The Arizona Cardinals may seek assistance from a recently released cornerback.

As Charen Williams of Pro Football Talk reported, the Cardinals took on Deandre Baker on Wednesday,

Three days after being hacked by the Kansas City Chiefs.

The New York Giants named Baker the No. 30 pick in 2019, but he only lasted a year with the team.

They released him following charges of robbery with a firearm, which was later released.

Baker played 10 games with Kansas City in the last two seasons.

He's still seeking his first caregiver NFL takeaway.

In addition, Baker has struggled a lot in coverage.

Opponents completed 18 of 24 goals against him for 192 yards and a touchdown last season.

Playing without star cornerback Patrick Peterson for the first time in a decade, Arizona finished seventh in the passing defense last season.

The Cardinals are now looking to strengthen their opening outside cornerback with slotted corner Byron Murphy Jr.

Baker's workout comes a day after the Cardinals signed Cortez Davis, a free agent from Hawaii.

Baker isn't the only famous cornerback on the market; Joe Haden, Chris Harris, Janoris Jenkins,

And Richard Sherman remains free agent as most teams prepare to start the preseason this week.
