In a story that keeps getting weirder, Giants cornerback, DeAndre Baker, has now turned himself into the Miramar police following a reported armed robbery.
New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker, was reportedly involved in an armed robbery earlier this week alongside Seahawks corner, Quinton Dunbar. However, following numerous reports linking both Baker and Dunbar to the robbery, both Baker’s lawyer and Dunbar’s lawyer claimed that neither of the two was there.
The Giants selected DeAndre Baker with the 30th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft out of the University of Georgia. Although Baker was widely regarded as the most talented cornerback in the class, he fell to 30th due to what many had described as character issues.
A little over a year later, Baker was issued an arrest warrant on four counts of armed robbery and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.
Should Dave Gettleman and the New York Giants have passed on Baker because of his reported character issues? Maybe, but they should not be placed at fault with this because how could they have seen this coming?
The timing of this entire incident is very bizarre, first they were reportedly involved in the armed robbery at a cookout, but details didn’t come until the next day, then the following day their lawyers claim they were not involved, and then the day after that both Baker and Dunbar turns themselves in.

Whatever the case might be, where we stand right now is that DeAndre Baker and Quinton Dunbar have both turned themselves into the police on arrest warrants that could place them in prison for a lengthy amount of time.
What this means for their NFL careers remains to be seen, but one would assume they will be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list soon. This means they are essentially suspended until further notice.
As mentioned before, this could end both Baker’s career and Dunbar’s career entirely, as they might be spending a lengthy amount of time in prison, and once they get out, no team will want to touch them with a 10-foot pole.
The Giants had this to say about the incident:
All this being said, I would expect the Giants to release DeAndre Baker sooner rather than later and end this madness before it potentially gets worse.
We will continue to give updates as this story continues to unravel and more details become available.
