It's hard to find something positive to say about the Washington Redskins. They haven't been able to get much right over the last few years, and despite having a roster filled with talented players, Washington has been a bottom feeder.
It now looks like one of their better players on the roster wants out. John Keim of ESPN is reporting that cornerback Quinton Dunbar has requested that he be traded or released.
Keim reports that Dunbar spoke with the Redskins Monday night about his request. This probably came as a surprise to the Redskins, because according to Keim, Washington and Dunbar had been working on an extension for some time. But, Dunbar has had no conversation with the team since former Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera was hired as the Redskins new head coach.
Dunbar is the last year of his three year extension he signed with Washington in 2018, worth $10.5 million.
There's been no word from Washington if they will grant his wish or not. Dunbar was the second highest graded cornerback in the NFL last season. He recorded four interceptions (team leading) and eight passes defended in 11 games in 2019.
