Former Redskins Cornerback Blasts Team for Recent Signing

If you watch the video above, you'll find that the diehard Redskins fans and sports analysts on 106.7 The Fan in Washington thought that Quinton Dunbar was "below average" throughout his stint in the nation's capital. This may have been the reason that Dunbar was sent to Seattle in exchange for a pick.

However, the cornerback seemed to be bewildered by the Redskins' subsequent signing of Ronald Darby on a one-year, $4 million deal.

The Redskins don't have the most favorable reviews as an organization as of late, considering the saga involving top-tier offensive tackle Trent Williams and the overhaul of some key coaching and front office staff members. Dunbar seems to reflect this in the second of his two comments to the post.

The Redskins, however, don't seem to be making any huge mistakes in this move. Darby, formerly a member of the division rival Philadelphia Eagles, has posted a career approximate value -- a stat used by Pro Football Reference to attach a number value to each player's contributions to the team -- of 22 after five years in the NFL. Dunbar has only posted an AV of 12. He does have more interceptions than Darby throughout his career, recording four in 2019 alone, but has broken up 30 fewer passes in nearly the same exact amount of games played.

Darby is a relatively cheap rental on a one-year deal where he can prove he can still play at a high level after health problems have affected his career, including when a hip flexor injury forced him onto the IR at the end of the 2019 season.

Along with Darby, Washington has signed cornerback Kendall Fuller (formerly of the Chiefs) this offseason in hopes of rebuilding a secondary that allowed 35 passing touchdowns last year, the third-most in the entire NFL in 2019.
