It's good that Baker is finally getting noticed, but the Dolphins realized his value and he is now "getting paid". I also think that Flores' system takes advantage of Baker's skillset.

If you are only familiar with Baker's name due to the three-year, $39 million extension that he signed this offseason, you have missed out on watching the emergence of one of the NFL's best young linebackers. The fourth-year pro has led the Dolphins in tackles in back-to-back seasons while also demonstrating big-play ability as a second-level pass rusher (seven sacks in 2020). If Miami is going to take the next step as a playoff contender, No. 55 will play a major role in helping the team get over the hump.
