Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar is out of jail on 100-thousand dollars bond today after turning himself into authorities Saturday. A warrant for Dunbar’s arrest was issued Thursday in Miramar, Florida along with New York Giant’s cornerback DeAndre Baker for the duo’s alleged roll in an armed robbery at a party Wednesday night.

Dunbar and Baker are accused of robbing thousands of dollars in cash and pricey designer watches at gunpoint after an argument broke out at a party Wednesday night.
