In exchange for Dunlap the Bengals will receive a 2021 seventh-round draft pick and a player. The player is offensive lineman B.J. Finney.
A report came out this morning from Ian Rapoport via Twitter that the Cincinnati Bengals have told veteran defensive end Carlos Dunlap to stay home. The team had trade talks centered around their disgruntled pass-rusher, and those continued throughout the day Wednesday. Following this the Pro Bowler was traded to the Seahawks.

Much of this seems to be the direct result of a moment in last week’s game against the Browns in which Dunlap was caught on camera having an altercation with a coach. Dunlap has been very vocal about his frustration with the way he has been demoted this year. He even went as far as attempting to sell his house via Twitter.

Dunlap’s time in Cincy is at an end and the team should be much better for it. Dunlap has been uncharacteristically negative this year and attempted to divide the locker room.
The Seahawks will look to have the Pro Bowler back to his old form.
