Veteran cornerback Quinton Dunbar might finally get the change of scenery he has been looking for. According to Pro Football Talk, Washington Redskins are willing to let go of Dunbar and have made him available in trade talks.

Dunbar wanted out of Washington since the season ended, and has even made an official trade request. Redskins weren’t eager to accommodate him at first, but it looks like they have changed their mind in recent weeks.

Dunbar is coming off a productive season in which he had 37 tackles, eight pass deflections, and career-high four interceptions. Backed by these numbers he feels that he deserved a better contract than $3.25 million he is set to earn in 2020. The issue is also that none of the money he has coming is guaranteed.

Since the Redskins don’t view the corner position as a priority at the moment, they are unwilling to give Quinton Dunbar the contract improvements he is looking for. Instead, they decided to try and get some assets for him in return while allowing him to get the money somewhere else.

Dunbar entered the league in 2015 as an undrafted free agent. In the past five seasons, he made 25 starts, contributing with 150 tackles, 1.0 sacks, 35 pass deflections, and 9 interceptions.
