Cowboys are expected to add former Bears RB to offense

The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly expected to re-sign former Bears running back Benny Cunningham to a one-year deal, according to ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter.

Cunningham was one of the league’s top running backs during the 2015 season and has been a key piece of the offense in Dallas this season.

The 32-year-old will count $5.25 million against the cap this season and is expected to be paid like a $1.9 million salary, which is significantly lower than the $3.8 million cap number the Cowboys will pay Adrian Peterson, who is expected return to the field in the near future.

The Cowboys are also expected to sign veteran cornerback Darrelle Revis to a five-year, $78 million deal, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Cunningham played for the Bears in 2015 and recorded 6,944 rushing yards and 28 touchdowns, which ranked him second on the team in both categories.

He also caught 68 passes for 736 yards and three touchdowns, with two of those touchdowns coming in the fourth quarter.

Cunningham also had nine catches for 104 yards in 2015.

The Packers, Lions and Bills are also reportedly interested in signing Cunningham.
