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.

It took until November for Baker to sign on to the Chiefs’ practice squad. 

In 2019, Baker appeared in all 16 games for the Giants and recorded 61 tackles, no interceptions and eight passes defended.

Wisniewski, 31, is a former second-round pick by the Raiders back in the 2011 NFL Draft out of Penn State. He finished out his rookie contract and signed a one-year deal with the Jaguars in 2015. 

After finishing his deal in Jacksonville, Wisniewski signed a one-year deal with the Eagles and returned to Philadelphia on a three-year, $9 million extension. Philadelphia later declined his team-option for 2019 before re-signing him to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.

From there, the Eagles cut Wisniewski loose and he eventually signed on with the Chiefs for the 2019 season. The Steelers added him on a two-year contract this past March but opted to release him last month. 

Wisniewski opted to return to the Chiefs. He’s bounced on and off their practice squad this season. 

In 2020, Wisniewski has been active for two games.
