Carlos Dunlap - Former Seahawks defensive end
I felt a bit bad for Carlos Dunlap during his time with the Seattle Seahawks. He was often played out of position by former defensive coordinator Ken Norton, Jr. and even asked to play in coverage much more than Dunlap should have been (which is never to be asked). In 2021, after Seattle's season was doomed, Dunlap was used more in his conventional defensive end role than in some hybrid outside linebacker thing that wasn't working and Dunlap took off. In the 2021 offseason, Seattle even released Dunlap but he didn't find a home so the Seahawks brought him back only to ill-use him.

In 2021, after Seattle's season was doomed, Dunlap was used more in his conventional defensive end role than in some hybrid outside linebacker thing that wasn't working and Dunlap took off. Prior to Week 13, Dunlap had just half a sack. His snaps had dropped to him just playing 4 against the Commanders in Week 12. Then Norton must have realized that Dunlap is a decent player and began playing him more and in the right spot.
From Week 13 on, Dunlap had 8 sacks and 10 quarterback hits. Seattle went 4-2 from Week 13 on but was just 3-8 before that. Of course, Seattle didn't start winning games simply because Dunlap was beginning to be used properly, but there is no argument that getting Dunlap more involved helped the defense be better.
Dunlap signed with the Kansas City Chiefs before the 2023 and helped the team win the Super Bowl. He is currently a free agent, but at 34 years old teams might not want to pay him what he might be asking for.
