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

    When it comes to giving any kind of information away about the 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.

    DeAndre Baker of course was the 30th overall pick in the by the , 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 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 . The 23-year-old fits the parameters the Dallas Cowboys typically look for in their (5'11”, 190) and would definitely fill a need if signed.

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

    This is a situation definitely worth following considering the current and future impact 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?

    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.

    He would definitely be worthy of a workout anyway

    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.

    Chris Caruso

    Absolutely, if there is no legal linkage and he is not found to be a liability, you better sign him quickly!!!

    Cowboys fan

    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!!

    Baker signing with Chiefs.

    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.
