Lions Signing CB Quinton Dunbar To One-Year Deal


The Detriot Lions are signing CB Quinton Dunbar to a one-year contract on Monday, according to his agency. 

Dunbar reportedly had visits set up with the Lions and Cardinals this week, but it looks like Detroit proved to be his best option in the end. 

Dunbar, 28, originally signed on with Washington as an undrafted free agent out of Florida back in 2015. He was waived at the start of the 2015 season and was later added to the practice squad before being promoted a few weeks later.

Washingon re-signed Dunbar to a three-year, $10.5 million extension through the 2020 season in January of 2018. They later traded him to the Seahawks for a fifth-round pick in 2020. 

Dunbar made a base salary of $3.25 million for the 2020 season. 

In 2020, Dunbar appeared in six games and recorded 30 total tackles, one interception and five pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 110 overall cornerback out of 121 qualifying players. 

We had him included in our Top 100 Available 2021 Free Agents list.
