Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar was released Sunday on a bond of $100,000 from Florida’s Broward County Jail, according to the attorney defending him against felony charges of armed robbery.
The bond was $25,000 for each of the four charges that he participated in a robbery at Miramar, FL., party Wednesday night attended by 15 to 20 people at an illegal dice game, according to the police report.
A judge who the granted the bond imposed terms of the release: No travel outside of Florida, no communication with the alleged victims in what Miramar police say were robberies of jewelry and cash, and no access to firearms.

Attorney Michael Grieco said Friday that five witnesses, including four robbery victims — the same ones Miramar police interviewed in obtaining the arrest warrants — swore that Dunbar was not involved. Grieco said he presented the affidavits to the Broward office of the state attorney general, but prosecutors have yet to make them public.
“All of the affidavits indicate my client is innocent,” Greico told the Miami Herald. “There is no physical evidence. There is no corroborating evidence, beyond the initial five statements of these individuals, whatsoever.”
Along with the rest of the NFL, the Seahawks remain in lockdown to slow the spread of the coronavirus. All off-season team activities are being conducted virtually, via video conference, so Dunbar has no immediate need to travel to Seattle.
He was acquired by the Seahawks March 23 from Washington after the NFL travel ban was put in place. He’s a native of Miami, as is DeAndre Baker, the New York Giants cornerback who was also arrested. His bond was set at $200,000 because of four additional charges of aggravated assault with a firearm. Both surrendered to police Saturday and have separate attorneys.
There was a conflict between witness accounts whether Dunbar was in possession of a gun, so he was not charged by police.
