The Redskins are trading disgruntled cornerback Quinton Dunbar to Seattle in exchange for a fifth-round pick, ESPN reports.

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.

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.
