[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs today gave up on Jon Baldwin, their first-round draft pick in 2011. They traded him to the San Francisco 49ers for another disappointing wide receiver who is also a former first-round draft pick, A.J. Jenkins.
Jenkins, as a rookie out of Illinois last season, played in just three games and didn’t catch a pass.
The Chiefs were equally as frustrated with Baldwin. He dropped numerous passes in training camp and a couple in preseason games. Coach Andy Reid sounded an ominous note for Baldwin on Saturday, saying, “I can tell you that when given the opportunity in this league, you’d better catch the football.’’
The Chiefs have the day off from practice today. Baldwin was the starting wide receiver opposite Dwayne Bowe in practice on Sunday.
