Top Kawaan Baker News

  • Saints' Kawaan Baker: Sticks with Saints

    The Saints signed Baker to a reserve/future contract Monday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Baker was a seventh-round pick in the 2021 draft and spent the majority of the season on the Saints' practice squad. He was elevated to the active roster for two games and played entirely on special teams. Baker will have a chance to make the Saints' active roster in 2022 with a strong showing during offseason activities and training camp.

  • Saints' Kawaan Baker: Elevated to active roster

    The Saints elevated Baker from their practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    After making his season debut in Week 16, Baker will be elevated for a second straight game. In his first contest, the rookie seventh-round pick recorded one tackle while playing 16 snaps on special teams. He's expected to have a similar role in Week 17.

  • Kawaan Baker: Back to practice squad

    Baker reverted to the Saints' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Baker was a gameday elevation for Monday's loss to Miami and recorded one tackle while playing 16 snaps on special teams. He's now back on the practice squad heading into Week 17.

  • Saints' Kawaan Baker: Elevated Monday

    Baker was elevated from the Saints' practice squad ahead of Monday's game against the Dolphins, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

    Baker will join the active roster as a COVID-19 replacement for Week 16. The 2021 seventh-rounder hasn't yet made his regular-season debut in the NFL, and he's unlikely to have a significant fantasy role Monday.

  • Kawaan Baker: Exits New Orleans

    The Saints waived Baker on Tuesday.

    Baker was considered to have an outside shot at landing on New Orleans' 53-man roster but ultimately did not make the cut. Still, the Saints' seventh-round draft pick seems like a prime candidate to land on its practice squad should he ultimately go unclaimed on waivers.

  • Saints' Kawaan Baker: Working with starters

    Baker operated with the starting offense during Wednesday's practice, John Hendrix of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Baker apparently lined up opposite Marquez Callaway when the offense first took the field. Those two then rotated reps with Tre'Quan Smith, Deonte Harris, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Chris Hogan. While it may be hard to predict how the pecking order at receiver will shake out with Michael Thomas (ankle) sidelined, Baker at least seems to be making a strong case for a roster spot ahead of the regular season.

  • Saints' Kawaan Baker: Opportunity getting bigger

    Baker has an opportunity to see snaps early in the season with Michael Thomas (ankle) expected to miss at least the first four games, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

    While Tre'Quan Smith is primed to hold down the No. 1 role in Thomas' absence, Marquez Callaway and Deonte Harris are the favorites to handle the No. 2 and 3 roles behind him. However, nothing is set in stone, and Baker easily could push Callaway and Harris for some sort of offensive role during training camp. In fact, if Baker can impress the coaching staff during this window of opportunity, it's not impossible that the South Alabama product is involved in the offense all season long.
