The Broward State Attorney's Office dropped all charges against former Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker, more than six months after charging him and former Washington Football cornerback Quinton Dunbar with armed robbery. 

The charges against Dunbar were dropped in August due to "insignificant evidence." 

According to reports, William Dean, the lawyer for three of Baker's alleged victims, was charged for trying to extort Baker, who had been accused of stealing money and watches and threatening alleged victims with a semiautomatic rifle. 

Dean reportedly tried to get Baker to pay each of the three alleged victims hundreds of thousands of dollars to stop cooperating with the prosecutor's office. 

The Giants are not expected to re-sign Baker, who is currently a free agent. According to the league office, the 2019 first-round pick is free to sign with a team but could still be subject to discipline based on the results of an NFL investigation.

"Wish him the best luck in the future," Giants coach Joe Judge said Monday. "We've made the decision we think is best for the program. That is all I have to say about that."
