Redskins’ Baker Rocks Broncos Gear, Cheers For Denver

by Chuck Carroll

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Washington Redskins defensive lineman Chris Baker fulfilled a lifelong dream on Sunday by going to an NFL game as a fan. Of course, he did so a fan of another team.

Baker was decked out in Broncos gear and proudly hoisted signs in the stands as Denver hosted the San Diego Chargers in a divisional round playoff game this weekend.

It was a return trip to Sports Authority Field at Mile High for Baker as the Redskins were blasted 41-25 by Peyton Manning and Co. at the same stadium in October.

As it turns out, Baker was actually there to support his former high school teammate, Terrance Knighton, who is now a starting defensive tackle for the Broncos. The pair played together while attending Windsor High School in Connecticut.

There is no word yet whether Baker plans to be in attendance for next Sunday’s AFC Championship game.

Baker is scheduled to become a free agent this spring after spending the past three seasons on Washington’s roster. The Redskins re-signed the 26-year-old on a one-year tender worth $1.3 million last year.
