Carlos Dunlap

A second-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, Carlos Dunlap went on to spend the next 11 years in the black and orange stripes. He made it to two Pro Bowls during his time in Cincinnati (2015 and 2016) and didn’t miss a single game from 2015 to 2018.

Dunlap has spent the last season and a half with the Seahawks and had a nice season for them in 2021. He appeared in all 17 games and finished the year with 8.5 sacks, which is an impressive number no matter how you swing it, but Dunlap did that damage at 32 years old.

Entering his age-33 season, Dunlap isn’t starting-material anymore but he’s still a really good depth piece who can get after the quarterback.

Hopefully Dunlap can continue to be a valuable piece for a defense moving forward. He had some really great seasons in Cincinnati and is showing that he still has plenty left in the tank. Dunlap should find a team for 2022 and when he does, it’ll be fun to watch him get after it once again.
