Seahawks Agree To Deal With TE Chris Baker

Two years, $4.7 million says Man Perm. Over half of the total contract will be paid in the first year.

What do you do when you can't sign Ben Watson? Sign his backup. Baker was with the Patriots last season and with the Jets for the previous seven. As O'Neil points out, offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates used a number of two TE sets in the passing game during his stint in Denver. Adding Baker provides a bit more depth on the roster should that be the direction Bates wishes to go.

Chris Baker caught 14 passes for 142 yards and two touchdowns with New England last season. Three seasons ago he caught 41 passes with the Jets. He's by no means a prolific receiver, but perhaps he's a serviceable target for whoever is under center.
