  • Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Underwhelms in 2021

    Baker notched 92 tackles (62 solo), 5.5 sacks, four pass breakups, one interception and one forced fumble across 16 appearances in 2021. Baker saw his numbers decline in terms of both tackles and sacks despite appearing in the same amount of contests as he did in 2020, and maintaining an every-down role on defense. That said, he did end the 2021 campaign on a high note, with 26 tackles and 4.5 sacks in his last four appearances. The 25-year-old will attempt to bounce back under a new head couch during the 2022 season, after which the Dolphins could evaluate a potential 'out' in his contract.
