Washington cornerback Quinton Dunbar requested either a trade or his release Monday evening, Ben Standig of TheAthletic.com reports.

Dunbar has one year remaining on the three-year contract he signed before the 2018 season. He is scheduled to make $3.5 million in salary and bonuses while counting $4.4 million against the cap in 2020.

It is unclear whether he wants a new contract.

Earlier in the day, J.P. Finlay of NBCSportsWashington.com reported that Dunbar is not planning to attend the voluntary portions of the team’s offseason workouts.

Linebacker Reuben Foster injured his knee in last year’s organized team activities, which Dunbar could have on his mind.

Dunbar started all 11 games he played for Washington last year and led the team with four interceptions. He missed nine games with injury during the 2018 season.

  1. I think the Redskins should focus on investing their money in players who play not the oft injured players that have dragged them down for the past few seasons. Just have too many of them.
    If he wants out, trade him. I dont blame him for thinking he should be paid more than Norman but this isnt how you handle your business. especially when you cant be counted on TO PLAY. YOU GET PAID TO PLAY.

  2. I love this

    Let him go, it is the best interest for Redskins and a mistake by whoever takes him

    He’s never played a full a season and when he has an average one he thinks he is the new darrelle Revis

    Please, let somebody else suffer him or at least, let this Child learn a lesson… you have not accomplished anything yet

  3. 5thorkid – I whole heartedly disagree with you. Dunbar is a difference maker and he is HOME GROWN. If the Skins are finally going to turn things around, they have to find a way to keep the home grown contributors in DC. Learn to fan.

  4. I say let him walk,why? he is no good to the team if he is on IR all of the time! Let him and Josh Norman walk!

  5. Make him play out his contract. He’s cheap and will be motivated to have a good year. Someone else can give him a big contract next year and pray he stays healthier from age 29 and beyond than he did in his early 20s
