Baker, who just completed his second full season with the Redskins, signed a three-year deal worth $12 million, his agent Tony Paige said. The contract includes $4 million in guaranteed money.
Baker was the second-most productive defensive lineman on Washington’s roster behind nose tackle Barry Cofield.
Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett in January highlighted re-signing Baker as one of Washington’s priority moves of the offseason. The 6-foot-2, 333-pound Hampton product boasts the versatility to play both defensive end and nose tackle. He is expected to contend for the starting job at right end.
Washington has now re-signed three of their impending free agents: Baker, cornerback DeAngelo Hall and wide receiver Aldrick Robinson.
