Seattle acquired Dunlap in the middle of last season for BJ Finney and it was the seventh round in 2021, and he was one of, if not the best passers, defending the Seahawks in the second half of the season.
Dunlap has a year left on his contract when the Seahawks bought him, and he is scheduled to have a maximum value of $ 14,037,500 with a maximum amount of $ 0 if cut, so John Schneider and the Seahawks decision-makers thought. That Dunlap, at his age and with the current highest circumstances, was not worth the $ 14 million price tag for another season.
It was talked that the team were hoping to sign the 32-year-old again, but at a cheaper rate. But it is very likely that Dunlap will find a new home in the deal he wants.
Seattle now has about $ 14 million to spend on the offseason to defend Russell Wilson by signing independent spies or spending elsewhere.
But this may not be the news you want to hear to start the week.
