Re: Dunbar demanding trade or release

OTL - i do think we as a group over emphasis what Penn and Flowers did last year. They were servicable at best imo and greatest ability was to stay healthy and up right.

I want an upgraded LT and LG.

Agree, but I also see the teams perspective in not wanting to do this - look at how screwed we are because Alex Smith got severely hurt with so much guaranteed money - now multiply that by all the other injuries teams have and players who underperform. Every team would be crippled with enormous amounts of dead cap money from players who were not contributing to the team.

I think the smartest thing for all sides would be to negotiate shorter contracts with a greater percentage of the contract guaranteed. Or perhaps, the NFL could create some cap-offset for injured players, so they didn't count against the cap. Then, teams and players would be negotiating purely on a basis of talent.

Couple of thoughts

- 18: numbers of games played out of the possible 32 last 2 years. Is he a guy that will play through pain? Will he play at 80% or does he personally require him being 95% and above?

- 28 years old when 2020 starts, that not old.

- 56.9% completion rate against this season. That is excellent.

- 52: times targeted last season, thats low, 77th rank among CBs, could this mean J No just left to many guys open so a QB didnt have to look his way? That his sample size is too small to forecast future success comfortably? or is it just bc he only played 11 games.

--------------------------

What I dont understand is the timing. Why now? RR just meet his staff for the first time on Monday Feb 10. He and his agent had to know that the new regime would need some time to get caught up and then address contract concerns.

Initially I thought this issue of not having him resigned already was another Bruce failure to do basic communication with players. But then he says they did talk previously but he hasnt talked to the new regime yet.

Perhaps he and his agent wanted to get his name circulating out there as early as possible so teams may consider acquiring him as they also come up with a FA plan.

--------------

My bottom line -

(1) I like Dunbar, I dont see him as the No. 2 overall best corner in the NFL like PPF does but I do acknowledge that they know more than I do with my fan eye ball test.

If he wants a 5/65M/40G ... I think I would maybe might do that but that would really be stretching me. Much more comfortable at like a 4/40/30 deal. Which who knows, maybe he would have taken last year
(2) I dont blame a player for contract efforts if they are going into their final year.

https://www.pff.com/news/nfl-pff-ran...hrough-week-17
I agree and I don't think the market would give him that 5/65 million simply based on his recent injury history. But Dunbar on 3.25 million this year...he is an extension-earned type player on this team. I would make him an offer.

Re: Dunbar demanding trade or release

I agree.
This little part of the Washington Post article sums it up in the business side of things. Where this conversation needs to be. Not on the emotional fan side:
"The 27-year-old Dunbar, who joined the Redskins as an undrafted free agent in 2015, had a breakout effort in 2019. He emerged as the teamís top cornerback and was ranked the No. 2 cornerback in the NFL by analytics website Pro Football Focus. Dunbar posted a career-high four interceptions in 11 games, but he suffered a hamstring injury and finished the season on injured reserve for the second consecutive year.
If Dunbar suffered another serious injury before he landed a new deal, it would have a significant impact on his bargaining power with either the Redskins or another team. The 20 highest-paid cornerbacks in the NFL average at least $10 million per year, with the Miami Dolphinsí Xavien Howard leading the league with an average of $15.05 million. Redskins cornerback Josh Norman is No. 2 at $15 million."
Dunbar is just laying the ground work on negotiations and why he will not be at OTA's. I think we all remember our MLB suffering a severe knee injury on first day of OTA's last year. I do not blame him for his business stance.

Re: Dunbar demanding trade or release

I donít blame him either, but I also donít blame the team if theyíre reluctant to give him big money based on his injury history. Should be interesting to see how this goes with Rivera.

Re: Dunbar demanding trade or release

I really do think we will have forgotten about this by the time the season starts. Its a slow part of the year, so we all spend more time discussing and debating things which are ultimately barely news-worthy.

Agreed. I don't blame Dunbar for seeking out a new contract. That being said he signed an extension a couple years back so it's not like he's making the league minimum. I leave it in RR's hands.

Most likely scenario - Dunbar has 2 INTs in SB LV (not for us).

Re: Dunbar demanding trade or release

Dunbar has seen so many of his fellow players, ON THIS TEAM, get hurt. If you donít have guaranteed money in your contract, and you get hurt, you get NOTHING. Dunbar is getting $3.5 million and CBís at his level (elite) get $10 mill. So heís trying to protect himself. I get it.

Dunbarís a player we REALLY want to keep. He was a nobody UDFA who changed positions and is now the second-best CB in the NFL. The Redskins got him super-cheap and now heís going to be paid. Letís get him signed up and move on.

With our upcoming fierce pass rush (with Chase) our DBís are going to have a field day. With the release of all the players who were OVERPAID and did not play or grossly underperform (Norman, Richardson, Davis, Reed, McCoy, etc) we will have cap money to keep our best players and build a winning culture. Sign up Dunbar and pay him what he has earned.

I think itís a good chance we will bring back Kendall Fuller. Bring him back at CB to see if he can recover his mojo that he had with us. Just a cheap, one-year contract. Whatís not to like?

While I agree with you , I will give you a little something . Two years ago , when The Skins decided to not pick up the option on J. Doctson ( WR ) , we were at a party with a guy who worked with the Skins Med/Training staff . After a few cold ones , he finally answered us about Doctson . His reply Ö. biggest crybaby he had been around at NFL level . Next biggest crybaby Ö Dunbar . Maybe he is not really ready for camp RR / Del Rio ?

Difference between Doctson and Dunbar was that Doctson was a total draft bust, and he was a first round draft pick at that. Not even sure if heís in the NFL at all. He was drafted high and just never came close to filling his potential.

Dunbar was an unheard of Undrafted Free Agent (UDFA) who started as a WR. Then Gruden had him switch to CB. Dunbar has improved every season and is now the second or third best CB in the NFL. Heís got one season left on his contract. No guaranteed money, so if he gets hurt, he gets nothing. So I see where heís coming from. There have been so many injuries on this team, including some really bad one like Alex Smith, so I can understand an outstanding player like Dunbar worried about getting hurt before he gets a new, big contract for his level of play.

Get him in a good contract with guaranteed money and letís move down the road. Heís going to be one of the cornerstones (no pun intended!) of the defense.

Im fine with the team keeping him . Just that maybe he is not very tough , he might not be RR / JDR type of player ? Would love to have a pair of great corners for the next few years .

Yeah, the hit on Dunbar is his injuries and missed games. If the redskins end up trading him itís probably because of his injury issues. Or because heís not buying into RRís program. But if they trade him for draft picks it still means that they need to find good to draft picks or FA at:

LB
CB x 2 ( Dunbar gone)
FS

So I still think the Redskins will try to re-sign Dunbar as a homegrown talent!

Re: Dunbar demanding trade or release

So we have estimated a value of a contract per year of 10 mil per in a 3-4 year range.

His value on the field, best CB and best coverage guy in the secondary. Among peers, PFF has him as one of the top coverage guys...SS mentioned he doesn't get thrown at a ton, meaning he is doing his job.

So lets now look at his Trade Value...I think you throw 1st or 2nd round as laughable. I don't think we could get a 3rd round either based on injury history.

So you would take a 4th rounder? dumb move

Re: Dunbar demanding trade or release

We were 3-13 last season. Our pass defense was horrid on 3rd downs. If he wants to stay and play for real defensive coaches fine, but if it not, I will put faith in our newly minted VP of player personnel and RR to find suitable replacements.
