DeAndre Baker Charged With Four Counts of Robbery With Firearm

DeAndre Baker, a cornerback on the New York Giants, has been charged with four counts of a robbery with a firearm in Broward County, Florida. Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News notes that if Baker is convicted he would face 10 years to life in state prison:

Baker and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar were arrested in May after allegedly stealing over $70,000 in cash and jewelry from people at a party in Miramar. Dunbar does not face state charges today. Baker was accused of ordering a man in a mask to shoot one of the party guests (the man in a mask did not comply).

As a Giants rookie last season, Baker appeared in all 16 games and started 15. He had said he was planning to report to training camp in July but was later put on the NFL’s commissioner’s exempt list.

  1. DeAndre Baker signed a 4 year contract with $9,007,390 guaranteed at signing. He and his 2 buddies robbed people of $70,000. My guess is that guaranteed money is no longer guaranteed as he violated a standard “don’t commit felonies” term of these contracts, costing Baker $8,967,390-ish, assuming a three way spilt. Brilliant move, DeAndre. Brilliant move.
