Word earlier this month was that cornerback Quinton Dunbar wanted Washington to trade or release him this offseason, but it seemed like that he might back off that stance when he said he was hoping to get clarity on where he stands with a new coaching staff in place.

Dunbar said he expected to get that clarity during an upcoming conversation with head coach Ron Rivera, but his interactions with the team haven’t gone as hoped. Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that Dunbar wanted to discuss his contract, which expires after the 2020 season, but the team declined to do so.

As a result, Dunbar remains “resolute” in his desire to move on to a different team this offseason. There’s no word on the team’s willingness to consider those options, which may leave Dunbar to work on his own in the coming months.

Dunbar had 37 tackles and four interceptions while starting all 11 games he played last season.

  1. Dunbar has become one of the better players on the roster in recent memory. He’s going to have a market if he wants out. The question is whether or not that market is favorable after 2020 if he demands a trade and only plays one year on another team under his current contract. You have less leverage right now, play your butt off in 2020 and hit the market while. This is a bad look and a bad strategy.

  2. Guess we’ll see if the new regime is as stubborn as the old one was with Trent Williams.
