REPORT: Cowboys Internally Discussing Former 1st-rounder CB DeAndre Baker

Jerry Jones suggests Cowboys could potentially be interested in DeAndre Baker.

When it comes to giving any kind of information away about the Dallas Cowboys interest in this player or that, Jerry Jones is generally as cryptic as they come. Getting a straight answer out of him is like pulling teeth and he held true to form when asked about the Cowboys potential interest in former first-round draft pick Cornerback DeAndre Baker.

No Title

Jerry Jones when asked this morning on @1053thefan about the Cowboys potentially having interest in former Giants CB DeAndre Baker: “We’re always looking to improve. That’s all I’ll say there.”

DeAndre Baker of course was the 30th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft by the New York Giants, but was released back in September when armed robbery charges were filed against him. Those charges were recently all dropped, hence all of the discussion about the Cowboys “potential” interest in the former Georgia Bulldog.

I actually wrote yesterday about why the Cowboys should consider signing DeAndre Baker and to learn the organization is at least having internal discussions about him is encouraging. Sometimes linking these free agents to Dallas is like throwing spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks, but in this case it actually makes a ton of sense.

The former college All-American started 15 games for the New York Giants last season before all of the legal issues led to his release. The 23-year-old fits the parameters the Dallas Cowboys typically look for in their CBs (5’11”, 190) and would definitely fill a need if signed.

The Dallas Cowboys CB position is somewhat in flux with only Trevon Diggs and Anthony Brown in the current plans beyond the 2020 season, which makes the need for more depth a top priority in the offseason. DeAndre Baker of course could lessen that “need”.

This is a situation definitely worth following considering the current and future impact signing DeAndre Baker could have on the Dallas Cowboys. Whether or not it actually comes to fruition is something we will all have to wait to find out though.

Do you think DeAndre Baker is worth the risk for the Dallas Cowboys?

What do you think?

  1. It appears that multiple teams are interested in Baker. If Cowboys are interested, which they should be, they have to move quickly. Maybe they makes an offer, but if there is a bidding war, my guess he signs elsewhere.

  2. If he is indeed exonerated then more than likely there will be a bidding war for him. He was highly touted coming out of college so u would think he would have many suitors for his services at that all important position.

  3. Gary b…. If he was highly touted coming out of college then he would’ve been drafted before the 30th overall pick!! He is a good corner though!! And if I were Jerry I would sign him in a heartbeat!! The only way I wouldn’t sign him is if it’s gonna keep me from drafting Patrick Surtain in the next draft!! Cause as good as Baker is, I think Surtain is gonna be a lot better and I want the best!! But if we can sign Baker and then draft Surtain I’m all for it!! That would actually be a dominant secondary if we had Diggs, Baker and Surtain!! That would be awesome!!

  4. Cowboys fan- Baker was an All American who won the Jim Thorpe award as the top DB in college his last yr I can’t speak as to why he lasted till the 30th pick. Players fall in the draft for many reasons, but he’s only 22 and obviously talented. But looks like the Chief’s are getting him, so the rich get richer.
