Dunbar could be on the move, but at what cost?
Redskins cornerback Quinton Dunbar could be getting his wish. According to Mike Florio and Pro Football Talk, the Redskins are beginning to actively shop Dunbar.

Now, it is Mike Florio, so we should take this with a grain of salt. But, for a second, let’s say this is solid information. This means that Dunbar is not one of those guys that Rivera wants in the locker room and he is wanting more then what the Redskins are willing to pay him.

Dunbar took to Twitter to share his feelings, again:
What does this mean for the Redskins roster wise? They currently only have one proven cornerback that can play outside in Fabian Moreau. The other two proven cornerbacks on their roster are recently signed Kendall Fuller and second year man Jimmy Moreland. Both players strengths are in the slot. One of them might even get moved to free safety.
Depending on what they Redskins can get in return via draft capital, they can flip that pick into an outside cornerback. They might also be more likely to use their current third round pick on a cornerback and push picking a tight end to 4th round. This is a deep draft class for cornerbacks, so it is likely they will find a diamond in the 3rd round rough.
Time will tell what they ultimate decision will be. In the meantime, it makes for interesting pre-draft conversation for a team that is looking to continue to restock its roster.
