The Green Bay Packers have dealt with injuries all season, but the defense has taken big hits, especially the cornerback room. The Packers are addressing that position with a recent move made today.
According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Packers held a visit for former Washington and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar.
A couple of minutes after the report from Pelissero, the 29-year old cornerbacks was signed to the Packers practice squad after his visit, via PFF reporter Doug Kyed.
The Packers added Dunbar after Jaire Alexander was placed on IR last week and Kevin King dealing with a shoulder injury after the 25-22 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
There’s familiarity between Dunbar and the Packers. Defensive coordinator Joe Berry coached Dunbar during his time in Washington.
In his career, Dunbar has totaled 180 tackles, 10 interceptions, 40 pass deflections, 1 fumble recovery, and one sack. He hasn’t played this season but has seen time on the Detriot Lions and Arizona Cardinals practice squad.
Dunbar has the possibility to jump to the active roster with King and Alexander injured. Packers cornerbacks who aren’t dealing with injuries are Eric Stokes, Chandon Sullivan, Shemar Jean-Charles, Isaac Yiadom, and Rasul Douglas.
The Packers practice squad will now have two cornerbacks with Dunbar and Kabion Ento.
