The Bengals seem to be building something that has the chance to be special on offense around quarterback Joe Burrow, and wide receivers Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, but the defense remains a work in progress.
Cincinnati also has a history of taking on reclamation projects, and Baker would certainly fit that mold. LeShaun Sims is out, Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander are also battling injuries, so similarly to the Seahawks, the Bengals could conceivably get Baker on the field rather quickly.
Baker would arrive in Cincinnati as the most pedigreed defensive back on the roster and wold push for immediate snaps. The Bengals also play the Giants after the bye week, but there is no telling at this stage whether Baker would even be eligible to play in time for that game.
