Defensive lineman Chris Baker has agreed to a one-year deal with Cincinnati, via Chick Hernandez of NBC Sports Washington.
Baker, who is down to 300 pounds, has passed his physical, via Hernandez.
The Bucs signed Baker to a three-year, $15.75 million contract, with $6 million guaranteed, during the 2017 offseason. But Baker, who made only 33 tackles in 15 games, didn’t prove a fit in any way, and the Bucs elected to save $4.88 million with his release.
The last three years, Willson shared the field with five-time Pro Bowler Jimmy Graham. The two developed a close bond and Willson praised his former teammate for elevating his approach.
“I think the biggest thing that I picked up from Jimmy was the effort he put into his body and his preparation off the field,” Willson said. “I thought I was dedicated years ago. Then I met Jimmy and I realized there was a whole other level I had to get myself to.”
That’s not because he was thrilled with the effort he put forth at the combine, however. Ridley told Kimberly Jones of NFL Media that he wasn’t happy with how he ran the 40 he posted a 4.43 time or other drills even if he doesn’t see the point of some of them.
I don’t get into a receiver stance and broad jump before I run a route, Ridley said. Whoever gets me is getting a great er, Ridley said. бн I know I can beat all those scores by a lot, but I was trying to get ready for my 40, which I was upset about, too. I didn’t have a great combine, not like I wanted to. I should’ve gone in there and just run the 40 and run routes, and done all the other stuff here. бн Mistake.
Ridley also told Jones that he still feels like he is the best receiver in the draft and draft analysts agree with that ranking as we move closer to the start of the first round in April.
