DeAndre Baker

Recommended Posts

I normally don’t start topics on particular players, but this one is too weird to ignore. The charges against him were dropped because the plaintiffs’ attorney was just arrested for extortion.

I’d sign Baker immediately. He’d be inexpensive, and was a solid talent at Georgia and a 1st round pick in 2019. It’s one less position to worry about come draft day.

Baker was a bust of a 1st rounder even before these charges though...not really someone I'd take a shot on.

He was a rookie. They always take their lumps.

Why was I thinking he had two seasons in the league...? Weird.

He has to have cleared waivers right? So he would be signing a vet contract? 

Have no clue what kind of money that would be, but it might be worth kicking the tires.

Assuming he'd be facing a 6 game suspension upon return.   I mean heck Zeke wasn't even ever charged.

If we sign him, there'd definitely be a suspension. Any other team would be fine.

my first thought is, what do we have to lose...

then I thought, what if, he plays, makes a few good plays, and Dallas wins 👀

You sign him expecting him to be suspended for the rest of the season. Basically, the signing is to sandbag him for 2021 and beyond.

I don’t think it would be much considering he was on a rookie contract. I’d put in the waiver claim.

Waivers are normally just the first few days after a cut tho, right? So this would be a brand new contract... I think. Maybe?

Don’t want him. He was terrible his first year in the league and if I recall correctly, he struggled mightily in zone. He’s only good as a press corner.
