According to John McClain, the Texans will place veteran LB Zach Cunningham on waivers today. 

It ends a rocky season for Cunningham, who has seen his role reduced and has been benched twice for disciplinary reasons. 

His name came up around the trade deadline as someone who could be available but his salary likely dissuaded teams. He had seemed to get back into the coaching staff’s good graces until he was again benched.
