Saints' Kawaan Baker: Remaining with New Orleans
The Saints signed Baker to a reserve/future contract Thursday, per the team's official site.
Baker has been through the wringer since entering the NFL in 2021, as he was let go by New Orleans, handed a six-game suspension for violating the league's PED policy, waived by the Seahawks, cut by the Packers, discharged from the Eagles' practice squad and finally recalled to the Saints' practice squad in that span.

Kawaan Baker: Finds new team
Baker was signed to the Saints' practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Baker was most recently on the Eagles' practice squad, and has yet to play an NFL game this season. However, he spent part of 2021 in New Orleans, playing two games for the team. With Chris Olave dealing with a hamstring injury, and Jarvis Landry (ankle) on IR, the Saints are currently short-handed at receiver. Baker will work to make his way to the active roster before the current season comes to a close.... See More ... See Less
Kawaan Baker: Done on Eagles' practice squad
Philadelphia cut Baker from its practice squad Tuesday.
Less than a full week after Baker signed onto the Eagles' practice squad, the team has already decided to part ways with him. The 2021 seventh-rounder has great size (6-foot-1, 215 lbs.) and speed (4.43-second 40), but he has yet to see an offensive snap in his young NFL career. Now he'll have to look for another opportunity elsewhere.... See More ... See Less

Kawaan Baker: Let go after suspension
Baker was waived by the Seahawks following the end of his six-game suspension Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Baker finished serving a six-game suspension for violating the league's PED policy, though he'll now have to make his 2022 debut elsewhere. The second-year wideout played 27 special-teams snaps in two games while bouncing back and forth between the Saints' active roster and practice squad last season. Baker will likely look to land a practice-squad contract with a new team where he can serve as a game-day activation.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kawaan Baker: Suspended six games
Baker has been suspended six games for violating the league's PED policy, Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network reports.
Baker will be first available to return during the Saints' Week 7 clash against the Cardinals on Thursday Night Football. After being selected 255th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft by New Orleans, Baker spent his rookie season jumping back and forth between the team's active roster and practice squad, where he ultimately appeared in two games on special teams. Given the second-year receiver entered camp fighting for a roster spot, the near future doesn't present a clear path to targets for Baker, as the Saints have Michael Thomas (ankle) back, drafted Chris Olave 11th overall in this year's NFL Draft and signed Jarvis Landry back in May, not to mention Marquez Callaway and Tre-Quan Smith's established rapport in this offense....
