The Dallas Cowboys reportedly hosted a workout for a UFL cornerback on Tuesday afternoon.

DeAndre Baker, a first-round pick by the New York Giants in 2019, is keen on returning to the NFL following a spell with the UFL’s DC Defenders this year.

DeAndre Baker’s First Stint In The NFL Didn’t Go So Well

The 26-year-old was the 30th overall pick out of Georgia in 2019 after the Giants made a trade with the Seattle Seahawks that saw them relinquish picks 37, 132, and 142.

He had a subdued rookie campaign, making 15 starts from his 16 appearances. Baker registered 61 tackles, along with eight pass breakups and zero interceptions.

The former Bulldogs standout was released at the end of the season, having been accused of armed robbery in 2020. After the charges against him were dropped, he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs. He played the rest of the 2020 season and the following term with the team.

Baker hasn’t played in the NFL since 2021 but got on the Defenders UFL roster this year. He was a selection for the All-UFL team after 10 appearances in which he recorded 22 tackles, three pass breakups, and one interception.

As to whether the Dallas Cowboys offer him a contract remains to be seen.
