A suppressor without baffles?

Can such a device decrease the decibel level of muzzle report appreciably?

I have no experience with suppressors so excuse my ignorance. I know that baffles slow down and circulate the burning powder to reduce pressure and seep it out slower.

But if you have only a tube and no baffles, and is large enough, maybe even reflexive by being able to wrap around the barrel, shouldn't this design also reduce sound? The major questions are how efficient would such a design be, and how large would it be.
