2016 NFL Free Agency: Rams RFA RB Benny Cunningham Visiting With New England Patriots Today

New, comments

Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the Rams' reserve running back will meet with the Pats.

Yesterday, news came out that the Los Angeles Rams had tendered running back Benny Cunningham at the lowest level. With no draft pick sacrifice needed to be made if a team wants to sign him, the first suitor has already come calling: the New England Patriots.

As I said yesterday, everyone's expendable on the RB depth chart behind Just Todd Gurley. It's why Benny got the low-tier tender while QB Case Keenum received the high-tier one.

The depth chart at RB is an interesting one for the Rams right now. Gurley's the clear starter and may not make much room for carries behind him. Tre Mason is likely facing a suspension after being arrested and tased in Miami for possession of marijuana and various traffic misdemeanors. Chase Reynolds went un-tendered as a RFA yesterday and thus might not be a Ram in 2016. Malcolm Brown is a ERFA after his rookie season.
