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.

Unexpected development. What would Dunbar command in a trade?

Given how Trent Williams was never traded, I highly doubt Dunbar gets his wish. He's a Redskins, if even only out of spite.

Nah, Bruce is gone. If we get a good offer, Rivera (the man in charge now) will likely trade him. 
 

As for compensation, it probably depends how much both the Redskins and the team trading for him buy into PFF grades, where he was the 2nd overall ranked CB after Sherman. 
 

Also, his dirt cheap current salary needs to be taken into account in terms of value, but so does the average of 4 games he misses per year.

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.

Can you imagine how this went down?

 

Dunbar: I deserve a top raise.

Redskins Front Office: Based on what?

Dunbar: PFF

Redskins Front Office: LOL, close the door on your way out.

I mean, Rivera came in and said the first thing they were going to do is review tape of their own players to figure out what the strengths and weaknesses of the roster are.  Maybe they aren’t done with that process yet.

No way!  Rhodes was a Pro Bowler this year.  We would need some additional compensation if we were going to let a star like Rhodes get away for an unknown like Dunbar.  xD
