Per the Detroit Lions, the team has released CB Quinton Dunbar.
Dunbar was signed by the Lions earlier in 2021, during free agency, but his time in Detroit will end after only a few short months. The veteran was set to be the #2 CB behind Jeff Okudah, but after missing the majority of training camp due to personal reasons was released by the Lions. Dunbar, 29-years old, spent 2020 with Seattle where he played in six games and had 30 tackles and one interception.
Former Seattle Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar is reportedly signing a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Dunbar only played six games for the Seahawks in 2020 due to a suspension stemming from an off-field incident but still finished the season with 30 tackles, five pass deflections, and an interception. The Lions were one of the worst defenses against the pass in 2020 and will attempt to rebuild their secondary with the addition of the sixth-year cornerback, pairing him opposite of the former top-three draft pick Jeff Okudah. The Lions' new head coach Dan Campbell has made a flurry of moves this offseason, making Detroit an intriguing team to follow into the 2021 season.
Seahawks' CB Quinton Dunbar (knee) was placed on IR prior to their 28-21 win over the Cardinals in Week 11. HC Pete Carroll stated Dunbar may return within the league's minimum three-week IR activation window, per source.
Dunbar was traded to the Seahawks in the offseason from Washington and hasn't quite lived up to expectations, totaling 30 tackles, five pass deflections and an interception in six games for Seattle. The Seahawks' secondary has struggled immensely in 2020, allowing 347.3 net passing yards per game.
Quinton Dunbar (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game at Miami.
Dunbar will sit out for a second straight week, leaving a very thin secondary even more vulnerable. Tre Flowers will get the start in place of Dunbar.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says DB Quinton Dunbar (questionable, knee) is "ready to play."
Dunbar was listed as questionable after not practicing Friday. He'll likely match up most often with Michael Gallup in Week 3.
