Report: Quinton Dunbar files motion to court in hopes of being at Seahawks training camp

Report: Quinton Dunbar files motion to court in hopes of being at Seahawks training camp

Former Washington and current Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar has filed a motion in the Florida court system, requesting to be allowed to leave the state in order to attend training camp in Seattle, TMZ Sports first reported.

The cornerback is currently awaiting a final verdict in relation to an arrest in May in Florida in which he was charged with four counts of armed robbery with a firearm. Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker is facing those charges as well as four counts of aggravated assault.

After being charged, Dunbar turned himself into the police days later and then was released on a $100,000 bond. Dunbar and his lawyers have remained adamant that the NFL defensive back is innocent.

Dunbar played five seasons in Washington and showed signs of being a shutdown cornerback at times. However, he also dealt with a fair share of injuries that limited his ability to perform. A combination of wanting a new contract in the offseason and frustration with the new personnel in charge of the Washington football team ultimately led to Dunbar being traded to the Seahawks.

Before ever playing a snap for his new team, Dunbar has found himself in a bad situation. He has issued an apology to the team and fans and hopes to eliminate distractions in the future.

While a verdict for Dunbar's motion has not yet been given, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Dunbar will be allowed to be with the team when training camp begins at the end of July. DeAndre Baker was already granted access to the Giants.

Let's make fun of everyone who's making fun of FedEx Field being empty in 2020

Let's make fun of everyone who's making fun of FedEx Field being empty in 2020

Did you hear the one about how FedEx Field being empty in 2020 will actually be the same as recent years, because not many fans have been showing up to the stadium lately anyways? 

Well, if you were on Twitter at all on Wednesday, then yes, you heard that one. Then you heard it some more. And after that, you kept hearing it. 

The best part, of course, is that it got funnier every time you came across it, too. 

Like, the first time you saw something like this, you chuckled to yourself:

Nailed it, Raj!

But then, when you happened upon another version of that totally original joke, such as the following from Kevin, you legit laughed out loud:

And just when you thought it couldn't get ANY BETTER, someone else dropped a comedic HAMMER on you:

Hahahahahahahahaha. That is the GOOD STUFF right there.

Wait. Forget the good stuff. Dev is over here chiming in with the GREAT STUFF: 

Then there's Karl — good ole, quick-witted Karl — who just brought the house down with this one-liner:

Karl always comes through, man. 

As 106.7 The Fan's Chad Dukes pointed out, these people should all be shamed. Maybe Twitter can suspend their accounts, too, or just outright ban them.

Is FedEx Field a wild environment? Nope. Has the attendance for Washington Football Team games been well below average in the late 2010s? You bet.

Neither of those facts, however, excuse the thousands of brilliant super-geniuses from recycling the same, played-out zing over and over again in reaction to the empty stadium news. But at least they all got one or two likes from other brilliant super-geniuses for their efforts.

How fishing — yep, fishing — may be helping Terry McLaurin improve as a wideout

How fishing — yep, fishing — may be helping Terry McLaurin improve as a wideout

This interview between Terry McLaurin and Sports Illustrated's Conor Orr contains solid info on why he views himself as a No. 1 receiver in the NFL and how he's seen Dwayne Haskins' attitude change over the past few months. That stuff is all certainly worth noting.

The more interesting angle, however, is that McLaurin — who is not only someone who gets seasick from time to time but is also a guy who's ALLERGIC TO SEAFOOD — has really taken up fishing this offseason. And he actually believes the new hobby can help him produce on Sundays.

Yes, that all sounds crazy. But if you allow him to explain it, it soon becomes difficult not to buy in at least a little bit.

“You can be out there all day and not get a bite,” McLaurin told Orr. “And in my line of work, you can be working for your opportunity and it may never come or it may not be the opportunity you thought. It doesn’t mean you quit working hard, whether that’s catching a fish or catching a touchdown.”

That's the primary lesson he's picked up while out on the water lately, and it's something that will help his focus and patience moving forward in Washington's offense. 

By the way, for those concerned fans of the team who are about to ask, no, McLaurin does not keep what he snags on his line. He's either thrown back or passed off the roughly 20 fish he's hauled in this summer, meaning that seafood allergy of his has been kept at bay. 

So, though his quote above shows a key similarity between fishing and football, that particular fact highlights the major difference. On a boat, he doesn't keep what he catches. His teammates, supporters and opponents know the opposite is true when he's on the field.
