The Redskins re-signed restricted free agent cornerback Quinton Dunbar on Monday, and in turn, perhaps sealed their fate with Bashaud Breeland.

The three-year deal will keep him on the roster through 2020. 

In three seasons with the Redskins after going undrafted after a four-year career at Florida where he played wide receiver, Dunbar has logged three interceptions in seven starts as a converted cornerback.

He finished the 2017 season with a career high 35 tackles, and registered an interception off Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz in the Redskins' Week 7 loss.

Dunbar primarily served as Breeland's backup, but when on the field, has shown good range and physicality. 

Dunbar announced his new contract via Instagram.

Breeland is set for unrestricted free agency, and sources informed NBC Sports Washington that the team intended to let the cornerback pursue his options in free agency

With Dunbar now locked up, there's little reason to expect Breeland will be back with the Redskins. 

In addition to Dunbar, the team now has Josh Norman, Kendall Fuller, Fabian Moreau and Josh Holsey under contract through at least 2019.
