Chris Baker the Touchdown Watcher gets released

By: Greg
Chris Baker the Touchdown Maker Watcher has been cut from the Patriots after one season. Baker was more of a blocking than recieiving tight end. On the season Baker had 14 receptions for 142 yards and two tuddies.
"Baker's contract had extended through 2013, although there was a significant bonus prior to the 2011 season that essentially made it a two-year deal. He was scheduled to earn $2 million in base salary this season." Mike Reiss- ESPN

With Ben Watson most likely gone and Baker cut that leaves a huge hole and turnover at the tight end position. TE's over that last few season have not been a strong spot of the Patriots. They could go after one in a Trade (G-reg Olsen), Free Agency (Owen Daniels) or the Draft. With Wes Welker on the team I dont see the TE spot as one of the Pats main needs. Welker eats up all the catches underneath but it couldnt hurt having a stud TE.

  1. Baker was a great TE can be better used in another organization. The system is not for using TE Good Luck to this fine Player in the rest of his career!!!!!!!!
