The Cardinals are adding some veteran depth to their defensive backfield.

According to Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus, cornerback Quinton Dunbar is signing with Arizona’s practice squad.

After playing for the Seahawks in 2020, Dunbar spent the offseason program and much of the preseason with the Lions. Detroit released him on n Aug. 14, but discussed a reunion when second-year corner Jeff Okudah tore his Achilles earlier this month.

That did not work out and now Dunbar is headed to Arizona.

Dunbar entered the league with Washington as an undrafted free agent in 2015. He appeared in 58 games with 25 starts for Washington through 2019, recording nine interceptions and 35 passes defensed.

He played six games for Seattle last year, making one interception and breaking up five passes.

  1. Solid depth addition behind the starters. AZ had an extremely strong starting corner group especially w/ Byron Murphy having hit his stride having a pro bowl caliber season & I can’t remember a rookie who’s played at such A HIGH level all of camp and his first few games, with Wilson dropping what shoulda been 2INTs yesterday likely due to nerves. In coverage Marco Wilson was one of the highest gradesd cover corners in the NFL over the weekend via PFF. Dude can ball and will be a great one for a long time to come. #3 CB Robert Alford is an excellent far above average Corner who’s playing at high level himself Now that he’s healthy as being out there with his team in season is incredibly important to him!!!
    Rookie CB Tay Gowan is also an incredibly gifted young corner talent he just needs his rough edges polished Up before he gets on the field. Dunbar was signed to play if someone goes down which makes sense, SEA signing him was always stupid because Dunbar is at his best playing man cov not in zone defenses constantly. He is awesome in coverage and 6”2/195 32.5in long arms4.44 40 n 7.10 cone . On the other hand z6”1/198pd Tay Gowan with 31 3/4in long arms running a 4.49 40 time w/ a 6.86 3 cone speed.
    Having Dunbar on the team will be great for two reasons one helping develop Gowan a bit as they’re very similar Athletically but if something happens to one of AZs 3 starters he can step in and play at a high Level especially in this defense which suits his skills set as a man cover corners. This is a good cheap signing for AZ and helps the defense in a few different ways. This secondary is stacked and it’s gonna get better the more and more they play
