Tight end was a relative weak spot for the Patriots in 2008. Ben Watson and David Thomas were both inconsistent. But suddenly, tight end is no longer an issue.
The NFL network is reporting that the Patriots have reached an agreement on free agent tight end Chris Baker. Baker, as you probably know, was most recently with the New York Jets.
Baker looks to be a solid blocker as well as a solid pass catcher, although he isn’t going to amaze you in either area. The Patriots now have Benjamin Watson, Chris Baker, David Thomas, and Tyson DeVree at tight end.
