Quinton Dunbar‘s time with the Cardinals has come to an end. The club released him from the 16-man practice squad on Tuesday, making him a full-fledged free agent.
Dunbar joined the Cards just one week ago to backstop the team’s Byron Murphy-headed cornerback corps. Before that, he spent the offseason with the Lions and later showed his stuff for the Bills.
The Cardinals have been working with Murphy and fourth-round rookie Marco Wilson as their starting corners with some help from Robert Alford and others. Darqueze Dennard is out of the picture following his release – ditto for Malcolm Butler, who currently resides on Arizona’s reserve/retired list.
Two years ago, Dunbar broke out with Washington via a four-interception season that ended with the former UDFA allowing just a 61.2 passer rating while targeted. Washington’s new regime traded Dunbar to Seattle in 2020, and an injury ended a less successful season after six games. The six-year veteran will now look to bounce back elsewhere.
