According to a TMZ Sports report published Thursday, warrants for NFL players DeAndre Baker, 22, and Quinton Dunbar, 27, have been issued after the duo reportedly robbed fellow partygoers in Miramar, Florida, at gunpoint on Wednesday.

“Law enforcement confirms NY Giants cornerback Deandre Baker (the 30th overall pick in 2019) is facing 4 charges of armed robbery and 4 charges of aggravated assault with a firearm,” TMZ reported Thursday evening. “Seattle Seahawks corner Quinton Dunbar is facing 4 counts of armed robbery.”

“We are aware of the situation,” the New York Giants said in a statement, reported NFL Network’s Kimberly Jones. “We have been in contact with DeAndre. We have no further comment at this time.”

The two men were reportedly at a cookout, playing cards and video games, when an argument broke out. This allegedly triggered Baker to whip out a semi-automatic firearm, and things escalated from there.

According to Spotrac, “Quinton Dunbar signed a 3 year, $5,700,000 contract with the Washington Redskins, including a $1,000,000 signing bonus, $1,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $1,900,000. In 2020, Dunbar will earn a base salary of $3,250,000 and a roster bonus of $171,875, while carrying a cap hit of $3,421,875.”
