$22.1m guaranteed at signing. Assume the $33.1 is injury guarantee.
Everyone is right here. He is overrated but he is also very good on a team without a great deal of talent. And he's still very young. If he fixes his ball skills he could very well be elite.
The market sets the price. By the time guys like Derwin James, Jamal Adams and the like get paid it will seem cheap.
Anthony Harrishow many game changing plays can you remember? Seriously? He’s now getting paid as though HE IS the Ed Reed of the NFL back there. Tackles? Lol
I'm thinking with Murphy permanently in the slot and Simmons on the team, it will allow the Cards to use Baker more creatively and to his strengths.Wow...I guess he is a core piece of the defense moving forward but the guy is just not much of a playmaker yet he is getting paid like one.
Malik Hooker all FAs next year.
all FAs the year after.
Two years and this looks like a discount.

sorry Chopper there is nothing he could bring to the negotiation table saying he deserves to be the highest paid safety in football. Literally nothing. Again you don’t pay a safety game changing money when your not a game changer. He’s a nice piece and plays hard sure. But he’s not even close to a playmaking game changer. Based on his level of play and INTS and completion % against him he will still be overpaid even when others pass him.
Led the NFL I'm defeats for DBs, more than Jamal Adams.
Baker is blamed so much on this board that he is UNDERRATED by our fans. Pro Bowler. Voted to the NFLs 100 team. And as Chopper stated, now is the time to overpay because when Murray gets $40m per, the Cardinals are going to be in a much tougher position.

People get so blinded by one stat (INT) that they ignore everything else that Budda does.

Adrian Wilson made more plays in one season (2006) than Baker has in 3 (I am counting sacks, INTs and Forced Fumbles). Nobody is doubting he can tackle and rarely misses tackles but when you are paying a guy that much you expecting a guy to be a difference maker and he isn't. He is good player but nothing special.
1000% zeros post.... We are literally paying this guy like he’s the best game changing safety in the league and he’s just not… Even when other safety’s pass himhe will be overpaid. He’s being paid as though he’s today’s Ed Reed.... it’s beyond laughable.
He's the highest-paid until the next contract comes up for a quality Safety.
The "market" dictates the price.
