Carlos Dunlap gets his wish: Bengals trade former Florida standout
Carlos Dunlap and the Cincinnati Bengals are finally divorced. The Bengals are sending the former Florida standout to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick and offensive lineman B.J. Finney on Wednesday.
The move comes after Dunlap has been airing his dirty laundry on social media. On Sunday, after Cincinnati’s loss to the Cleveland Browns, Dunlap used his Twitter account to post a for sale ad for his residence. It followed a Saturday post of a photo on Instagram calling out Bengals head coach Zac Taylor and defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo about his usage. On Monday of last week, he hosted an IG Live session, mentioning how he had been “frustrated with [his] role.” Dunlap defended his IG Live session saying his frustration was natural for being on a 1-4-1 team.
Dunlap and the Bengals part after more than a decade together. Cincinnati drafted him in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft at No. 54 overall. A two-time Pro Bowl selection (2015, 16), Dunlap has played in 155 games, starting 115, recording 490 tackles, including 103 TFL and 82.5 sacks.
Dunlap reacted to the trade as you might expect, showing he could not get out of Cincinnati fast enough. Bleacher Report shared a video from his Instagram account where he took down the nameplate on his reserved parking spot.
