Baker, who had previously signed with the Chiefs’ practice team in November 2020, was nearing two full years at Kansas City at the time of his release. The former 2019 New York Giants first-round pick came to town looking for a fresh start after troubles off the field that led to the end of his tenure in New York. He managed the feat of hitting the reset button in Kansas City, though he never quite managed to make his mark on the field. His Chiefs career began with a fractured left femur in the club’s last regular-season game of the 2020-21 season.
