Chiefs to sign former 1st-round CB DeAndre Baker to practice squad

Recommended Posts

Giants cut Baker only a year after making him the 30th overall pick in the 2019 draft. Now, a day after the charges leading to his release were dropped, the Chiefs have decided to scoop him up to their practice squad. The Chiefs could definitely use the Corner help.

Seems like the Giants should get first opportunity to resign him or a high draft pick if the charges are dropped. Wouldn't have been cut if the charges weren't filed.

Just wished my team who is hurting for DBs would have thought like this, this is literally free money

He obviously wanted to go to KC

Sure, but he cant control who signs him off of PS. He just got a new lease on life, im sure he's happy to resume the game loves wherever it is

Yes he can? He has to sign the contract a team would offer him? You can't just steal a player off of someone's practice squad without the player agreeing to it

Plus I am pretty sure he still gets all of his rookie contract paid to him since they are guaranteed, so he got paid 4 years for 1 year of work. 

Edit: Looks like he earned $6.1MM according to OTC

Yes he can... the player in question still needs to agree to sign.

Players can't control a team putting in a waiver claim for them when cut, but they can absolutely choose to not sign a contract while a member of a practice squad lol.

The Chiefs can just protect him. Also I’d assume this has to do with COVID protocol.

Can't say I know much about the guy but normally we don't have anything close to a first round pick at CB. Ward - UDFA by Dallas, Breeland - 4th Round by Wash, Fenton - 6th Round, Sneed (on ir) - 4th round and Hamilton - UDFA by Oak.
