Quinton Dunbar no OTA's

Recommended Posts

If he thinks the team is just going to outright release him he’s got another thing coming.

No leverage on his end.

Think its smart on his end to ask for this,not the greatest FA CB class and his market should be at a all time high for him with his PFF rankings with teams going more analytical.Also will be 28 at start of season so as a CB prob his last chance at a big contract.

I think I'm on the trade him wagon at moment just don't think he's been healthy enough or as good as his PFF #s suggest,to give him top 5 CB like he might want right now.

Also I wonder how much of this is us not having a GM right now since Keim said that they haven't been in contact with him since new group got control.

He'll still play out the last year of his deal, so I'm not sure this is even really news tbh

ASHBURN, Va., -- Washington Redskins starting corner Quinton Dunbar, dissatisfied with his contract, has requested to be traded or released, a source told ESPN Monday night.

Dunbar has one year left on his contract, with a base salary of $3.25 million -- none of which is guaranteed. He also has a roster bonus worth up to $250,000. Dunbar had talked with the previous administration about an extension, but a source said there had been no contact with the Redskins since Ron Rivera was hired after the season.

If the Redskins don't honor his request, and no extension is signed before training camp, the source said that Dunbar would play out his final season and sign elsewhere.

Dunbar won't participate in the spring OTA workouts, the source confirmed. His desire to skip those voluntary sessions as first reported by NBC Sports Washington. Dunbar's contract plus Reuben Foster's injury played into that decision. Foster tore multiple ligaments and suffered nerve damage on the first day of OTA work last spring. There's still uncertainty about when Foster will return.

Dunbar spoke with a member of the Redskins' administration Monday evening.

For Dunbar, seeing that injury and knowing his lack of guaranteed money fueled his desire to seek a contract that provided security.

This is a player putting himself in the best position for his future. Find a team that's willing to give us a 2nd for or a young bright future TE.

I’m not putting this on the team. I think it’s a valid concern to commit long term and if he thinks he’s worth more with his history that’s on him.

I think this is a guy who was happy with the old guard honestly.

LOL.  So what has changed?  

Bruce Allen and Daniel Snyder were the deciders.  Allen as de-facto GM and Snyder as the owner.  Allen is gone.  Also gone is Eric Schaeffer, who was the chief legal officer and cap specialist, who wouldn't necessarily have much contact, if any, with players.  Allen had the reputation of being very anti-player if you will.  

In comes Ron Rivera as the de-facto GM, as well as head coach.  If he and his group of people can not make a consensus decision, Snyder is the one who steps in.  There were some promotions in the personnel department, but no one has left.  According to Dunbar, none of them have reached out.  

On the coaching side, that also means that Rivera (who has full authority regarding personnel) hasn't reached out about his contract, despite being on the job since before the new year, nor has Jack Del Rio, who is probably about as far down the food chain as you can go for contacting a player about his contract status.  

Not contacting a guy who could be considered a #1 corner about his contract situation by a new coaching staff who have been on the job for a month and a half already is absolutely ridiculous.  No wonder Dunbar went the "trade me or release me" route.  It's once again proving that the team doesn't care about the players.  

Allen was a symptom of the disease.  Until the disease is cured or cut away, nothing is going to change.  And you all know who the disease is.

This honestly isn’t a big deal to me. Get offers for him, if nobody offers better than a second, you keep him. Let him play out this year and let him go next offseason in hopes of a compensatory pick. The guy is always hurt and his PFF grade this year is highly over valued. He’s not worth going head over heels for, he got shredded by Amari Cooper.

How is this not a big deal? He’s legitimately the only good corner we have. He got shredded by Amari Cooper when he had nerve damage and tried to come back too soon.
