Date:

Eagles signed WR B.J. Cunningham, ILB Emmanuel Acho, DE Brandon Bair, T Michael Bamiro, TE/FB Emil Igwenagu, QB G.J. Kinne, and LB Travis Long to reserve/future contracts.

Cunningham is a former Jeff Ireland pick out of Michigan State. He was the 183rd overall selection in the 2012 draft, and has yet to record a catch in the NFL. Bair played college ball for Chip Kelly at Oregon.

Eagles waived WR B.J. Cunningham.

Cunningham loses his roster spot to Brad Smith. The 2012 sixth-round pick of the Dolphins has no career catches in two appearances.
Tue, Nov 12, 2013 12:52:00 PM

Eagles re-signed WR B.J. Cunningham.

TE Emil Igwenagu was waived in a corresponding roster move. A 2012 sixth-round pick of the Dolphins, Cunningham has never appeared in an NFL game. He'll be the Eagles' No. 6 receiver.
Mon, Oct 14, 2013 03:49:00 PM

Eagles waived WR B.J. Cunningham.

Cunningham was drafted by Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland along with Michael Egnew and Dion Sims via the package of picks acquired for Brandon Marshall a year ago. Egnew is a bust, and Cunningham has now been cut by two teams.
Thu, Aug 1, 2013 08:17:00 PM

Eagles signed WR B.J. Cunningham, DT Ronnie Cameron, TE Derek Carrier, LB Marcus Dowtin, OL Matt Reynolds, G Julian Vandervelde, and CB Eddie Whitley to reserve/future contracts.

Cunningham, a sixth-round pick last April by the Dolphins, spent the season on the Eagles' practice squad. Carrier is an athletic "move" tight end prospect. These players will hope to last the offseason into training camp.
Mon, Dec 31, 2012 03:56:00 PM

Dolphins waived WR B.J. Cunningham, LB Cameron Collins and OLB Jamaal Westerman.

A sixth-round rookie out of Michigan State, Cunningham struggled with drops while falling to the back of Miami's woeful receiving corps. It's a bad label to get slapped with when speed and ability to separate are known issues. The practice squad is a possibility for Cunningham.

The Miami Herald describes sixth-round pick B.J. Cunningham's chances of making the Dolphins' final roster as "not good."

It's not a great sign for Cunningham in perhaps the league's most talent poor wide receiver corps. A star at Michigan State, Cunningham had a case of the dropsies throughout spring practice and apparently isn't making up for it so far in training camp. Rishard Matthews isn't making much noise, either.

Sixth-round WR B.J. Cunningham suffered from "too many drops" in offseason practices.

A previous report suggested Cunningham's drops occurred in rookie camp before he improved measurably in OTAs. Behind Brian Hartline and Davone Bess, the Miami Herald believes Chad Ochocinco and Legedu Naanee are the favorites for the third and fourth roster spots, though neither can't afford a letdown in camp. Roberto Wallace is the "most impressive" of the unproven entities vying for the fifth spot. Seventh-rounder Rishard Matthews will get a look on returns. Clyde Gates is "still thinking too much."
Mon, Jul 23, 2012 01:14:00 AM

After a rough start in rookie minicamp, sixth-round WR B.J. Cunningham reportedly "performed at a high level the rest of the way" in offseason practices.

Despite setting Michigan State's receiving record, Cunningham dropped in the draft due to a 4.59 forty and questions about his ability to separate from NFL corners. If he follows his strong spring showing with a stellar training camp, Cunningham could climb a shallow depth chart to contribute in multi-wide sets.
Thu, Jul 5, 2012 07:47:00 PM

Dolphins signed sixth-round WR B.J. Cunningham to a four-year contract.

Michigan State's all-time leading receiver with 218 catches and 3,086 yards, Cunningham fell in the draft due to speed concerns after clocking a 4.59 forty at the Combine. A physical receiver at 6'1" and 213 pounds, Cunningham will try to earn a complementary role behind Brian Hartline and Davone Bess.
Thu, May 17, 2012 04:41:00 PM

Dolphins selected Michigan State WR B.J. Cunningham with the No. 183 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

All-conference last year after posting an impressive 79/1,306/12 line for the Spartans, Cunningham is a big-bodied underneath receiver willing to fight for the ball in traffic. A smart receiver who uses his body well, Cunningham fell to the sixth round because he lacks vertical speed and can't stretch defenses. In a shallow Miami receiving corps, Cunningham should have a fair shot to make the final roster.
