Chiefs Re-Sign Deandre Baker

The Chiefs have re-signed Deandre Baker for the 2021 season, per a club announcement. The cornerback joined the Chiefs on a practice squad deal in November, shortly after the Broward County State Attorney’s Office dropped armed robbery charges against him

Baker struggled as a first-round rookie with the Giants, allowing a 116.2 passer rating. Then, heading into his second year, Baker was arrested on multiple felony charges. Cops alleged that Baker orchestrated a robbery at gunpoint with Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar as his accomplice. Then, after a number of twists and turns — including payoff allegations against one-time Dunbar attorney Michael Grieco — the charges were dropped.

After a month on the taxi squad, Baker got called up to the varsity squad for a couple of games. Now, he’ll work to make the 53-man cut in KC.

In addition to Baker, the Chiefs announced the following futures deals:

    Lol, of course Baker is a Chief. Tyreek Hill, Kareem Hunt, Jovan Belcher, and the woman beater Bienemy. Surprised they haven’t signed Ray Lewis as a life coach. Oh wait, they’re is an open linebacker coach spot coming soon…

    • Yep it is

      Hill was cleared. Kareem Hunt was cut. Saying anything about Belcher shows you have zero intelligence.

          Hill was cleared of the child abuse charge. He was not cleared for the domestic violence charge.

          The girlfriend (with whom the incident in college occurred) was also suspected in the child abuse case, and she recorded the audio. Ultimately both were cleared.

    I hope they got him on the cheap as he is come off a spiral fracture of his femur bone. Worst bone to break. Most people have trouble walking normal much less covering NFL a wide receivers after breaking that bone.
