Former Chiefs CB Deandre Baker is attempting an NFL comeback, reportedly working out with the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday.

Originally a first-round pick by the New York Giants in 2019, Baker flamed out in New York before spending two years with the Chiefs. He hasn't been in the league since 2021 though was named to the All-UFL Defensive Team for his work on the DC Defenders.

Still only 26 years old, Baker hopes to make an NFL roster and prove he still belongs on the field on Sundays.

Baker appeared in only 10 games for Kansas City during his two years with the team (2020-2021), starting three times. He has 10 career deflected passes but no interceptions.

With the Defenders, Baker notched 19 tackles and was widely regarded as one of the UFL's premier cover corners. He's not yet tapped into the potential that made him a star at Georgia, though the Cowboys hope that underlying promise is still there.

Dallas worked out four UFL players during the first day of the team's mandatory minicamp. They've yet to offer Baker or any others a contract though it's a positive sign for Baker's interest around the NFL regardless.

The Chiefs have been active in scouting potential new playmakers as well, bringing in four defensive linemen for workouts during their minicamp. Baker's time in Kansas City is over, and he's one of the few players on the roster in the last five years without a Super Bowl ring, but his youth and pedigree should keep giving him looks.
