Lions Tried Out DT Chris Baker, DT Jay Bromley & DE Kendall Reyes

According to Adam Caplan, the Lions worked out five players on Wednesday, including P Ryan Quigley, DT Chris Baker, DT Jay Bromley, and DE Kendall Reyes. The fifth player was not disclosed.

Baker, 30, originally signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Hampton back in 2009. He lasted just over a year in Denver before he was waived and later signed to the Dolphins practice squad.

After Miami cut him loose at the start of the 2011 season, Baker signed on to the Redskins’ taxi squad and spent the next five years in Washington.

The Buccaneers elected to sign Baker to a three-year, $15.75 million contract that included $9 million guaranteed last offseason and he was set to make base salaries of $4.87 million over the final two years of the agreement when the Bucs released him this offseason.

Baker later signed a one-year contract with the Bengals during the offseason but was released coming out of the preseason.

In 2017, Baker appeared in 15 games for the Buccaneers and recorded 33 tackles, a half sack and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 96 interior defensive lineman out of 122 qualifying players.

Bromley, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Giants back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $3,003,876 rookie contract and was not testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his NFL career before agreeing to a contract with the Saints back in May.

Unfortunately, the Saints elected to release Bromley this past weekend as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

In 2017, Bromley appeared in all 16 games for the Giants and recorded 21 tackles, one sack and a pass defense.
