Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker has been accused of armed robbery in Florida, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker has been accused of an armed robbery in Florida, along with Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar. The two were partying in Miramar, Florida prior to the incident.
The two were allegedly at a cookout just hanging out when an argument broke out, leading to DeAndre Baker pulling out a semi-automatic firearm. It was then reported that Baker and Dunbar began robbing those at the cookout before Baker allegedly told another man to shoot one of the guests.
The good news is nobody was shot but at the end of the day that doesn’t matter a whole lot because the situation is bad enough already.
Baker and Dunbar are facing four counts of armed robbery with a firearm and an additional four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. To put this into perspective, robbery with a deadly weapon is punishable by up to life in prison in the state of Florida, and aggravated assault with a firearm faces a minimum of three years in prison.

That being said, not only could Baker and Dunbar potentially be facing a suspension from the NFL, but their careers might be over as a whole. If the charges turn out to be true, there is a good chance we see the two cornerbacks go to prison for a long, long time.
In his rookie season last year, Baker started in 15 of 16 games and had 61 total tackles. In addition to that, Baker was set to be a starter once again for the Giants this season with their revamped secondary going into his second season.
Unfortunately for Baker and the Giants, Baker will likely be facing a lengthy suspension, ultimately leading the Giants to drop him. If I were a betting man, I would put my life savings on the fact that DeAndre Baker has played his final game as a New York Giant, despite only playing one season with Big Blue.
We will give updates as they become available in the coming days and weeks.
