Chris “Swaggy” Baker Gets Cut

August 24th, 2018


What a surprise! (sarcasm).

One of the great Bucs embarrassments of this decade (not an easy accomplishment), a notorious thief of Team Glazer, is now back on the street with the ranks of the NFL unemployed.

Today the Bengals booted ex-Bucs defensive tackle Chris “Swaggy” Baker, cutting him to save themselves his $3 million contract, per NFL Network. Baker walked away from his Cincinnati experience with $300,000.

He is free to sign with any team and the Bucs, as fans know, have depth challenges right now on their defensive line. Don’t worry. It won’t happen. Joe would sooner rather see Ryan Sims return at defensive tackle.

Somewhat ironically, Baker’s now former Bengals teammate Michael “Ghost” Johnson, a bigger pillager of Team Glazer, is in jeopardy of getting cut by Cincinnati. Johnson, however, has played well since his return there in 2015.

One day there will be a Bucs castoff like one of those guys who begs to return to Tampa and make amends.

Perhaps Anthony Collins is ready to fill in for Donovan Smith and right a wrong?

    This guy was the single biggest thing that pissed me off about last season, and there was a lot to be pissed off about.

  3. Lamarcus Says:

    They have tons of talent and depth in Cincy. Something we haven’t been used to. Read it this morning and Baker was 7-8 on depth chart. Baker was our number 2. Says alotta about the talent we had here in Tampa

  4. El Buco Realisto Says:

    I bet the sheep are wondering if they are supposed to keep saying that GM Licht “did his job” and to hold Defensive Coordinator Smitty “accountable”????????

    #trust the coaches!!!!!! Fix the “real” problem, the roster!!!!!!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!

  5. OneBuc55 Says:

    Albert Haynesworth or Swaggy…
    Which on was worst?

    Historically the Bucs have had some tough luck in Free-Agency…Long time Bucs fans remember the Alvin Harper fiasco…Imho the best Free-Agency signing I can recall is Simeon Rice; Joey Galloway was nice too…I’m hoping for the best with Desean Jackson; hopefully we can get our money’s worth moving forward…

    Bungle in the Jungle

  11. AlteredEgo Says:

    Not even worth commenting on….

  12. Bobby M. Says:

    He’ll get vet minimum from this point on…..nobody will give that guy any other signing bonus or upfront money. It will be up to him if he chooses to play but i believe someone will come knocking.

  13. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    LOOK GUYS…….


    ……he robbed the Glazers……(fooled me once shame on you!)

    ……he tried robbing the bungles (fool me twice…..not us said marvin lewis!)

    Fatty Baker knew his days were up in the NFL when the redskins let him go but he got lucky with the BUCS last year……I’m our GM was fooled by inspirational talk from him and his agent

    ……that’s why he only lasted a year here…..

    So I applaud Baker for getting paid but his days in the NFL are OVER!!!!!

    he may just need to move to Hawai to find his new palm tree girlfriend. it may take a loose coconut to fall on his head to wake the idiot up

    Notify the palm trees.

  17. Realbucfan941 Says:

    I always wondered why he lived in Tampa Palms.

  18. BurgDweller Says:

    Cincy got off cheap and were smart to cut him. Sadly, the Bucs did neither.

  21. SchwiftyBuc Says:

    LOLOLOL! Hey DB55 your boy is still showing to be sorry af! He worked his way up to being a respectable player in Washington, got one decent contract and has fallen off a cliff and now he sucks so badly he can’t even make our’s or the Bengals roster.

  22. D-Rome Says:

    Who has more Bucs embarrassments on their watch, Dominick or Licht?

  23. Pryda... sec147 Says:

    Justice!!!!!! So happy to hear this news lol karma biach

  24. mark2001 Says:

    Maybe he will become a palm tree extractor. Rather than use machinery, he can hump them until the fall over, uprooted out of the ground.

  25. Mike Johnson Says:

    Give my man Baker a concession stand out front of Ray Jay. Call it.. Bakers Tree humpin Juice!!
