“The Pepto was the worst,” Baker said. “It stained everything.”

There were other liquids. Gatorade. Pickle juice. Some ointments. And a baby powder chaser.

“There wasn’t much we didn’t dump on that guy,” Robison said. “Except acid and liquid nitrogen.”

Years ago, then first-round draft pick Erasmus James made things worse for himself when he got visibly upset and emotional after veterans doused his clothes in water and set them outside to freeze. Baker, on the other hand, was accepted under the wings of the veterans when he laughed his way through the NFL hazing.

“He’s really shown us a lot since he’s been here,” Robison said. “We need that last guy on the D-line to step up. Thursday night could be a big night for Chase.”
