Falcons Part Ways with Sam Baker


The Atlanta Falcons are moving on from one their former first-round picks. The Falcons announced Thursday that they have released tackle Sam Baker, who started 61 games in six seasons with the team after being selected with the 21st overall pick in the 2008 draft. Baker missed all of 2014 with a torn patellar tendon and has played in just four games the past two seasons due to knee issues. He had been a candidate to move inside and compete for the team’s left guard job this summer.
