49ers waive former Chiefs first-round pick WR Jon Baldwin
Receiver Jon Baldwin has been cast off two teams in the first three years of his career.
Jon Baldwin, the No. 26 overall pick by the Chiefs in 2011, was waived by the 49ers on Sunday. And if he couldn't make it through the first two weeks of an NFL training camp without getting cut, you have to wonder if he really has a place in the NFL at this point in his career.
Baldwin combined for 41 catches and two touchdowns in 26 games during his only two seasons in Kansas City, and in August 2013, the disgruntled Baldwin was traded to the 49ers for former first-round San Francisco pick A.J. Jenkins.
But Baldwin didn't impress with the 49ers in 2013, making three catches for 28 yards in seven games, and apparently, he was having a subpar training camp in 2014.
Baldwin was released in order to make room for undrafted free-agent receiver L'Damian Washington, who was released by Dallas last week.
It should be telling, then, that the 49ers removed Baldwin from the roster in order to replace him with a Cowboys castoff who has no NFL experience and who wasn't thought of highly enough to be drafted.
