The attorney for Giants cornerback Deandre Baker says Baker surrendered to police on Saturday morning in connection with felony charges arising from alleged involvement in an armed robbery.

“Reports are correct that Deandre turned himself in this morning,” attorney Bradford Cohen wrote on Instagram. “I am a believer in the system and that if everything works the matter will be appropriately resolved. Both my client and I have felt @miramarpd and the Detective working the case, were accommodating and went out of their way to assure Mr Bakers privacy during this hard time.”

Cohen wrote that the full story of what happened is not reflected in the police report.

“Police reports are just that, reports of what was told to them or said to them. Court is what we use to then examine those reports, investigate those claims and allow the Defendant an opportunity to confront the evidence. Don’t rush to judgement,” Cohen wrote.

Baker is accused of drawing a semi-automatic firearm and, in coordination with Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar, robbing multiple victims of 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.

  1. I never assume guilt in these matters, especially when a lot of facts are disputed. But at the same time, why even associate with people like this when you have so much to lose? I’ll never understand.

  2. How often do we hear about a player going back to where they grew up during the off season and because they still want to be cool, run with the old crowd who never got out of the old neighborhood and then bam, something bad happens.
    I’m all for maintaining friendships, but sometimes you just gotta move on.

  3. Let’s see …. these two guys might, stress might, have pissed away multi millions in earnings in the NFL to rob, at gunpoint, several victims in front of multiple witnesses. The alleged stupidity of it makes me think it couldn’t have happened, but as someone once said, “Genius has its limits, but stupidity knows no bounds.” Just for context, then, do we know the Wonderlic scores for the soon to be accused?

    I don’t know about you but my old crowd at parties didn’t have multiple thousand dollar watches and $11K in loose cash.. Not that it matters..

  5. His attorney is a believer in the system. If he believes the system is corrupt garbage then I’d have to agree.

    11 grand in cash and a bunch of 20k watches. Rich people robbing rich people.

    **********

    Doubtful. The NFL guys yes, but their loser friends? Unlikely. Bet the cops will find those watches were previously stolen.

  7. Let me get this straight…

    If miramarpd and the Detective working the case, were accommodating and went out of their way to assure Mr Bakers privacy, doesn’t that imply that Mr Baker decided not to show up before arrest warrants were made public. Would it then not be fair to say that, so far, Mr Baker has not been cooperating with the PD (despite his innocence, of course)?

  8. It’s always smart to make your getaway car a Lambo when you want to remain inconspicuous after a crime. Dillinger did it all the time I’m told.

  9. Dunbar’s attorney Jackie Chiles said, “If the watch don’t fit, you must acquit!”

  10. Baker had displayed several signs of acute idiocy during his 1+ years with the Giants, but this is beyond that. I just can’t imagine the thought process of someone in line to make tens of millions for playing a game. Because make no mistake, this was a PLAN, not an immediate reaction. Wow. Just wow.

  11. If I were a betting man, Id bet that Baker likely never plays for the Giants again.

    The reason Im not totally disgusted as a Giants fan is that it was pretty apparent last year that he was never going to be worthy of where he was drafted. Below average athlete, lazy attitude, and….according to people with the Giants….”dumb as a rock”. Talk about 3 strikes.

    Getty has actually had some decent picks as the Giants GM…I have no idea on how he missed so badly on Baker.

  12. If I were a victim of this hold-up, they would have got $7 in cash and a $20 Casio watch.

  13. I’m pretty sure anyone wearing a $!0K watch is guilty of a lot more than this

  14. If I were a victim of this hold-up, they would have gotten a sun dial and some deposit bottles to take back.

  15. How often do we hear about a player going back to where they grew up during the off season and because they still want to be cool, run with the old crowd who never got out of the old neighborhood and then bam, something bad happens.

    I don’t know about you but my old crowd at parties didn’t have multiple thousand dollar watches and $11K in loose cash.. Not that it matters..

    It’s all relevant. My old crowd, if they got away with a thousand bucks and a couple of engagement rings it would be a pretty big deal.

  16. I am a believer in the system and that if everything works the matter will be appropriately resolved

    it works as long as you are rich and famous

  17. Wasting money on high dollar poker and expensive cars. Baker will be one of those players who will be broke 5 years after his career is over – even if he is not in jail.

  18. Something about this doesn’t smell right I’m going to wait and see what happens.

    If I am an NFL football player with $1000000 in the bank and my Lamborghini out front, I’m not about to hold up a couple people for petty cash and a couple of watches and ruin my entire life.

    This makes no sense…this is what desperate people do, not millionaire football players.

    I will wait for more info thanks. I don’t believe it happened like we’ve heard.

    Motive?

  19. They must have thought the victims would never go to the police, which is interesting in it’s own way.….

  20. This might turn out to be the best outcome possible for DeAndre and Quinton. If they even semi robbed a bunch of hoodies who’s to say they wouldn’t have turned up dead during the football season or next week. They can settle with everyone/pay them off and everyone learns a lesson.

  21. I can’t see how they get out of this unless they pay all the witnesses to decline to press charges. Baker and Dunbar could pay for their cooperation….then rob them again at a later date to get that money back.

  22. See? He knew if he just kept doing things one of them would turn out to be smart sooner or later.

  23. Dunbar just turned himself in but this sounds like bad losers at a card game. They got their clock cleaned to the tune of 70 k and go back a few days later and rob the people who took their money

  24. I wear a $100 watch when I even wear a watch. Doing so reduces my chances of being robbed by NFL cornerbacks.

  25. Lawyer “please respect his privacy in this hard time” yeah ok like he respected anyone’s privacy when he robbed them LoL

  26. It would surprise me if the owner of this high price gambling games doesn’t have security cameras to protect his interest.

  27. So let me get this straight, the NFL players are doing the robbing, and their victims have $20000. Watches. Shouldn’t it be the other way around?
