A divorce between the Bengals and Carlos Dunlap appears inevitable.
Whether it happens during the 2020 season or the 2021 offseason remains to be seen, but it’s becoming clear that Dunlap’s days in the Queen City are numbered following his latest outburst.
According to Sports Illustrated reporter Albert Breer, the Bengals already have Dunlap on the trade block.

In recent weeks, Dunlap has been very vocal about his frustrations with not only being demoted, but the manner in which it was done.
Instead of the coaching staff meeting with Dunlap and explaining why they were reducing his role, they simply let him find out when he saw the depth chart on a white board. That’s no way to treat one of the greatest to ever play in Cincinnati, and he clearly is ready for a fresh start.
It sounds like the Bengals may be ready for that as well.
The 2020 NFL Trade Deadline is Nov. 3rd at 4 pm EST. If the Bengals can’t move Dunlap by then, they may simply release him. However, the team will be on the hook for $2,250,000 in dead cap if he’s cut. And seeing as how the team was willing to put up with the Cordy Glenn fiasco last year without cutting him during the season, it’s probably more likely that Dunlap is let go sometime during the 2021 offseason.
