Giants’ Deandre Baker Apologizes after release from jail

Baker was issued a warrant for his arrest on Thursday, along with fellow Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar, as both players surrendered to local authorities on Saturday.

Baker is facing four counts of armed robbery and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm, while Dunbar only faces armed robbery charges.

“We sincerely thank all law enforcement for their diligent efforts to uncover the truth herein and sincerely apologize for the distractions that this event has caused to Deandre’s team, teammates and the NFL community during this difficult time in everyone’s life,” the statement read.

Both men were accused of robbing a group of victims of cash and luxury watches at a Miramar, Florida on a Wednesday night.

According to the official county report, Baker directed the robbery as Dunbar helped collect more than $11,000 in cash, an $18,000 Rolex watch, a $25,000 Hublot watch, a $17,500 Audemars Piguet watch and other valuables from attendees.

According to a TMZ Sports report, Baker and Dunbar had lost roughly $70,000 while gambling at a Miami party earlier that week.
