Kawaan Baker, WR (NO)

Suspended six games

Baker has been suspended six games for violating the league's PED policy, Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network reports.

Baker will be first available to return during the Saints' Week 7 clash against the Cardinals on Thursday Night Football. After being selected 255th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft by New Orleans, Baker spent his rookie season jumping back-and-forth between the team's active roster and practice squad, where he ultimately appeared in two games on special teams. Given the second-year receiver entered camp fighting for a roster spot, the near future doesn't present a clear path to targets for Baker as the Saints have Michael Thomas (ankle) back, drafted Chris Olave 11th-overall in this year's NFL Draft and signed Jarvis Landry back in May, not to mention Marquez Callaway and Tre-Quan Smith's established rapport in this offense.
