Big news because Dunbar is actually a very good LB, he was suspended for 4 games by the NFL a few weeks ago.

Wow. He's actually been a pretty underrated player for the past few years. I hope the Falcons take a look at him.

Seriously? He must have really ticked off Fisher.

Ray Ray Armstrong playing so well might have helped but I am still shocked. Dunbar is such a good downhill run stopper. A little too undisciplined at times and a bit of a liability in man coverage but a great run stopper.

I remember him embarrassing UMD one time when he was at BC.

Always a bit undersized, was impressed he has been in the league as long as he has.

Wonder if he failed another test before he got to serve this suspension. He was a very valuable player last year. Looks like it's Ray-Rays time to shine.

This is a surprise. Dunbar is definitely a quality OLB.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say there's more to this then him just being cut. Something else must have happened.

This.

Also how bad must it be for Jeff Fisher to be done with him? Laughing

Fisher reacted differently to Dunbar's suspension than the others. There was something more to it.

Disappointed though. He'll be missed against the run. That all said, once Ray Ray is ready to play, we'll have some serious defensive speed.

How's Ogletree holding up so far?

Armstrong is listed at 6-3, 217... that can't be right can it?

I obviously know he's a former Safety and all but how can he be more than a special teamer if he plays LB and is only 217? Even Cato June [another former Safety who was moved to LB] was 225 pounds at 6-0.
