As expected, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar and New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker both pleaded not guilty to multiple counts of armed robbery. In Baker’s case, he pleaded not guilty to an additional four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.

According to the arrest warrant, Dunbar and Baker were accused of robbing multiple people of their watches and money at a house party in Miramar, Florida. While both men were accused of having firearms, there were conflicting witness statements as to whether or not Dunbar was armed. All four alleged victims later recanted their original statements less than two days later, per Dunbar’s lawyer Michael Grieco.

TMZ Sports is reporting that thus far, no video of the alleged incident has emerged, whether through home surveillance or cameras in the immediate surrounding area.

Both men turned themselves in over the weekend but are currently out on bond. No court date has been set for either man.

Dunbar was traded by Washington to the Seahawks for a 2020 fifth-round pick. He was set to compete with Tre Flowers for a starting position at RCB, but that is all very much up in the air pending the outcome of his legal situation. The Seahawks put out a statement prior to Dunbar turning himself in, saying in part, “We will defer all further comment to league investigators and local authorities.”

After posting bail, Dunbar released this statement on his (currently private) Instagram page.

“I would like to thank all my fans for the support and apologize to the Seattle Seahawks organization for any unnecessary distractions that these allegations against me may have caused,” Dunbar wrote. “In addition, I am very grateful to be apart of a team that supports one another and uphold the credibility of each of its members through adverse situations. Moving forward, this entire situation has taught me how to not associate myself with environments that may mischaracterize my values and who I am.”
