The Redskins have re-signed defensive lineman Chris Baker, the club said Thursday.

Baker, 26, appeared in 15 regular season games for Washington in 2013 (three starts), recording 27 tackles and one sack. The 6-foot-2, 333-pound Baker has played in 29-of-32 games for Washington in the last two seasons.

Baker notched a career-high seven tackles in the Redskins’ 2013 regular season finale at the Giants, registering three tackles for loss.

Baker originally signed with Denver as an undrafted free agent in 2009. The Hampton University product also had a stint with Miami before joining Washington on September 5, 2011.

    4 mil a year for a below average player? Great! Now Orakpo is either going to be tagged or super expensive.

    I don’t get the logic of over paying for scrubs and trying to underpay a cornerstone of our defense.

    Give Orakpo his money.

    You are nuts,This guy plugged the middle effectively.Just because he didn’t have double digit sacks doesn’t mean he is a below average player!!!

    What logic are you dealing with? He’s a young up and coming DL and how does his signing make Orakpo’s cost go up? Laughable

    Chris Baker is not below average. Have you watched the games? The only starters on defense that should be brought back are:
    DE Baker
    DE Cofield (would move him to DE from NT)
    CB Hall
    CB Amerson
    OLB Kerrigan
    OLB Orakpo

    Baker is certainly better than Golston and Bowen. Unless they sign some DE’s or draft a DE early, Baker is the best option.

    PFF has him rated as the 11th worst free agent interior lineman. A -5.6 rating.

    Why did our secondary suck so much? Ohhhh cause our DLine sucked. You think Seattle would be dominant with our DL? NO. He started 3 games last year — that is not worth a $12mil contract.

    It’s only 4 million gtd over 3 years. There’s a good chance we released Bowen and carriker. Can’t find many 6 2 335 guys.

    Baker is solid and it’s $4 million guaranteed; his annual cap hit is between $2.5-3.

    As A redskins fan we gotta quit making this the most exciting Time of the year for us(free agency).

    I would like us to see us go after..
    #1 guy Jairus Byrd and Malcolm Jenkins
    Lamar Houston or Arthur Jones
    Geoff Scwartz RG and RT Mike Oher
    Maclin if possible and Maybe Dqwell Jxson

    Glad to see some people respond to the low football IQ.
    Baker is another example of a up and coming player this team has retained instead of signing another 29 year old top dollar free agent….

    great signing… bet Rak will be tagged. Rak is honestly not worth signing to a 5 yr deal.. injuries and lack of NFC East production. I would tag him and see what kind of yr he has. He will still get big money with the tag.

    Good signing, I would not tag Rak. He hasn’t proved he’s worth that much money yet, and we have way too many holes to use on one position that isn’t a qb, WR, or LT.
