Cunningham started seven of 10 games played, compiling 67 tackles, second-most on the team. The 27-year-old was inactive in Week 13 after being late for a COVID-19 test and was disciplined by the team a few times this year, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo added.
“We have standards,” coach David Culley said. “I didn’t feel like those standards were being met consistently. It wasn’t tough at all (to waive Cunningham). It’s about the team. It’s not about one individual player.”
