According to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post, free agent CB DeAndre Baker is scheduled to fly to Kansas City tomorrow morning to meet with the Chiefs.
Earlier in the day, Schwartz reported that five teams so far are potentially in play to sign Baker including the 49ers, Bengals, Chiefs and Jaguars and possibly the Cowboys.
However, 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan later denied having an interset in Baker.
Prosecutors dropped all four charges of armed robbery that Baker was facing after the lawyer for three of the alleged victims was arrested on extortion charges.
Baker could still potentially face NFL discipline for the incident but it appears teams are willing to take a chance on the former first-round pick.
The Giants waived Baker earlier in the season after he was placed on the commissioner’s exempt list and no end to the case appeared to be in sight.
Baker, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Giants back in 2019. He was in the second year of his four-year, $10,525,716 contract that included a $5,675,064 signing bonus when the Giants waived him this summer.
In 2019, Baker appeared in all 16 games for the Giants and recorded 61 tackles, no interceptions and eight passes defended.
