The Falcons would have been left with a big need had they lost Baker. That’s not to say he’s a top-ten tackle, but he’s serviceable enough that it makes sense for them re-sign him.
Atlanta made it clear that retaining their own free agents was their top priority and so far they’ve managed to keep Baker, S William Moore and are reportedly working on a new contract with TE Tony Gonzalez.
We have him listed as the No. 73 best available player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
