The team didn't announce the terms of Baker's deal, but Jason La Canfora of CBS reported it was $12 million for three years, with $4 million guaranteed.

Following the announcement, Baker tweeted: "So happy that I'm still a #Redskin. GOD IS GOOD."

The 26-year-old Baker appeared in 15 games in 2013 and started the final three at right defensive end. Baker finished with 28 tackles, 16 of them solo, and recorded a sack during Week Seven against the Bears.

He's expected to contend for the starting right defensive end spot in 2014.

Baker has appeared in 31 games during his career -- 29 with the Redskins -- compiling 43 career tackles (according to STATS, LLC), eight tackles for loss, two passes defended and one sack.

He played at Penn State and Hampton collegiately before the Denver Broncos signed him as a college free agent in April 2009.

Denver released Baker in September 2010, and then the Dolphins signed him. He played in one game for Miami, and then the team released him in July 2011. He signed with the Redskins in September of that year.

The Redskins previously re-signed potential free-agent cornerback DeAngelo Hall and wide receiver Aldrick Robinson.
