Bengals’ Carlos Dunlap angles for trade by tweeting about selling his house

Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap has spent his whole career in Cincinnati, but if his recent social-media house listing is any indication, he’s hoping the upcoming NFL trade deadline prompts a move out of town.

After the Bengals lost to the Browns 37-34 on Sunday, Dunlap posted on both Twitter and Instagram that he was looking to sell his house. That came after Dunlap played 11 snaps, tied for lowest on Cincinnati’s defensive line, during the loss. Week 7 was the fourth straight week that Dunlap’s snap count declined as the Bengals appear to move on from the 31-year old pass rusher.

The since-deleted tweet from Dunlap appeared like this:

Dunlap already showed social-media displeasure Saturday when he posted a picture of the Bengals’ Week 7 depth chart that had him listed as a third-stringer. Dunlap ended his caption on that photo with the words, “I don’t got time for this.”

During Sunday’s game, matters were made worse when Dunlap appeared to get in an argument with Bengals defensive line coach Nick Eason. 

The NFL trade deadline is on Election Day, Nov. 3, at 4 p.m. ET. With the Bengals at 1-4-1, it could make sense to move on from Dunlap and seek to continue playing younger players along the defensive front. Contending teams often look to pick up pass-rushing experience at the trade deadline.

Dunlap has only recorded 1.0 sack in 2020, but he’s a two-time Pro Bowler with 82.5 career sacks. He recorded at least 7.5 sacks in every season from 2013 to 2019. Dunlap looks like he’d be happier moving on from Cincinnati, and that could be a win for a lucky house-buyer, too — looks like Dunlap is selling a sweet house.
