Quinton Dunbar and the Redskins are still at odds. Sources close to the cornerback tell ESPN.com’s Josina Anderson (on Twitter) that his camp has asked to “discuss a reasonable contract restructure,” but the team has refused to engage in talks. With that, Dunbar “remains resolute” in his demand to be cut or traded.

Of course, what constitutes a “reasonable” proposal comes down to a matter of perspective. It’s possible that Dunbar’s team is coming in strong after he graded out as Pro Football Focus’ No. 2 overall ranked cornerback. For reference, Redskins cornerbacks Fabian Moreau and Josh Norman placed around No. 100 on the list.

Dunbar enjoyed a breakout year in 2019 and he has been looking to parlay that performance into a long-term deal. The Redskins, so far, have been unwilling to give him the security that he seeks.

Last year, Dunbar was in preliminary talks with the Bruce Allen-led front office, but that came to a halt after new head coach Ron Rivera came into the picture.

As it stands, Dunbar has one year left on his three-year, $10.5M deal. At the time of signing, Dunbar was mostly a reserve. Now that he’s proven to be a quality starting cornerback, he’s vastly underpaid.

After parting ways with Josh Norman earlier this month, Rivera could be poised to completely overhaul his cornerback group.
