Free agent OLB Jermaine Cunningham pleaded guilty to invasion of privacy, illegal transport of a weapon, and possession of hollow-point bullets Wednesday.
The charges stem from a December domestic "revenge porn" dispute when authorities were called to Cunningham's residence after he posted a racy photo of his estranged girlfriend online without her consent. Cunningham spent all of last season on I.R. with a torn Achilles'. He's expected to be sentenced to probation next month. We wouldn't be surprised if this is the last we hear of him. May 20 - 3:39 PM

Jets OLB Jermaine Cunningham was arrested Dec. 29 on charges of third-degree invasion of privacy and criminal mischief.

Cunningham is accused of spreading sexual images and illegally transporting a handgun in his Audi. The criminal mischief charge is related to the destruction of clothing. There are no further details at this time on this weird case. Cunningham is a backup outside linebacker that blew out his Achilles during an August scrimmage and spent all of 2014 on IR. He's also an impending free agent.

Jets placed OLB Jermaine Cunningham (Achilles') on injured reserve, ending his season.

Cunningham, 26, tore his Achilles' at Saturday night's scrimmage. Quinton Coples, Calvin Pace, and Jason Babin will make up Gang Green's edge-rushing trio. The Jets signed G/T Bruce Campbell to fill Cunningham's roster spot.

Jets OLB Jermaine Cunningham suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in Saturday night's scrimmage and is out for the year.

The Jets were hoping for sub-package contributions from versatile Cunningham at end and linebacker, so this is a blow to their pass-rush depth. It also makes the Jason Babin signing look more savvy. Expect Quinton Coples, Calvin Pace, and Babin to be New York's primary edge-rushing trio this season.

Jets OLB Jermaine Cunningham worked with the starting nickel defense at OTAs.

With Antwan Barnes (knee) questionable for training camp, Cunningham is getting an extended look as a sub-package pass rusher. He saw brief action in two games with the Jets at the end of last year and could push for a third-down role behind Quinton Coples. Sixth-round DE/OLB IK Enemkpali and seventh-rounder Trevor Reilly are also competing for roster spots.

The New York Post mentioned OLB Jermaine Cunningham as a player that stood out at Jets OTAs.

Cunningham re-upped with the Jets on a one-year, minimum-salary deal back in January after originally signing on with Gang Green in November. He saw limited action down the stretch but is still young (26 in April). The former Patriots second-rounder reportedly looked fast around the edge in the non-contact practices. With Calvin Pace entering his age-34 season and Quinton Coples frustrating the Jets, Cunningham could carve out a role in 2014.
Fri, May 30, 2014 12:38:00 PM

Jets re-signed DE/OLB Jermaine Cunningham to a one-year, $730,000 contract.

Cunningham was scheduled to hit unrestricted free agency in March. The former second-round pick of the Patriots in 2010 appeared in one game for the Jets last season, failing to record a tackle. Cunningham will be on the roster bubble if he lasts with the team into training camp.

Jets signed OLB Jermaine Cunningham.

A second-round pick of the Patriots in 2010, Cunningham was waived by the 49ers at the end of October. If active for the Jets, he'll be depth as a sub-package pass-rusher.
Wed, Nov 20, 2013 10:19:00 AM

49ers waived DE/OLB Jermaine Cunningham.

Cunningham had yet to be active for the 49ers after signing on October 1. Cunningham appeared in 12 games for the Patriots last season, making 24 tackles and 2.5 sacks. He missed the final four games due to a PED suspension.
Tue, Oct 29, 2013 05:18:00 PM

49ers signed DE/OLB Jermaine Cunningham.

The Patriots released Cunningham with an injury settlement early last month. Cunningham appeared in 12 games for the Pats last season, making three starts. He's notched 59 career tackles and 3.5 sacks. He's a nice piece of depth for the 49ers' undermanned front seven in the absence of Aldon Smith.
Tue, Oct 1, 2013 05:00:00 PM

Patriots reached an injury settlement with DE Jermaine Cunningham.

Cunningham has been removed from injured reserve and is now a free agent. The Patriots also released DL Justin Francis, and added Leon Washington and OG Josh Kline to the active roster.
Sat, Sep 7, 2013 05:05:00 PM

Patriots waived/injured DE Jermaine Cunningham.

He was the 53rd overall pick in the 2010 draft. Cunningham served primarily as an interior sub-package rusher with New England. He'll likely spend 2013 on injured reserve and can be a free agent in 2014.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 10:27:00 AM

The Boston Globe believes Patriots DL Jermaine Cunningham "looks like a goner."

In other words, Cunningham isn't expected to make the team. The Patriots have a plethora of young, cheap defensive linemen, and Cunningham's mostly been a non-factor in his three seasons with the club. He has 3.5 career sacks.
Sun, Aug 18, 2013 10:29:00 AM

Patriots activated DE Jermaine Cunningham from the reserve/suspended list.

Cunningham served a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on PEDs. He has 23 tackles and 2.5 sacks this season while acting as a situational interior pass rusher.

NFL suspended Patriots DE Jermaine Cunningham four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

He'll be eligible to return in Week 17. A sub-package rusher who plays inside and out, Cunningham amassed 23 tackles and 2.5 sacks in the Patriots' first 11 games, making three starts. The Pats can withstand his loss if they get rookie RE Chandler Jones back healthy. Trevor Scott can take Cunningham's role.
