Q Dunbar Gifted to the Seahawks

When we trade him for a 5th rounder? Yes. 

I see your point, but it still doesn't strike me as tanking. Now, if he wasn't asking to be cut/traded and we had just cut him & gotten nothing in return then I’d definitely agree.

We should have just kept him rather then giving him away, that was the best option. I said it was the best option since Dunny first demanded he wanted to be traded or get a new contract a month ago and keeping him was still the best option.

Everyone here is telling me that Rivera's biggest draw for them is the culture piece, and you were one of those guys.  So if a guy comes out and trashes the team publically and doesn't want to play here anymore, the guy establishing the new culture isn't going to keep him on the roster.  Rivera wants guys who are going to buy in from day one, not someone who won't.  So in any other circumstance, I agree with letting Dunbar sit here, but not with how Rivera needs to do a 180* turn on the locker room culture.

Fair point and a good one.

Honestly, it’s more than I thought they would get for him.....

He probably was going to be released, so it's better than nothing. 

If you dont want to play here, you will be shown the door. Trent will probably soon follow. 

Also, people shouldnt act like Dunbar is a game changer either. Is he worth more than a 5th? Probably, but he definitely had trouble staying healthy. 

I'm fine with it. Let's get hungry people in that want to play here.

Awful return. Looks even worse in light of the Allen deal.

Hard to even think of a way to play devil’s advocate on it. Better than just outright releasing him, I guess?

When is the last time we actually got a draft pick for a player? I'm trying to remember.

Dunbar made it clear a while ago that he didn’t want to play here. That gave away any leverage the team had. Rivera’s mantra coming in is that he wants guys that will sell out for the ultimate goal.

If Dunny didn’t want to be here, no problem.

I have had time to chew on this now. Honestly this is decent enough, I would be more about it if we didn’t just send a 5th for Kyle Allen. We break even it’s whatever.

Q didn’t want to be here, he wasn’t going to get what he wants from us and we were going to get nothing from him being here.

Bye

You don’t have to give a guy away for cents on the dollar to make a point.  He’s worth more than a 5th.

And as far as Allen. Anyone realize Haskins is the only one in the QB room right now? They brought in a kid who knows the system and can develop into a solid #2. I’m not going to call it brilliant or even savvy but it needed to be done.
