Earlier today it was reported that Redskins CB Quinton Dunbar was skipping OTAs as he enters his contract year. JP Finlay cited Reuben Foster major knee injury during OTAs last year, and Dunbar's contract situation as possible reasons to miss the voluntary workouts. There appears to be more to it than that.

John Keim reports that Quinton Dunbar has request a trade or his release from the Redskins. Dunbar was in negotiations with the team before Bruce Allen's firing, and the hiring of Head Coach Ron Rivera. He has not been in contact with Rivera, and now wants out.

This will be the 2nd year in a row that a major starter has requested a trade or his release. Last year we didn't find out until the first week of June that Trent Williams wanted out. The team has more options, and time, now that they know Dunbar's request before free agency and the draft. There is the possibility that they could still work out a new deal, or move on depending on Dunbar's demands. Now we wait to see how Rin Rivera reacts.
