It was earlier this year that cornerbacks DeAndre Baker of the New York Giants and Quinton Dunbar of the Seattle Seahawks were arrested in Florida after allegedly robbing people at gunpoint.

Since then, both players have been placed on the commissioner’s exempt list. We now have some major breaking news on this front.

DeAndre Baker charged with four counts of robbery with a firearm, faces up to life in prison

A related note indicates that Dunbar will not face prosecution due to “insufficient evidence.”

As noted in the report, Baker faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison if convicted on the charges.

Baker, 22, was a first-round pick of the Giants last year. He started 15 games, recording 61 tackles and eight passes defended.

That 10-year mandatory minimum would pretty much end Baker’s career. Though, this is about a lot more than simply football. It’s about his livelihood off the field.

For his part, the Georgia product continues to deny any wrongdoing. We’ll have further updates as this story unfolds.
