The Giants are running out of patience with DeAndre Baker
Following the news he could be implicated in a cover-up associated with armed robbery allegations from May, DeAndre Baker might soon be jobless aswell. Baker and Quinton Dunbar allegedly facilitated upwards of $55,000 in payments to four victims, who then retracted their statements to police. While nothing has been proven up to now, the evidence from the two players is damning, enough so your Giants could distance themselves from their former first-round pick quickly.
Baker hasn’t contributed much more when compared to a headache for the Mara family in the NFL, and despite his once-glowing potential, to put on with these types of illegal activities was not in the cards when they selected him No. 30 over all in 2019.
DeAndre Baker might’ve ruined his last chance in New York.
Baker’s employment in the NFL may be the least of his concerns moving forward, as he may well face prison time. In terms of his football future, the NFL will administer suspensions for cases such as these, especially if his conduct is viewed as detrimental to the team and league as a whole. Baker, who has proven himself incapable of staying out of the public eye for the wrong reasons, might fit that description.
The Giants’ decision to cut Baker could come down to whether or not they will get out of his contract, and the $9 million that’s fully guaranteed to him this coming season. Depending on the language, when they can determine Baker violated his deal to the point of financial implications, then the Giants can void the rest of the money they owe the Georgia product.
In his only season in the NFL with the Giants, Baker didn’t record just one interception, and had 61 combined tackles. He was expected to be described as a member of the Giants starting secondary next season.
