Fort Wayne (incnow.tv)- It's not easy to be out of work and when you don't have much control on whether you will get to do your job again it can feel even more helpless. That is what former Wayne star, punter Jason Baker has been going through for the last year.

Baker was released by Carolina at this time a year ago after his 11th season in the NFL, but that is just the beginning of the story. Not long before last season Baker was still hoping to be signed by a new NFL team when he was injured in a minor accident while helping his parents with a project at their house. The incident kept Baker out of the league all last season but he is back at 100% and ready for a return to the NFL.
