Per NFL Network, Baker agrees to 6 year deal with Atlanta.

Can't wait to see the clowns play a tougher schedule again like they had to in 2011....Average team at best.

Brilliant! Now if Patty Ice will get a mega deal, we'll have her and the the rest of her team right where we want 'em!

That's quite the long term contract. Baker had a good year and earned a 6 year contract. I think ATL is going to regret this move.

6 years means nothing. All of these contracts are closer to three year deals.

with that much money they should've gone after Jake Long

That is a lot for Baker, too much (IMO). I think Long's heart is still in Miami and he will end up going back there for @ $8M per year.

Great. I was hoping he'd go back to Atlanta.

$7M a year isn't really that bad for a starting tackle. Baker isn't that great of a tackle, but I don't think they hamstrung themselves much with that deal.

Not too bad from a cap standpoint. It should keep him below 6M base salary throughtout the six years. 10M pro-rated bonus is affordable. Problem is Baker did well in a contract year and may return to underachieving. Either way, Falcons are committed long term to Baker and I think it was a mistake. Excellent!
