The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a six-year contract with left tackle Sam Baker.

After having a terrible, injury-riddled campaign in 2011, Baker justified the front office’s faith in him by having the best season of his career.

Baker has been protecting Matt Ryan’s blindside since 2008, and it’ll look to continue for the foreseeable future.

The Falcons promised to make retaining their own guys the main focus for this year’s free agency, and they’ve made good on that promise.
