  NFL | Two go unclaimed    Thu Aug 7, 05:50 PM

Free-agents QB Tyler Wilson (Titans) and WR Jonathan Baldwin (Lions) were unclaimed Thursday, Aug. 7, and are eligible to sign with any team.

Footballguys view: Baldwin has knee issues so nobody will touch him while Wilson has given being underwhelming a bad name. Our guess is Wilson heads to Canada and Baldwin to rehab.

  Lions | Jonathan Baldwin claim not official yet    Wed Aug 6, 02:57 AM

The Detroit Lions' claim of WR Jonathan Baldwin is not yet official as the team still needs to evaluate his medical situation, coach Jim Caldwell told reporters.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the Lions are able to grab Baldwin or not. It's been a while since they've had a first-round bust at wide receiver (Mike Williams, Charles Rogers).

  Lions | Claim Jon Baldwin    Mon Aug 4, 04:45 PM

The Detroit Lions claimed WR Jonathan Baldwin Monday, Aug. 4. Baldwin was released by the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Aug. 3.

Footballguys view: Baldwin is looking like a colossal bust despite his colossal gifts. He's got a long way to go just to make the Lions roster.

  49ers | Cut Jonathan Baldwin     Sun Aug 3, 06:23 PM

The San Francisco 49ers cut WR Jonathan Baldwin Sunday, Aug. 3.

Footballguys view: The 49ers only had Baldwin for a year and decided to move on from the 2011 first-round pick (Chiefs). Baldwin washed out with the Chiefs, so they decided to trade him for A.J. Jenkins - the 49ers first-round pick in 2012. Neither have lived up to their draft status, but at least Jenkins is still with the team. Let the Baldwin-to-Raiders speculation begin.

  49ers | Jonathan Baldwin could be cut    Fri Jan 31, 12:03 AM

The San Francisco 49ers may consider releasing WR Jonathan Baldwin this offseason.

Footballguys view: Baldwin has busted for both the Chiefs and the 49ers. He's big and fast, but his attitude makes Kenny Britt seem like Jerry Rice. Baldwin may be out of the league in the near future.

  49ers | Coach praises Jonathan Baldwin    Sat Sep 28, 09:38 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jonathan Baldwin got praise from head coach Jim Harbaugh for his competitiveness. "He's got a competitive heart," Harbaugh said.

Footballguys view: Baldwin had two catches for 19 yards on Thursday night. He's always had physical talent, and he's always said he wants to prove the doubters wrong. Coming out of college there were a few in the scouting community who questioned his dedication and focus. So far those doubters have been right as Baldwin has been a career underachiever.

  49ers | Jonathan Baldwin could get more time    Fri Sep 27, 06:24 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jonathan Baldwin could receive more playing time because of the injury to WR Quinton Patton (foot).

Footballguys view: The 49ers haven't found any sort of answer at WR2 since Michael Crabtree went down. They have been mentioned as a possible trade partner with Cleveland for Josh Gordon, who has Baldwin's elite physical tools, but actually knows how to convert them into production on the field.

  49ers | Jonathan Baldwin has two catches    Fri Sep 27, 04:09 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jonathan Baldwin had two catches for 19 yards in his first game of the season while WR Marlon Moore was a healthy inactive after having just one catch for six yards in the first three weeks. 'It was good to see him get out there and compete,' head coach Jim Harbaugh said. 'I've got a good feeling about him.' WR Kyle Williams did not have a single catch Thursday, Sept. 26.

  49ers | LaMichael James, Jonathan Baldwin active    Thu Sep 26, 08:15 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James (knee) and WR Jonathan Baldwin are both active for the first time this year in Week 4 against the St. Louis Rams Thursday, Sept. 26. James was being bothered by a knee injury and Baldwin was a healthy scratch the first three weeks.

Footballguys view: We expected James to get more reps this year but he hasn't been healthy. It will be hard to gauge how much of an impact he has until we've seen him play a few snaps. Until then he's someone you have to keep on the bench if you even want to hold a roster spot on him. Baldwin has as good a chance as anyone to produce some fantasy points in a wide receiver group which has been all Anquan Boldin "and friends." He's always been a talented player whose head seemed to get in his way. We'll see if Harbaugh can change that.

