Giants’ Baker charged in robbery; Dunbar won’t be prosecuted

Baker and Dunbar were accused of robbery in May in their home state of Florida.

Seattle cornerback Quinton Dunbar was not charged due to what prosecutors described as "insufficient evidence". He initially faced the same charges as Baker.

"Disgusting and no I won't hold back on behalf of this young man", Cohen wrote.

He originally had been charged with four counts of armed robbery in connection with the May incident in Florida.

The 22-year-old cornerback is accused of stealing cash and watches from four men at a house party in Miramar on May 13, according to Satz.

Baker surrendered to jail on May 16 and was released on bond while the investigation continued.

Just over a week ago, the NFL placed both Baker and Dunbar on the Commissioner's Exempt List, according to multiple reports, which is the equivalent of a paid leave as the league continues to review the case.

Police reportedly obtained video footage and direct messages, however, that suggested a friend of Baker and Dunbar oversaw the payoff of the four alleged robbery victims.

Dunbar played his previous five seasons with the Washington Football Team, registering 37 tackles and eight passes defended in 11 starts last season before he was traded to the Seahawks.

One of the New York Giants' three first-round picks in 2019 is in deep trouble.
