Re: Chris Baker Resigned

Morgan's deal has a team void option after the '13 season, so yeah he's not going to see that $$. Nothing to worry about there.

Re: Chris Baker Resigned

I'm glad we got Baker resigned. The money seems a bit high when you look at his production, but as long as he starts in 2014, it should be worth it.

Re: Chris Baker Resigned

I like the RE-SIGNING. A good price for a quality player.

Even if a little over value, I would rather lock up a guy like this and move forward. It may be that after years of playing hard ball with our own guys and letting them walk (R. Clark, A. Pierce come to mind) maybe we B. Allen is trying to "change the culture" a bit. If so, expect a generous P. Riley contract announcement soon.
This post gets the Lotus seal of approval.

Jenkins is the rotation guy? Id have to believe Carriker is a cut. Wonder if we will keep Bowen?
Bowen had microfracture surgery if he's ready in November it'll be within the recovery timeframe. He definitely won't be ready for training camp.
Bowen, due to his hefty contract may be cut or asked to take a pay cut. Look for Jenkins to be in the mix for left end starter.

Baker may take the nose and Cofield may go to right end?

Coefield at nose, baker mos def is end. Only way u move coefield to end is if with we get a monster hog in the middle which would be fine with me

I know in the alignment those ends need to play contain, but too often we weren't let'm go aggressive upfield. Sometime u gotta let them eat, hope haslet lets them loose a lil more

Re: Chris Baker Resigned

I like the signing, I think he should be in the top 3 DE rotation next year. 1 of Bowen or Carriker needs to be cut now though so we give Baker a chance and save a little money. Don't wanna really say it cause I respect both those guys.

Jenkins, Baker, Carriker (if he can play)/Bowen. I think that is pretty solid. Golston will be the 4th guy.

Re: Chris Baker Resigned

Cofields gonna get the starting nod though isnt he? Barrys not a DE.. not enough speed for the edge but all the power up front perfect gap guy. This is a depth resigning. Why let him go type of thing nothing to break headlines with.

Re: Chris Baker Resigned

$12M tells me it's more than a depth move. He's being viewed as a starter.

According to Keim, the contract is actually 3 years at 9 mil. But each year has 1 mil in incentives that he can also earn if he hits those incentives. Keim is listing his cap hit as 2 mil first year, 3 mil second year, and 4 mil third year with the chance of an extra 1 mil per year in bonuses.

"DL Chris Baker
Signed a three-year, $12-million deal with $4 million guaranteed. That sounds like starter-type money (albeit not a high level one), but itís certainly not guaranteed starter money. He has $1 million in incentives that are not likely to be earned -- based on play time, sack totals and Pro Bowl appearances -- each of the three years and his cap number is only $2 million this year and tops out at $4 million in the final year of the contract. The deal averages $3 million per season. It allows the Redskins to keep a young, improving lineman who can help them at multiple spots: end, nose tackle and nickel rusher. Even if he doesnít start he will play a lot."

Re: Chris Baker Resigned

There are incentives that he probably won't reach so the deal is basically 3yrs 9million as per Keim.

Can't post link typing of my phone it's smart not me LOL.

Yeah I saw that... my basic point is based on how he finished last year he's going to get a shot to start and he's more than just a depth guy like someone like Golston has been. It's a good deal for both sides.

Re: Chris Baker Resigned

Baker just seems to keep getting better since he's been here. I say he breaks out this year and makes the Pro Bowl.
