It's been a busy and interesting day for the Falcons. Tony Gonzalez came back into the fold and for a minute we thought Brent Grimes had too but the AJC jumped the gun on that one. Now it's LT Sam Baker that has been re-signed and it's a lengthy six year contract.
Baker has had an up and down career with the Falcons but had a very strong year last season. Being the left tackle, Baker is a very important part to the offensive line and bringing him back is a key for continuity on a line that was much improved last season. We will wait to see the terms of the contract before we do cartwheels but it's nice having another big guy back on the line.
