Packers will sign CB Quinton Dunbar to practice squad

By Zach Kruse

Quinton Dunbar’s visit to Green Bay on Tuesday will end in a signing with the Packers.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Packers are expected to sign Dunbar to the team’s practice squad.

The addition provides instant depth at cornerback for the Packers, who are dealing with shoulder injuries of various degrees to starters Jaire Alexander and Kevin King.

Dunbar, an undrafted free agent in 2015, has played in 64 career games over five seasons in the NFL. He was with Packers defensive coordinator Joe Barry in Washington for his first two seasons in the NFL, and he most recently played in Seattle for the Seahawks in 2020.

Dunbar has defended 40 career passes, including 10 interceptions. He intercepted a career-high four passes during an impressive season with Washington in 2019. He was shipped to the Seahawks for a fifth-round pick in 2020.

By signing Dunbar to the practice squad, the Packers will keep a roster spot open and provide an opportunity to elevate the veteran cornerback twice to the gameday roster. With Alexander on injured reserve and King’s status uncertain, Dunbar could be on the field for the Packers sooner rather than later.
