The Seahawks may have just gotten back their starting corner. ESPN's Cameron Wolfe, among others, has reported that Quinton Dunbar will not be prosecuted for armed robbery due to a lack of evidence. Meanwhile, Giants defensive back DeAndre Baker has been formally charged and faces upwards of 10 years in prison if convicted. This all stems from the incident at a house party the two players attended back in May.

Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar is not being charged due to "insufficient evidence."
Dunbar is not currently with the Seahawks as he's been placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List, although he may be removed from that list in the very near future in light of Friday's news.
All of a sudden the Seahawks dream secondary will potentially become a reality with Dunbar and Shaquill Griffin at cornerback and Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs at safety. Then Seattle would have Ugo Amadi, Marquise Blair and Tre Flowers as depth pieces to deploy in sub packages.
The one wrinkle that is yet to be ironed out is whether or not anything will come from the alleged payoff that took place at Michael Grieco's office, the former attorney for Dunbar. Prosecution said it had evidence that the five individuals who provided sworn statements to the police were paid off to change their story and sign sworn affidavits that cleared Dunbar of any wrongdoing.
There's also a possibility that the NFL still decides to suspend Dunbar, but that feels unlikley without official charges being filed.
"We have been monitoring all developments in the matter which remains under review," the NFL said in a statement to NBC Sports Northwest.
This story isn't over just yet, but we may have a resolution in the coming days, one that could be very good news for Dunbar and the Seahawks.
