Giants' Deandre Baker: Approved to leave Florida
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A Broward County (Fla.) judge granted Baker conditional approval to leave the state and return to New Jersey for work-related reasons, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Though the 22-year-old will be allowed to work out with the Giants so long as he continues to meet the accompanying conditions tied to his May 16 arrest, it's unclear if the team will allow him to participate while his legal situation remains unresolved. Baker, who is pleading not guilty to four counts of armed robbery and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm, turned himself into authorities a couple days after the alleged incident occurred in Florida and has since been released on bond.

Giants' Deandre Baker: Arrest warrant issued
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker, a first-round pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, has had a warrant for his arrest issued Thursday by the Miramar (Fla.) Police Department.

Baker's arrest warrant is reportedly connected with an armed robbery which took place in Miramar, Florida on Wednesday. Seattle cornerback Quinton Dunbar has also had a warrant for his arrest issued due to his involvement with the incident. Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Giants initial statement reads: "We are aware of the situation. We have been in contact with DeAndre. We have no further comment at this time."

Giants' Deandre Baker: No INTs in rookie year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker recorded 61 tackles (48 solo) and eight defended passes across 16 games in 2019.

The rookie first-round pick handled a starting role at cornerback in his debut season, and his on-field results were mixed at best. Baker will likely handle a starting gig again in 2020, but he hasn't yet demonstrated the big-play upside necessary to become a high-end IDP asset.

Giants' Deandre Baker: Ready for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Baker worked as a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday due to the knee issue, but the injury won't impact his availability for the season finale. The 22-year-old will look to finish the season strong versus a depleted Philadelphia receiving corps.

Giants' Deandre Baker: Limited in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker was limited in Thursday's practice due to a knee injury, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Baker wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, a hint that his knee issue could have been sustained during weekly practices. There's not yet any reason to worry that the starting cornerback is in danger of missing Sunday's divisional tilt against the Eagles, and if he manages to practice fully Friday, it'll assuage any lingering concerns.

Giants' Deandre Baker: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker had eight tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's loss to the Lions.

The rookie first-round pick stepped into the starting role Week 2 and the eight tackles is his career high through eight games. Baker has two passes defensed but is still looking for his first interception.

Giants' Deandre Baker: Primed for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker will start at left cornerback Sunday versus the Bills, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Baker appears to have surpassed Antonio Hamilton on the Giants' depth chart. After playing 31 snaps on defense Week 1 and notching two tackles (one solo), the rookie first-round pick will show what he can do in a full-time role.

Giants' Deandre Baker: Clear of knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker (knee) participated in 11-on-11 drills at practice Sunday, Mollie Walker of the New York Post reports.

Baker missed the last two preseason contests after suffering a knee sprain Aug. 11, but he appears on track to play in Thursday's exhibition finale. The rookie first-round pick was splitting reps on the first-team defense with Janoris Jenkins and Corey Ballentine.

Giants' Deandre Baker: Not expected to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker (knee) participated in a pregame warmup prior to Thursday's contest against the Bengals, but he isn't expected to play, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Baker originally injured his knee in practice Aug. 11 and is hoping to return in time for the opening of the regular season. If the rookie doesn't play Thursday, Grant Haley would likely start opposite Janoris Jenkins.

Giants' Deandre Baker: Unlikely to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker (knee) is expected to sit out Friday's preseason game against the Bears, Ryan Dunleavy of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Baker is nursing a knee sprain and expected to miss several weeks, so his lack of availability is unsurprising. The rookie first-round pick will focus on getting fully healthy for the regular season.

Giants' Deandre Baker: Managing knee sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker is expected to miss multiple weeks due to a knee sprain, Tom Pelissero of reports.

Baker suffered a worrisome injury Sunday and received an MRI on his knee. The 2019 first-round pick was feared to have possibly suffered an ACL injury, so the diagnosis of a knee sprain is positive news. The Giants are likely to take a cautious approach to the rookie cornerback's recovery.

Giants' Deandre Baker: Injures knee in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baker suffered a knee injury during individual drills and was unable to suit up for Sunday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Per Salomone, Baker is expected to get an MRI on his knee, suggesting there's some concern with the injury. The Giants spent the 30th-overall pick on the Georgia product, so expect the team to be extremely cautious with him. With Baker out, it opens the door for Antonio Hamilton and Corey Ballentine to see an increase in reps.

Giants' Deandre Baker: Goes to Giants as first CB taken
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants selected Baker in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 30th overall.

Baker was a clear priority for the Giants, who traded back into the first round to nab the former Georgia Bulldog when he was still available at pick No. 30. Though he doesn't have the classic speed that most teams covet in a boundary corner (4.52 40-yard dash), Baker plays with tremendous technique, instinct and physicality. He had seven interceptions during his collegiate career, and as a senior he took home the Jim Thorpe Award for the nation's top defensive back. Baker has a strong chance to start opposite Janoris Jenkins in New York's secondary.
