Chris Baker Spent Easter With His Daughter For The First Time


A post shared by Chris Baker (@bigbake92) on

There have been plenty of firsts for Chris Baker this year starting with his career high in sacks and continuing with the birth of his daughter Aria in January.

There's a good amount of candy in her basket, but it's fair to say Chris will be helping out with consuming most of it.

"You know, I feel like it's been a plan of God to position me throughout these years," Baker said of his year back in January. "You know, I started out as a practice squad guy and just learning ropes. In order to be a leader you got to learn how to follow and the first few years of me playing in the league I was following the older guys- Barry Cofield to Steven Bowen, watch huddles, professionals carried themselves on and off the field, and I was learning every year. When God said it was my time, it was this year and I've just been able to, you know, just take advantage of every opportunity that God has given me and I've been rolling."

Baker said that head coach Jay Gruden teased him the day after Aria was born that she looked like her mom. Though, these photos are starting to disprove that.
