Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar Pleads Not Guilty To Four Armed Robbery Charges


Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar also pleaded not guilty to four armed robbery charges on Tuesday, according to his lawyer Michael Grieco, via the Seattle Times

Grieco has been confident that his client will be exonerated fully in the matter. 

Dunbar turned himself in to police over the weekend and was later released on $100,000 bond.

The alleged robbery incident stemmed from an illegal dice gambling game with 15-20 occupants in attendance. 

Dunbar and Giants CB Deandre Baker are accused of armed robbery and arrest warrants were issued for them on Thursday. 

The two players were partying in Miramar, FL. on May 13th and were allegedly hanging at a cookout when an argument broke out Baker pulled out a semi-automatic firearm.

Police say Dunbar assisted in taking watches and other valuables at the direction of Baker. In total, Baker allegedly stole $12,400 in cash from four people and four watches ranging in price from $600 to $25,000 worth $61,100 in total.

A witness mentioned that Baker and Dunbar were at another party a few days earlier where they “lost about $70,000” gambling. 

Baker was allegedly wearing a red mask and directed another man to shoot someone who had just walked into the party.

Dunbar, 27, originally signed on with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of Florida back in 2015. He was waived at the start of the 2015 season and was later added to the Redskins’ practice squad before being promoted a few weeks later.

Washingon re-signed Dunbar to a three-year, $10.5 million extension through the 2020 season in January of last year. The Redskins later traded him to the Seahawks for a fifth-round pick this past March. 

Dunbar is set to make a base salary of $3.25 million for the 2020 season. 

In 2019, Dunbar appeared in 11 games and recorded 37 total tackles, one tackle for loss, four interceptions and eight pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 2 overall cornerback out of 113 qualifying players.
