[KC Chiefs.com] Jonathan Baldwin established a reputation for making the near-impossible catch last year with an around-the-defender grab of a pass against the Denver Broncos.
He solidified it at the Chiefs’ practice Tuesday, when he made a one-handed diving grab of a Matt Cassel pass for a touchdown over cornerback Stanford Routt. Baldwin’s ability to go up and get a pass has prompted Cassel and other Chiefs quarterbacks to try throws to Baldwin in one-on-one coverage that they might not make to other receivers.
By now, they’re aware the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Baldwin has a distinct size advantage over most cornerbacks and will win most jump-ball opportunities.
The catch came with just seconds remaining in a 2-minute drill near the end of practice and was just the kind of thing the Chiefs envisioned when they made Baldwin their first-round draft pick last year.
“It was a 2-minute situation, and the coach is always talking about making plays,” Baldwin said. “I just had to step up and make a play.
