MIRAMAR, Fla. — New developments were released Friday by the Seahawks’ newly acquired cornerback, Quinton Dunbar’s attorney. Dunbar was charged late Thursday with four counts of armed robbery, along with New York Giants’ DB Deandre Baker.

He was still at large on Friday afternoon, when a Miami sports reporter tweeted that Dunbar’s lawyer had letters from witnesses that might clear him from the charges.

Dunbar was wanted after being accused of helping Baker steal luxury watches and money from people at a house party Wednesday night.

The Miami Herald confirmed that immediately, publishing this article that says five witnesses have signed sworn affidavits saying Dunbar was not involved. Andy Slater said in an interview with 710 ESPN Seattle that these accounts did not say Dunbar was not present, just that he was not involved in the crimes.

Dunbar will still have to face an NFL investigation even if these witnesses can exonerate him, to see if he has violated the NFL’s personal conduct policies.

He was expected to take over as the starting right cornerback for Seattle this year, but depending on what transpires, they may go back to Tre Flowers who enters his second season. Logan Ryan from the Tennessee Titans is also a possibility as he’s a free agent cornerback.
