Packers Release WR Sederrick Cunningham

Packers Release WR Sederrick Cunningham

Wide receiver Sederrick Cunningham was released by the Green Bay Packers on Friday, according to the NFL's transaction wire.

Cunningham didn't even last through one full training camp practice after dislocating his left wrist on the first day of camp last July. He had surgery almost immediately and was placed on injured reserve, where he spent the remainder of the season.

The Packers avoid having to pay Cunningham an injury settlement, like they would have had they released him last season when he was first injured.

Cunningham was signed to the Packers roster last April after being out of football for a full year.

The Packers are short on wide receiver depth after releasing Cunningham and James Jones left the team in free agency last month, but they figure to add several either during the upcoming NFL Draft or sign several as undrafted free agents not long after.

Mike Davis,anyone?

Hope not... Don't like him at all. Lacks toughness, afraid of contact and going over the middle. Plays w/ alligator arms and has major issues w/ drops. Lazy route runner and blocker.

Wait...Wait...Wait... Where are you getting this from??? BTW, didn't James Jones (excluding the run blocking) have those mentioned issues? He finally came around. Mike is talented.

Dra, all this guy does is read blogs then he rinses and repeats what other people say. This guy Strohkinoff has no clue how to have an original thought. By the way, he actually believes he's Mel Kiper except he's totally bald. lol

Same places we all get this stuff from. We watch what we can, form an opinion and use the other draft sites. What all that came from was not liking what I saw of him and reading sites like CBS and NFL.com. Sometime I don't agree w/ them and hold onto what I think no matter what they say. If you read the sites those both said a lot of the same things about Davis. If you don't agree w/ me or them that's fine, its your opinion.

Don't honestly remember much of what was said about James Jones, except I seem to remember him supposed to have very good hand, but lacked top speed.

For every site that says he has bad hands I bet I can find another that says he has nice strong hands. I also seen some that labeled him a consistent run blocker and fairly productive.Take what the "experts" say with a grain of salt. And with James Jones - I'm going by what I've seen. I wasn't going by his pre-draft analysis. That's what US FANS was saying about him before he finally got it together. Slow,never goes all out for the ball,he was known for his drops,he was a scapegoat at one point,scared of the middle. If memory serves me correct,A-Rod threw a pick this season due to James Jones pulling up on a slant route or post route.

I'm not saying we should draft him in a high round. I'm just saying he's talented and he runs good after the catch. Simple.

But if the two most credible say the same thing, it bears paying attention to. If they have different opinions and don't say the same thing then it opens the discussion.

As for what you or I saw of Jones. I only know what I saw, a guy that generally had good hands except for the period he dropped a lot, he otherwise had good hands. His speed was never very good, but there are other ways of winning vs a CB. Jones has size and physicality. He was good at getting himself open enough for an accurate QB. Playing w/ Pryor, just like Jennings in Minn, he'll struggle to get open enough for a lower tier QB to get him the ball. In other words Jones was made a lot better by playing w/ a very accurate QB and being the 4th receiving option. What happens if he's the #2 WR facing better coverage and w/ a inferior QB?

I would say the answer is obvious.

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! How can they let a talent like Sederrick Cunningham go? Who's Rodgers going to throw to now? I'm going to have to rethink my whole fantasy football strategy for next season. Great, just great! Fire Thompson now!
