Dunbar, 27, spent his first five NFL season in Washington after going undrafted in 2015. It was the Redskins who were responsible for converting Dunbar from wide receiver – the position he played in college at Florida – to defensive back. Dunbar, who has one year remaining on his contract, requested to be traded or released in February.

Seattle got a good player in Dunbar that could really show out in the Seahawks defense. Could be headed for a big payday next season

The Redskins initiated a flurry of activity on the defensive side of the ball Monday, also releasing defensive backs Montae Nicholson, Breon Borders, Dee Delaney, Coty Sensabaugh and Kayvon Webster, while re-signing defensive lineman Caleb Brantley.

Washington also acquired quarterback Kyle Allen in a trade with Carolina earlier Monday. The Redskins agreed to send a fifth-round pick to the Panthers in the deal.
