Carlos Dunlap has been unhappy for weeks ad it has nothing to do with the team’s overall record. The Bengals defensive end made that clear a few weeks ago when he openly complained about his role on defense and lack of communication from the coaching staff.
“It sounds like it’s not going to be me in there,” Dunlap said at the time. “I think they want a different run stopper. I think I can give that to them.”
“It just seems like this is what the coaches want. I don’t know what the thought is, but evidently, focus on third down. So we’ve got to get them to third down with the young boys and do what I’m asked to do.”
The two-time Pro Bowler took it to another level on Saturday when he posted a picture of a whiteboard that had the Bengals’ defensive end depth chart listed.
“Bengals depth chart update: ‘Stand Down And Stand By’ is what this tells me,” Dunlap wrote on Instagram. “Zac/Lou they got an experiment, but I don’t got time for this.”
According to Albert Breer of SI.com, the Bengals have veteran DE Carlos Dunlap on the trade leading up to this year’s deadline.
In 2020, Dunlap has appeared in six games for the Bengals and recorded 18 tackles, one sack and two pass defenses.
