Al Galdi explains why the Redskins’ situation with Quinton Dunbar may not be salvageable…
Yesterday, ESPN NFL reporter Josina Anderson in a tweet from said that Dunbar “had reached out to the team to discuss a reasonable contract restructure but the club declined the conversation” and that Dunbar remained “resolute in his desire to be released or traded.”
Then we go a tweet from Julie Donaldson of NBC Sports Washington saying that Dunbar was planning on skipping OTAs (organized team activities) in the 2019 offseason but did not out of good will to then DB coach Ray Horton.
Last week Redskins insider JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reported that Dunbar was planning on skipping OTAs this offseason due to having no guaranteed money left on his contract and having seen what happened with linebacker Reuben Foster in the 2019 offseason, when he suffered what now is believed to be a torn left ACL, LCL and MCL and nerve damage on the third snap of the Redskins’ first OTA practice of 2019.
Later that day we got multiple reports that Dunbar wanted to be traded or released. ESPN Redskins insider John Keim and Redskins insider Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reported that Dunbar had talked with the Redskins’ previous administration about an extension, but that per a source said there had been no contact with the Redskins since Ron was hired. Redskins insider JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington tweeted out comments from Dunbar, who said of Ron Rivera and his staff, “I don’t know them and they don’t know me. It is what it is.”
Then on February 12th, Dunbar softened his stance big time to Doc Walker off the air during Doc and Galdi. Dunbar said that he wasn’t requesting to be traded or released; he just wanted to see where he stood. He also said that he was set to meet with Ron Rivera the next day.
