Quinton Dunbar removed from NFL's exempt list, can join team

Seattle Seahawks

Cornerback Quinton Dunbar's tenure with the Seattle Seahawks has been a rollercoaster ride, to say the least.

After being implicated in an armed robbery along with Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker in May, an investigation into his overall involvement remained fluid. 

Earlier this week, the Broward County state attorney announced Dunbar would not face charges. 

Now, the NFL is removing Dunbar from the Commissioner Exempt list, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.

Dunbar can rejoin his team as soon as Sunday.

The Seahawks acquired the 28-year-old in a trade with Washington in March. He is expected to challenge Tre Flowers for a starting job.

Dunbar, 28, participated in the team’s virtual offseason program despite facing four counts of armed robbery from an incident May 13.

He is entering the final year of his contract.
