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

Washington Football

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.
