He finished the regular season with 63 tackles, three interceptions, seven passes defensed and two sacks.

Tennessee’s Kevin Byard and Buffalo’s Jordan Poyer made the first team at safety, while Baker was joined by Buffalo’s Micah Hyde and Denver’s Justin Simmons on the All-Pro Second Team. Baker, Hyde and Simmons were tied in voting.
