T.R. Robinson is home to another speedy defensive back, Javier Arenas of the Alabama Crimson Tide, Kansas City Chiefs and currently of the Arizona Cardinals, Robinson is also home of Hulk Hogan.

2011 Highlights: Marqus redshirted in 2011.

2012 Highlights: Baker played in 12 games where he made 17 tackles, and 6 passes defended. His breakout performance came in the Miami game when he recorded 3 tackles and led the team with 4 passes defended.

2013 Outlook: Third on the team in pass breakups behind Najja Johnson and Cortney Lester, Baker is third on the depth chart. Unlikely to surpass Johnson and Lester, Baker will battle with Carlos Lammons for the nickelback position.

Numerology: Baker changed from #39 to #5. 7 years ago a Florida LB, Ollice Ervin, changed from #39 to #6 because "that 39 was ugly" moral of the story, stop giving Floridians that number.
