Chiefs plan to sign DeAndre Baker to practice squad


A report earlier Tuesday revealed free agent cornerback DeAndre Baker will visit the Chiefs on Wednesday. Now, Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports the Chiefs are expected to sign Baker to their practice squad in the coming days.

Kansas City is Baker’s only planned visit.

The Giants cut Baker on Sept. 8 after Baker was charged with four counts of armed robbery. But the Broward County (Florida) Attorney’s office announced Monday that it was dropping charges against Baker.

Further, the attorney for Baker’s accusers was arrested after allegedly making an attempt to extort Baker.

Baker, 23, played 16 games for the Giants in 2019 after they made him a first-round choice. He made 61 total tackles, two tackles for loss and eight pass breakups.

The Chiefs have depth at the position, but they never have shied away from giving players a second chance.
