The Green Bay Packers continue to test the market with low-key free agents, and added another one off the streets by signing former Furman wide receiver Sederrick Cunningham on Monday.
Sederrick Cunningham is the fourth street free agent to join the Green Bay Packers this offseason, following the signings of kicker Giorgio Tavecchio, cornerback Loyce Means, and tight end Matthew Mulligan. Green Bay Packers remain one of the two NFL teams who haven’t signed an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
The 5-foot-11, 198-pound Sederrick Cunningham became draft eligible last season but remained unsigned by any team in 2012, so he has no pro experience.
Sederrick Cunningham participated in the pro days both at Furman and Coastal Carolina in 2012. He clocked 4.52 in one try at the 40-yard dash and 4.46 in the other. Sederrick Cunningham also posted a vertical leap of 35 inches and bench pressed 225 pounds 11 times.
Buried behind a depth chart already featuring six wide receivers on the Green Bay Packers’ roster, Sedderick Cunningham will have to claw his way up to make the 53-man roster. Green Bay Packers veteran running back Donald Driver retired following the 2012 season, while Greg Jennings landed in Minnesota during free agency.
Sedderick Cunningham caught 17 passes for 340 yards and four touchdowns during his senior year at Furman in 2011. He also saw action as a kick returner that season, returning 32 kickoffs for 853 yards (26.7yards per return) and a touchdown.
During his four seasons in Furman, Sedderick Cunningham appeared in 44 games, while rushing 29 times for 238 yards and caught 95 passes for 1,196 yards as well as seven touchdowns. Sedderick Cunningham also returned 66 kickoffs for 1,549 yards and one score during his collegiate career at Furman.
