Case for: Recorded 24 combined tackles with 2.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries in 2012; played in two playoff games for Patriots in 2012.
Case against: Was suspended four games in 2012 for testing positive for a banned substance; has missed practice time in training camp due to injury.
Berry’s take: Cunningham may have been on track for his finest season in 2012 before he was hit with a four-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. Afterward, all sense of steam for his career has appeared to slow. He hasn’t had any chance to pick it back up.
