Patriots Unsure Who Will Replace LB Jermaine Cunningham
The Patriots are exploring options on how to replace Jermaine Cunningham on the roster, including the possibility of looking outside the organization, coach Bill Belichick said Tuesday.
The team currently has one defensive lineman, rookie Marcus Fortson, and one linebacker, second-year man Jeff Tarpinian, on its practice squad. Cunningham has played both on the line and linebacker, although this season he has seen most of his work on the line, at both end and tackle.
One of those two would be the most likely replacement for the suspended Cunningham. Belichick said he will consider staying within the organization to replace Cunningham, but that he also will meet with player personnel director Nick Caserio to discuss the possibility of finding someone from the outside.
