Drafted No. 73 overall  in 2018 by the Miami Dolphins, outside linebacker Jerome Baker has lacked consistency as a starter for the club.

Jerome Baker Salary

Baker has played all five of his NFL seasons with the Miami Dolphins. Baker signed a three-year, $37,500,000 contract, including a $12,500,000 signing bonus, with $28,400,000 guaranteed and an average annual salary of $12,500,000.

Jerome Baker Cap Hit

The 26-year-old carries a $12,766,111 cap hit in 2023.

Jerome Baker Potential Extension

There’s a lot of chatter surrounding Miami that this will be Baker’s final season with the club, despite still being signed in 2024. He’s lacked consistency and isn’t worth his current price tag, but his number against the cap drops substantially after 2023 if they decide to cut him.

With that in mind, Baker could be looking for a new area code in 2023.

He had a career-high seven sacks in 2020 but hasn’t found consistency getting to the quarterback. As a result, it might be difficult for him to get term with his next contract.
