Dunbar has one year remaining on his deal. He is scheduled to make $3.5 million in salary and bonuses while counting $4.4 million against the cap. None of his salary is guaranteed.
According to Keim, Dunbar had been in talks with the previous regime about an extension but he had not had any contact with the Redskins since the hiring of Ron Rivera.
Dunbar, 27, started all 11 games he played last year and led the team with four interceptions.
He signed with Washington as an undrafted free agent in 2015. He played receiver in college before former Redskins head coach Jay Gruden decided to convert him to cornerback because of his length and speed.
