Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar missed valuable time with his teammates as he waited on the NFL’s exempt list after his arrest for armed robbery earlier in May. Once the prosecutor declined to file charges, Dunbar was removed from the list and could resume team activities.
Dunbar can start practicing with his teammates as soon as Friday after he completes his COVID-19 testing and passes his physical at the VMAC.
Coach Pete Carroll is excited to see what Dunbar can bring to the field.
“He’s a good football player,” Carroll said Wednesday after practice. “He’s a playmaking guy, very creative, really good consistency over his years, he’s good size, really good tackler – I think he didn’t miss a tackle last year or something crazy like that. So he just adds to the competition, should make us better. He’s going to put the pressure on our guys to step up once he gets going.”
But Dunbar will need to catch up quickly after sitting out the first two weeks of camp.
“He’s a ways behind right now because he’s missing this time, and we need to make sure he’s in good shape, get him started well, but very competitive player,” Carroll continued. “We’re just trying to get a little bit better at a lot of places, and he might help us do that.”
