Rams RFA RB Benny Cunningham Visiting Patriots

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that Rams RFA RB Benny Cunningham is visiting with the Patriots on Thursday.

Los Angeles used a low-round tender on Cunningham in recent days.

Should a team sign Cunningham to an offer sheet, the Rams would have five days to match the offer, or they would lose him.

The low-round tender will cost the Broncos  $1,671,000 for the 2016 season and give them the right of first refusal on any contract offer they receive. However, if they elect to not match an offer sheet, Denver would not receive any compensation for him.

Cunningham, 25, wound up signing on with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Middle Tennessee State back in 2013. He’s managed to make the 53-man roster each of his three years in the NFL.

In 2015, Cunningham appeared in all 16 games for the Rams and ran for 140 yards on 37 carries to go along with 26 receptions for 250 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
