Chris Baker down to 300 pounds
Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Chris Baker is down to 300 pounds after being listed at 320.
Baker, a free-agent signing from Tampa Bay after the Bucs released him, enters his tenth season. The vet said he is in for a bounce-back season. “Last year was obviously a down year, but I know once I get to playing the way I know I’m capable of playing, I could be one of the top defensive tackles in the league. Being able to play next to a guy like Geno, Carlos (Dunlap) and Mike, it also will help me out if they have to work on double-teaming Geno, then maybe I can get some singles. It’s just a matter of going out there and playing and feeling comfortable.”
