The Arizona Cardinals inked another member of their 2017 draft class on Thursday, as the team has agreed to terms with defensive back Budda Baker.
A second-round pick out of Washington, Baker’s deal is for four years with the terms not being disclosed.
The 5-foot-10 Baker was a dynamic player for the Huskies, for whom in 2016 he led the team with 71 tackles and 10 tackles for loss while adding three sacks, two interceptions, eight passes defensed and one forced fumble in 14 games.
A semifinalist for both the Bednarik and Jim Thorpe Awards, Baker was a first-team All-American selection whom the Cardinals traded up in the second round to select.
With Baker under contract, the Cardinals now have all but one member of their six-player haul signed, as first-round pick Haason Reddick is the only player who has not yet agreed to terms.
