The New York Times is reporting that Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar, along with New York Giants cornerback Deandre Baker, are wanted for armed robbery in Miami.
According to the report, Dunbar and Baker allegedly robbed other guests at a party at gunpoint and left with thousands of dollars in cash and wristwatches worth tens of thousands of dollars. Arrest warrants have been issued for both men. According to the article, none of the three have been taken into custody.
The police report says a dispute arose during the party at a house in Miramar, Florida where people were gambling and playing cards and video games. Baker reportedly flipped over a table, took out a gun and pointed it at another guest and then told Dunbar and another man, who wore a red mask, to start taking money and valuables from other people at the party.
Another bizarre twist to this story is that, as you see here, just a few hours Dunbar allegedly helped rob the party, he appeared in a video press conference arranged by the Seahawks with reporters.
Dunbar, who is from Miami, played five seasons with the Washington Redskins before being traded to Seattle this off-season. He’s expected to make 3.4-million with the Seahawks this season.
Seahawks re-sign QB Geno Smith
Meanwhile, the Seahawks have secured a familiar face to their quarterback’s room…
Geno Smith, who was Russell Wilson’s backup in 2019, will be back with the team. According to ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler, Smith and the Seahawks will reunite for a one-year deal for the 2020 season.
Smith, who’s 29, began his career in New York with the Jets after being a second-round pick in 2013. He started 30-games.
Smith’s return leaves Seattle with three quarterbacks on their roster. Along with Wilson and Smith, the Seahawks have undrafted rookie Anthony Gordon, who had an incredible, record-setting senior season with the Cougars last year.

WIAA provides three new options for state basketball tournaments
The WIAA is looking at more tweaks to the state basketball tournament format…
In an effort to find ways to make the tournaments more efficient, fan-friendly and cost effective, the WIAA’s State Basketball Format Committee has developed three new approaches.
Option one is a Super Regional Tournament format. Rounds 1 and 2 will be single elimination played at local high school or college sites. The final 4 teams from each classification will move on to the final site after the 2nd round. 2A, 3A and 4A will play semifinals and finals at the Tacoma Dome. 1B, 2B and 1A will play semifinals and finals in either Yakima or Spokane.
Option two is a Super Regional with the second round for all classifications being played in the SunDome over 3-days. The final 4 teams will then move to the Tacoma Dome for the 2A, 3A and 4A teams and either Yakima or Spokane for the 1B, 2B and 1A teams.
Option three would have the first two rounds for all classifications in the SunDome and then the final four in Tacoma or Spokane.
The WIAA is hoping for input from fans and schools by answering survey questions through the WIAA app.
