Patriots Sign Chris Baker

The New England Patriots have reached a deal with free agent tight end and past Pro Football Central Radio guest Chris Baker (Jets) according to NFL.com’s Adam Schefter. Earlier this month, the Jets released Baker rather than pay him the $9 million option bonus payment that was due to him in early March. At the time, the 29-year-old Baker said he was open to re-signing with the Jets and would like to return. But when New England called, and Baker heard the Patriots’ offer, he liked that idea better.
