    Mmmmm... I like the Baker contract on OTC if it proves accurate.

    Bumped his salary about 2 mil this year.

    7.775 in 2021 (for those who are cap concerned re: next year)
    14.755 in 2022 (when the S market will blow up)
    16.871 in 2023 (7.55 in dead money if cut and this will be Kyler's 5th year option)
    17.975 in 2024 (3.775 in dead money if cut so mostly funny money)

    So, from 2020 to 2024 (5 seasons) Budda will be paid 61,173,172. That breaks down to a 12.23 per year average.

    Does he cover TEs Well?

    • at the 0:25 mark vs George Kittle

    Can he cover a WR in a pinch? Or be counted on to break a pass on a long ball down the middle?
    • at the 0:48 mark vs Emanuel Sanders
    • at the 1:14 mark vs Chris Godwin



    Does he cover TEs Well?

    • at the 0:49 mark vs George Kittle
    Does he have the ability to lockdown and cover a RB who goes out in the passing game?
    • 0:35 mark vs Christian McCaffery
    Can he cover a WR in a pinch? Or be counted on to break a pass on a long ball down the middle?
    • at the 1:11 mark vs Tyler Lockett



    Does he cover TEs Well?
    • at the 1:00 mark vs Gerald Everett
    • at the 2:01 mark vs James O'Shaughnessy

    Can he cover a WR in a pinch? Or be counted on to break a pass on a long ball down the middle?
    • at the 1:30 mark vs Cowboys

    If you want me to spin the numbers, I can though.

    If you take the entire hit of this contract, 2020 through 2024, less the 14.2 mil in the final year but still counting the dead money on that final year (3.775 mil), you get a 4 year 46,973,172 contract with 3.775 mil in dead money on the 5th year. That broken down over years is 11,743,293 per year OR 10.8 mil over 4 years with a 3.775 voided year at the end.

    I will never understand the instinct to show highlight videos in response to a question of whether someone does something well.

    Check out these 35 cherry-picked plays from over 1000 last season! See! He could cover a hobbled George Kittle these times!

    Why do I get the feeling that these type of questions and more were factored into the decision to give him an extension?

    yeah... we understand the Cardinals valued him at that price. I'm sure a lot of factors were given thought before signing Jermaine Grisham to an idiotic 3 year 21 million dollar deal. Or signing Sam Bradford to a 20 million dollar deal. Or giving an injured David Johnson a huge deal. I'm asking you YOUR opinion watching him based on those questions.

    You're acting like @Folster in the politics section.

    Lmao cherry picky a few plays in a season doesn’t tell you the player. He clearly can’t cover well and I’m pretty sure you know it and are being disingenuous. His stats speak for themself quite clearly and loudly.

    This is one that sticks out in my mind. Not only gets beaten badly on the route but gets decimated trying to make a tackle.

    I think that play sticks out in everyone's mind... but aside from that play, Baker was playing very well overall and even making some big plays against Kittle, and the announcers were calling attention to it throughout the game.
