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 and was eventually promoted for Week 15 before reverting to the taxi squad.
In 2019, Baker appeared in all 16 games for the Giants and recorded 61 tackles, no interceptions and eight passes defended.
