Well, here’s a juicy story to start your Friday: Two NFL cornerbacks were issued arrest warrants and charged with armed robbery yesterday. Giants CB DeAndre Baker and Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar find themselves in some trouble after an incident that occurred this Wednesday in Florida.
Here’s what we know so far:
  • Baker has been charged with four counts of armed robbery with a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault. Dunbar has been charged with four counts of armed robbery
  • According to the police report, Baker, Dunbar and a third unidentified man took money and watches from victims at gunpoint after an argument escalated at a party they were attending
  • Baker used force and allegedly directed the unidentified third man to shoot someone who entered the party, but no shots were fired
  • The argument reported started as the result of a gambling dispute. One witness told police Baker and Dunbar lost over $70,000 while gambling days earlier
  • Among the items Baker and Dunbar reportedly made off with: An $18,000 Rolex watch, a Hublot worth $25,000 and over $7,000 in cash
While neither player had turned themselves in as of Thursday night, police were in contact with at least one of their representatives about doing so. Both players’ respective teams said they’re aware of the situation but declined commenting further.
Baker was a first-round pick of the Giants last year and started 15 games during his rookie season. Dunbar spent five seasons with the Redskins before being traded to the Seahawks in March.
Obviously, it’s a pretty ugly situation that’s going to need to play out through legal channels, but you can bet the Giants and Seahawks are certainly not pleased right about now. Baker’s a promising young talent that figures to be a big part of the Giants’ defense for years to come if he can stay out of trouble, while the Seahawks just made an investment to acquire Dunbar mere months ago.
