4. Chris Baker, DT, Redskins
Just over a week ago, we looked into the possibility of Baker reuniting with the Broncos this offseason in free agency, and it makes sense.
With Sylvester Williams likely leaving in free agency, the Broncos will be looking for a new nose tackle, and the veteran Baker could come at a decent price this offseason. He’s been performing very well both as a pass rusher and run defender over the last couple of seasons, flashing the potential many saw from him when he was originally an undrafted free agent pickup in Denver.
With the Broncos’ hole up front at nose tackle, Baker would cement a position that was lacking this past year. Williams’ effort up front didn’t match what we saw in 2015, and it’s possible his contract situation played into that. If the Broncos and Williams part ways, nose tackle becomes a major need, and Baker is one of the more underrated players on the market.
