Chris Baker visited the Bengals on Tuesday and took a physical. He is expected to sign with the Bengals at the start of the NFL calendar year (march 14th). With Pat Sims going to Free Agency and knowing Teryl Austin wants his line big, he will be a decent fit.
Last year the Bengals also signed Chris Smith formally from Jacksonville and stuck gold. It is looking more like they will re-sign him soon. Expect a multi-year deal for Chris Smith.
It is looking more and more like they are making sure the defense is secure before the draft so they can concentrate on the offensive struggles. Adding the 30-year-old Chris Baker will provide balance throughout the line.
Note: Remember the Bengals don’t shy away from controversy. In 2014 playing for the Redskins, he was a key player in the two team brawl on a game with the Eagles. He was fined $10,000. He has good talent for a big guy. He never got a real good fair chance where he has been.
