NFL cornerbacks DeAndre Baker and Quinton Dunbar have been released from Broward County, Florida, jail on bond following their alleged involvement in an armed robbery last week. 

Broward County Judge Michael Davis set Baker's bail at $200,000 Sunday morning — $25,000 for each of the eight counts he faces. Dunbar was let go on $100,000 bond — $25,000 for each of the four counts he faces. Each were charged with four counts of armed robbery with a firearm, while Baker was also charged with an additional four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.

Baker and Dunbar had previously turned themselves in Saturday, two days after the Miramar (Florida) police department issued warrants for their arrests. Baker, who plays for the New York Giants, and Dunbar, who is with the Seattle Seahawks, are accused of being involved in an armed robbery at a Wednesday night party.

According to a 14-page affidavit compiled by the Miramar Police Department for the police report and arrest warrant, the two NFL players allegedly robbed guests at a party in which several people were playing cards and video games. After an argument erupted and the card table was flipped, Baker allegedly brandished a weapon and told Dunbar and two other individuals to start robbing the people at the party, per the police report. Thousands of dollars in cash, several watches and other valuables were taken, with Baker telling people he'd shoot them if they left the house, according to the report. 

Baker will have 48 hours to hand over a firearm registered in his name to authorities. Neither player is permitted to leave Florida, although the judge said during Baker's hearing that condition could be modified if his work requires him to leave the state. 

The Miramar Police Department issued the following statement on Friday night: "We have taped, sworn statements from four victims and one witness. If they are changing their statements, we welcome them to come into our police department and give us a new statement." 

Attorneys for both Dunbar and Baker have publicly said witnesses have corroborated both players' innocence in regards to the allegations.
