08/06/14 - WR Jon Baldwin was waived by the Lions (failed physical) Wednesday (Aug. 6).
08/05/14 - WR Jon Baldwin was claimed on waivers by the Lions from the San Francisco 49ers. Baldwin had two disappointing seasons in Kansas City before being traded to the 49ers last year, and he had just three catches for 28 yards in seven games last season. Baldwin will compete for one of the final wide receiver spots behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate.
10/25/13 - WR Jon Baldwin (illness) was limited Friday and is questionable to play against the Jaguars.
10/23/13 - --WR Jon Baldwin (illness) did not practice Wednesday, but is expected to play against the Jaguars.
08/19/13 - Former first-round pick A.J. Jenkins was traded from the San Francisco 49ers to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin, another failed top pick.
Jenkins was a surprise selection at the bottom of the first round in 2012 and dropped the only pass intended for him in a regular season game as a rookie. His inconsistency continued in the first two weeks of preseason play. While leading 49ers' wide receivers in total snaps, he had only one catch; it resulted in a fumble.
"Things factor in, but it's longstanding -- football hasn't changed since the inception. The best players make the team," coach Jim Harbaugh said, outlining the 11 wide receivers San Francisco carried on its roster into last week's preseason game.
12/24/12 - WR Jon Baldwin was the favorite target of QB Brady Quinn in the Chiefs' loss to Indianapolis. Baldwin was targeted six times, making just two catches for 64 yards. One of those plays was the long passing play of the game when Baldwin and Quinn hooked up for a 57-yard gain.
12/17/12 - WR Jon Baldwin continues to struggle to inject himself into the Chiefs' offense. The team's first-round selection in the 2011 NFL Draft didn't catch a pass against Oakland, despite the fact Dwayne Bowe was off the field because of injury. In the 13 games that he's played this season, Baldwin has been shut out four times and caught only one pass in four other games.
For the season, he has 18 catches for 261 yards and one touchdown.
12/13/12 - WR Jon Baldwin continues to fall out of the Chiefs' offensive plan, as he was shut out playing against Cleveland. In the last seven games, Baldwin has played six times and has five catches totaling 68 yards. The shutout against the Browns was the second time in three games where he did not catch a pass.
11/28/12 - WR Jon Baldwin continues to struggle to find a place in the Chiefs offense. Over the last five games, Baldwin missed one game due to a concussion, did not catch a pass against Denver last week and in the three other games caught one pass in each for 7, 13 and 11 yards. In the past two months, Baldwin has six catches.
11/26/12 - WR Jon Baldwin, last season's first-round draft pick, continues to be almost invisible in the Chiefs offense. Against Denver he had just one pass thrown in his direction and that one did not connect. WR Jamar Newsome was elevated from the practice squad the day before the game and he had four passes thrown in his direction, catching one for 10 yards.
"He hasn't gotten as many opportunities as others," head coach Romeo Crennel said of Baldwin. "Jon has worked very hard during practice to improve and work within the offense. The quarterbacks seem to trust him."
