Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker surrenders on armed-robbery charges

Baker was said to have a semi-automatic firearm during the robbery, and there were inconsistent witness reports as to whether or not Dunbar was armed.

Police are still searching for Quinton Dunbar, a 27-year-old Seattle Seahawks cornerback, also charged with armed robbery. So, Baker might be able to attend the Giants' offseason program or training camp if the team facility opens up this summer. In his rookie season, the former Georgia CB and Florida native started 15 of 16 games played, recording 61 combined tackles and eight passes defensed. That seems unlikely now considering his legal problems and hiatus from the team, which is learning new systems under a new coaching staff. He turned himself to Miramar police on Saturday morning more than 30 hours after the initial warrant warrant was issued.

He noted that there is "no physical evidence, no corroborating evidence, " backing up the state's case other than the witness statements, arguing that there was no basis "to hold somebody no bond on a bogus case".

Both the Giants and Seahawks issued statements Thursday, and the National Football League surely will be investigating the matter.

Terms of his release on bail before trial proceedings continue include: no travel outside of Florida; no communication with the alleged victims in what Miramar (Fla.) police say were robberies of jewelry and cash at a house party Wednesday in that city; and no access to firearms.

The terms of his release were revealed Sunday morning.

"If any of them have changed their stories, we would welcome them to come back to the Miramar police station for a new statement", Rues told the Herald. That was following Dunbar's initial appearance before judge Michael Davis in the 17th Circuit Court of Florida, in Fort Lauderdale.

The man in the red mask, per the state prosecutor, hasn't yet been identified. However, no shots were fired.

Grieco cited this as an example of unreliable witnesses, and he said he believes it is "ridiculous" that Dunbar is still expected to turn himself in.

"Both my client and I have felt @miramarpd and the Detective working the case, were accommodating and went out of their way to assure Mr Bakers privacy during this hard time", Cohen's statement further read. Baker took out a gun after the argument at the card table and pointed it at another guest, the warrant said.

It was mentioned throughout the proceedings that Baker and Dunbar have no prior criminal history.
