According to the latest reports, Deandre Baker's attorney Bradford Cohen sent a written plea to Broward County Circuit Court on Monday where he claimed his client pleads not guilty to the eight charges related to the NFL armed robbery case. Quinton Dunbar's attorney Michael Grieco confirmed to ESPN that his client also plans to plead not guilty to his four charges later this week.

One of Deandre Baker's attorneys Patrick Patel told the New York Post that the cornerback was playing 'Madden' video game when the alleged fight broke out in another room during the party. According to Patel, his client had nothing to do with the fight as he was already in another room. In relation to accusations that Baker pointed a gun at some of the witnesses and instructed his accomplices to rob the people, Patel says Baker arrived at the party carrying his video game console, two controllers and a charger. He played the game for over an hour before accidentally leaving the party without his console at the party. Baker's attorneys are reportedly trying to get their hands on electronic proof that confirms his client was playing a video game at the party.
