WASHINGTON — Attention, Redskins fans: Chris “Swaggy” Baker has left the building, both physically and now digitally.
The former Washington defensive end has a new team, new city, new threads and perhaps a new number. It only seems reasonable that he would also have a new Twitter handle; @cbaker92redskin wasn’t going to have the same ring in Tampa.
