Allegedly, the duo pulled off a jux at a cookout. Yes, you read that correctly.
Law enforcement confirms NY Giants cornerback Deandre Baker (the 30th overall pick in 2019) is facing 4 charges of armed robbery and 4 charges of aggravated assault with a firearm.
Seattle Seahawks corner Quinton Dunbar is facing 4 counts of armed robbery.
According to police, the two men were partying in Miramar, FL on May 13 … when things took a disturbing turn.
Cops say Baker and Dunbar were allegedly hanging at a cookout — playing cards and video games — when an argument broke out and Baker whipped out a semi-automatic firearm.
Cops say the men began to rob party guests … with Dunbar assisting in taking watches and other valuables at the direction of Baker.
At one point, cops say Baker directed a 3rd man — who was wearing a red mask — to shoot someone who had just walked into the party … but fortunately, no one was actually shot.
Reportedly, Baker and Dunbar made off with over $7,000 in cash as well as pricey watches that included a $18,000 Rolex and a $25,000 Hublot.
However, this epic story of struggle has a twist. Baker and Dunbar may have gotten got themselves just days prior.
One witness told cops they had met Baker and Dunbar at a party a few days earlier in Miami — at which the NFL players had “lost” around $70,000.
Our sources tell us the men had “lost” the money in high-stakes card games and other forms of gambling.
One witness told cops the men were gambling again at the May 13 event … when an argument broke out and Baker allegedly flipped a table and busted out his piece.
According to cops, some people at the party believe it was a planned robbery because when the 3 men were done taking valuables, there were 3 getaway cars strategically positioned to “expedite an immediate departure.”
It goes without saying, we gotta hear both sides.
