Adam Schefter of ESPN Tweeted a few minutes ago that the Patriots have apparently reached an agreement with rookie linebacker Jermaine Cunningham.
Patriots reached agreement with one of their three 2nd-rd picks, former Florida OLB Jermaine Cunningham, who landed a four-year deal.

This is good news, as Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com had reported earlier this evening that each of the Patriots remaining 2nd round picks were all close to getting under contract.

That leaves just one player (Devin McCourty) to go, and recent reports said those talks were moving along well.  Hopefully that means they'll all be under contract before the weekend is over.
