Another potential acquisition for the Seattle Seahawks at cornerback is off of the table.
On Tuesday, Ian Rapoport reported that former Seahawks starter Quinton Dunbar signed with the Arizona Cardinals. Dunbar appeared in just six games for the Seahawks in 2020, as he was dealing injuries.

Dunbar had previously signed with the Detroit Lions but was released from the team after undisclosed personal reasons saw him miss much of t raining camp.
While the ‘Hawks never seemed to be actively pursuing the 29 year-old, it’s always worth noting when a familiar face is taken off of the market, as the Seahawks have a tendency to bring back defensive players for multiple stints.
I, for one, was never clamoring for Dunbar to return. His downright horrendous performance against the Bills weighs heavy on my mind, and even when healthier, he wasn’t all that good (see the thumbnail photo for this article).
At this point, if the Seahawks are going to acquire a new corner, it’s only really worth it if they are a significant improvement over our current group (i.e. a Stephon Gilmore-level player). And I’m not even convinced we really have the draft capital and/or expendable personnel to do so. For now, it seems like we are stuck with what we have, and what we have is... not good.
