The Kansas City Chiefs signed free agent defensive back Mikail Baker, the team announced. The 6-foot, 205-pounder entered the NFL as a seventh-round draft choice of the St. Louis Rams last year. Baker was placed on injured reserve prior to the start of his rookie year before being released by the Rams on Oct. 13, 2011.

The Baylor University product played in 50 games (13 starts) during his collegiate career with 52 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, five passes defensed, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.

He also played receiver for the Bears, catching 26 passes for 354 yards (13.6 avg.) with two touchdowns. He owns 83 kickoff returns for 1,963 yards with one touchdown.

Baker is regarded as the most prolific kick returner in Baylor history as he holds the school’s career records for returns (83) and return yardage (1,963).
