-round pick, Cunningham has logged just two appearances during his rookie campaign.
