Redskins re-signed DL Chris Baker to a three-year, $9 million contract.

Per ESPN 980 Washington's Chris Russell, the deal includes $4 million guaranteed. Baker moved all over the defensive line last season before starting the final three games at left end. Going on 27, Baker played 418 snaps, notching 28 tackles and one sack. He's expected to open 2014 as a starting end. It's about as good of a deal as Baker could have hoped for. Pro Football Focus graded him poorly as both a pass rusher and run defender in 2013.

Redskins extended restricted free agent NT Chris Baker the original-pick tender.

It's a little surprising Baker was tendered at all. The Redskins are now scheduled to pay him $1.323 million after 25-year-old Baker played under 220 defensive snaps last season. They must not be in love with Chris Neild.
