Chris Baker Is Ready To Face Old Team

Last Sunday in front of a raucous crowd at FedExField, the Washington Redskins managed many firsts. There was the first home victory of the season, the first Brian Orakpo interception and subsequent pick-six, the first Roy Helu Jr. three touchdown performance, the first 40-point game of 2013 and so on and so forth.

However, there was only one play that deserved it’s own dance—defensive lineman Chris Baker’s first career sack.

Baker is in his second season with the Redskins and is one of the most enjoyable people to be around—football player or not. When it’s time to strap down and get to work, Baker is there ready to contribute whether it be at nose tackle or defensive end. Away from the field, he’s always there to provide a hearty laugh and keep the spirit of the locker room up.

Mike Shanahan won’t be the only notable return to Denver. The Mile High City is where Baker got his big break in the NFL.

Appearing in five games this season, Baker has already recorded eight tackles and of course the first career sack with a dance dedicated to YouTube sensation Terio.

Ooh kill ‘em.

In 15 games last year he had 15 tackles.

But like teammates London Fletcher and Darrel Young, Baker was forced to go the undrafted route to reach his NFL dream.

Swaggy got his big break with the Broncos, even appearing in one game during the 2009 season. But just days shy of the 2010 season opener, he was released.

Now with the Redskins, Sunday will mark his official return to Denver, both thankful for the opportunity but ready to prove the Broncos wrong for letting him go.
