Report: Redskins CB Quinton Dunbar Won’t Take Part in the Skins Voluntary Offseason Workouts

Redskins cornerback Quinton Dunbar does not intend to take part in the team’s voluntary offseason workouts according to JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington.

Dunbar is scheduled to make a mere $4.4 million in the final year of his current contract-a travesty when you consider fellow Redskins cornerback Josh Norman made $15 million in 2019 and was not nearly as effective. Originally an undrafted free agent out of Florida, the 27-year-old Dunbar has developed into one of the best cover corners in the league in his five years in Washington.

Pro Football Focus rated him as the No.3-overall corner out of 209 qualifiers when healthy. And health is the only knock against the talented Dunbar, as he has fought injuries the past two seasons and has been able to suit up for only 18 out of a possible 32 games.

Finlay reports that Dunbar’s decision to skip the the offseason program is primarily and effort to get completely healthy and avoid unnecessary injuries rather than a contract negotiation ploy. And it is hard to blame him considering he has no guaranteed money left on his current deal.

It remains unclear whether he wants a new contract from the franchise or would prefer to test the waters as an unrestricted free agent in 2021.
