Redskins re-sign DL Chris Baker to 3-yr, $12M deal

AP - Sports

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- The Washington Redskins have re-signed defensive lineman Chris Baker to a three-year contract with $12 million.

The deal announced Thursday includes $4 million of guaranteed money.

Baker has spent two seasons with the Redskins, playing in 29 games. He started the final three games last season after Stephen Bowen was sidelined with a knee injury.

Baker has played both tackle and end on the defensive line, and he'll be a possible contender for a regular starting job at end in the team's 3-4 alignment under new coach Jay Gruden, especially with both Bowen and Adam Carriker recovering from major injuries.

The 26-year-old Baker was undrafted out of Hampton. He played with Denver and Miami before joining the Redskins in 2012.
