NFL Free Agency 2012: Chiefs Sign DB Mikail Baker

The Kansas City Chiefs are not finished with picking up some new players via the free agent market for the upcoming 2012 season.

According to a press release at the official Kansas City Chiefs website, the Chiefs have signed free agent defensive back Mikail Baker. Baker was the No. 216 overall pick in the 2011 draft and was selected by the St. Louis Rams.

Baker suffered and injury prior to the start of the 2011 NFL season and was placed on injured reserve before being released by the Rams in October.

During Baker's final year with the Baylor Bears in 2010, he recorded 39 solo tackles and 49 total tackles as a cornerback in 13 games, as well as breaking up three passes and grabbing one interception. Baker has a history of injury at the college and pro level, but could be a low-risk high-reward contract for the Chiefs in their secondary.
