Quinton Dunbar, Detroit Lions, Agree to Contract
As a 28-year-old six-year veteran, Dunbar had a very underwhelming 2020 campaign which was unfortunately littered with injuries. After Seattle traded for Dunbar, which cost them a fifth-round pick, the 6-foot-2, 197-pound cornerback was placed on season ending injured reserve and would later go on to have knee surgery. However, Dunbar is expected to be ready and fully healthy for the 2021 season.
Dunbar finished his season with Seattle having started just six games and accounting for 28 solo tackles, one interception, and allowed 30 receptions on 47 targets. Before being traded to the Seahawks, Dunbar played for the Washington Football Team where, in 2019, he had the best season of his career. Dunbar played and started in 11 games for Washington in 2019 while tallying 36 solo tackles, four interceptions, and allowed just 29 receptions on 52 targets on his way to earning a career-high 87.6 PFF grade.
2018 was again lost to injury for Dunbar after being placed on season ending injured reserve with a shin injury. Dunbar finished his 2018 campaign having played in seven games and starting six of them while totaling 36 solo tackles, two interceptions, and allowed 31 receptions on 44 targets earning a PFF grade of 66.5. Moreover, Dunbar’s 2017 season featured his second best career PFF grade of 74.7 following a year in which he appeared in 15 games while producing 26 solo tackles, one interception, and allowed 20 receptions on 35 targets.
As a second-year player in 2016, Dunbar pieced together an average season having played in 14 games while totaling 22 solo tackles, one interception, and allowed 21 receptions on 31 targets on his way to earning a 61.8 PFF grade. As an undrafted free agent rookie in 2015, Dunbar again had a fairly average season. Playing in 11 games and starting two of them, Dunbar recorded a modest 12 solo tackles, one interception, and allowed 11 receptions on 23 targets.
