Why Sam Baker's worthless *** is still on this team.

I don't think Lofton is worth 8m.. however, if he signs in TB or Philly for 6.5-7m, and we have Baker sitting on the bench eating 2m.. I'm going to be furious.

Until they are required to be under the cap and/or the 53 man cut it doesn't matter. Right now they don't have a good LT on the team. If he had a roster bonus due then that would be more telling whether they keep him or cut him right now.

Insurance. Just in case we don't get the guys we want. There's no pressing need to cut him at this point. Let us sign a LT and you'll see him gone the next day...

Exactly.. I'm sure they are looking to upgrade, but if that don't go our way at least we have an available player (backup) instead of unused dollars.

I know he is eating up cap space, but isn't he a FA next year? The LTs that are available in FA all have questions regarding their health and ability to stay on the field. Considering this, it might be worth to keep Baker around for one more year to back up if the new LT goes down with an injury, even dispite his salary..

I think the FO has a plan with Baker.. He can't continue to suck that much, and expect to be on the team forever.

You have to watch the video posted on danight's thread. It shows Bakers showing off his pickup truck and explaining why it has all the damage on both sides. It unlocks the mystery on why he sucks as a blocker. HE'S FARUUKEN BLIND! He admits to scraping walls and such that tore up the truck. BINGO! He can't block cause he doesn't see them. OMG! HIS PEE POOR PLAY IS EXPLAINED BY NONE OTHER THAN HIMSELF? He needs a redtip cane and seeing eye dog.

You're reading too much into that video.. It was from 2007 way before he got paid for playing football, and only 22 years old. What kind of car did you expect him to have? The video is just a spoof on all of the "cribs" style videos, and he's having a little fun..

What I don't understand is how far Baker has fallen from 2008 to 2012.

Yeah, he was actually one of the top LT prospects and was playing at a very high level over his 4 year starting tenure in college..

But he did have som red flags, as he had some injury problems.. And those problems have continued throughout his NFL carrer - i guess that is the biggest factor for his lack of development.

I say give him one more year as a backup for a new FA LT, and see where he is at next year.

Get ready.

Remember we will sacrifice Lofton for the failed pick at LT...Baker.

He will be cut in due time... If you look closely, were signing players now, we havent cut anyone yet.... Gotta do things one thing at a time...
