Seattle Seahawks release former Florida pass rusher, making him a free agent
The Seattle Seahawks acquired DE Carlos Dunlap II in a midseason trade with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2020.
In 8 games with the Seahawks, Dunlap — a former Florida standout — made an impact on the Seahawks’ pass rush, recording 5.0 sacks and 14 QB hits.
But, on Monday, the team announced it was parting ways with Dunlap, making him a free agent:

Dunlap can still return to Seattle. Indeed, that may be the plan, as he had a great finish to the 2020 season. But, for now, other teams can get in contact with the 32-year-old defender and former second-round draft pick (in the 2010 NFL Draft).
Dunlap was with the Bengals from 2010 to when he was traded to Seattle midway through last season. Where he ends up next remains to be seen.
