The Cincinnati Bengals have announced their trade of Carlos Dunlap to the Seattle Seahawks for B.J. Finney and a seventh-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Finney, who weighs in at 6-4 and 318 pounds, is a fifth-year player out of Kansas State who was originally a college free agent signee of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2015. He was with the Steelers through 2019 before signing with the Seahawks as an unrestricted free agent in March. He has played in 65 career games with 13 starts. He will give the Bengals some much-needed depth at center and guard.

“We’re excited to get Finney in the building here,” said Bengals head coach Zac Taylor in a press release. “We’ve watched him play over the years from afar, and we like what we’re adding to the offensive line with him. He has good veteran experience and provides us with needed versatility.”

Dunlap, an 11th-year pro out of Florida, was originally a second-round pick of the Bengals in 2010. He has played in 155 career games (115 starts) and recorded 525 tackles and 82.5 sacks. He is also a two-time Pro Bowl selection.

“Carlos had many fine seasons here and showed rare physical talent that took him to multiple Pro Bowls,” said Bengals President Mike Brown. “I will always remember the role he played as a key part of exceptional defenses that we rode to the playoffs year after year. There are a lot of fond memories I have of Carlos, and I wish him well.”