  49ers | Jonathan Baldwin could play    Tue Sep 24, 09:50 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jonathan Baldwin could make his debut with the team in Week 4.

  49ers | Jonathan Baldwin not likely to be active    Sun Sep 1, 08:22 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jonathan Baldwin is not expected to be active in Week 1, as he is expected to need to work his way into active through some very good practices. He is still learning the playbook after coming over from the Kansas City Chiefs in a preseason trade.

Footballguys view: That the 49ers would trade away AJ Jenkins for a player that is clearly far away from being able to help them shows how close they were to cutting the 2012 first-round pick this summer.

  49ers | Jonathan Baldwin expected to play    Wed Aug 21, 03:18 PM

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said WR Jonathan Baldwin is expected to receive some playing time during the team's third preseason game.

Footballguys view: It will be interesting to see how Baldwin performs with his new team. He was a disappointment with the Chiefs but has the size/speed combination to be a quality starter opposite Anquan Boldin. Perhaps this fresh start will help Baldwin kick his career into gear.

  49ers | Jonathan Baldwin not guaranteed spot     Mon Aug 19, 02:21 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jonathan Baldwin will have to compete with six other wide receivers for one or two roster spots during the rest of training camp.

Footballguys view: No real surprise here. Baldwin was a disappointment during his time with the Chiefs and he'll have to prove himself with his new team. 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is known for getting the most out of his players. Perhaps this is the wake up call that Baldwin needed to play up to his potential.

  49ers | Jonathan Baldwin acquired    Mon Aug 19, 12:23 PM

The San Francisco 49ers acquired WR Jonathan Baldwin from the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, Aug. 19, in exchange for WR A.J. Jenkins.

Footballguys view: It's a fresh start for Baldwin with the 49ers. He has the size/speed combination to be a quality player at the pro level but it just wasn't happening with the Chiefs. The 49ers are looking for additional help at the WR position since losing Michael Crabtree (Achilles') earlier this year. Baldwin will compete with guys like Kyle Williams, Austin Collie, and Ricardo Lockette for the WR2 spot opposite Anquan Boldin.

The Kansas City Chiefs acquired WR A.J. Jenkins from the San Francisco 49ers Monday, Aug. 19, in exchange for WR Jonathan Baldwin.

Footballguys view: Jenkins was a first-round pick for the 49ers in 2012 but failed to record a single catch as a rookie. He was disappointing in camp and suffered from lapses in concentration and too many dropped passes. He'll get a fresh start with the Chiefs here and has experience catching passes from QB Alex Smith from their time together with the 49ers.

  Chiefs | Donnie Avery likely the No. 2 WR    Thu Aug 15, 04:54 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Donnie Avery is likely to be the team's No. 2 receiver opposite WR Dwayne Bowe, but the team would like to see WR Jonathan Baldwin finally step up.

Footballguys view: Baldwin has been disappointing since he came into the league in 2011. He's got the size to make plays in the red zone and the speed to be a factor on downfield routes. Baldwin has been inconsistent as a pro and needs to improve his effort, route running, and concentration.

The Kansas City Chiefs released their first depth chart Sunday, Aug. 4, and WR Jonathan Baldwin is listed as a starter opposite WR Dwayne Bowe.

Footballguys view: Baldwin's hold on the WR2 job may be a tenuous one. He's competing with free agent addition Donnie Avery for that job. Baldwin has not been impressing according to camp reports out of KC, and may not be the right fit for the Andy Reid offense.

  Chiefs | Jonathan Baldwin injures hand    Sat Aug 3, 11:17 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jonathan Baldwin (hand) suffered a hand injury during practice Saturday, Aug. 3, but was able to continue practicing.

Footballguys view: Baldwin is already struggling to impress in camp as he competes for the starting job opposite Dwayne Bowe. An injury won't help his chances of winning the spot. He's battling with Donnie Avery for that job. Dexter McCluster and Devon Wylie are competing for playing time in the slot.
