Jon Baldwin may be on his last straw with the Chiefs. at 6 foot 4 and 228 pounds, Baldwin has the size and speed you would look for in an elite downfield threat. He's shown that potential on far too rare of occasion however, and has struggled mightily in developing his route running ability. Baldwin at times looks more interested in making a circus catch that securing the football and rarely finds himself with separation from the defensive back. In fairness to Baldwin, it's difficult to evaluate any young receiver in a situation as tumultuous as the Chiefs' passing game has been in the last two seasons. In 2013 he's been given all the tools to deliver on his promise, and he'll need to show it.

2012 Game Summaries
Week 2 - Baldwin was worked in more than he was last week, but for the most part, he and Matt Cassel could not hook up. He had a downfield catch inside the five during garbage time, but until Matt Cassel picks it up, Baldwin won't be worth owning in typical leagues.
Week 3 - Baldwin’s height and athleticism came in handy as he made two leaping grabs and nearly an incredible one handed grab in the back of the end zone. An extended absence for Dexter McCluster could mean a lot more Jon Baldwin.
Week 4 - Baldwin had a solid game, and his role in the offense appears to be increasing weekly. He was targeted on a deep ball early on where he appeared to have a step on his defender, but the ball was well overthrown. He did turn in a nice pickup over the middle on a 25-yard quick slant for a key gain.
Week 5 - Baldwin’s 26 yard grab showed the type of athletic ability the Chiefs have been waiting more than a season to see. He almost made another even more impressive catch down the right sideline but couldn’t haul it in with one hand.
Week 6 - Baldwin’s two catches both came on short slants, but he nearly made an outstanding one handed grab on a back shoulder throw down the left sideline.
Week 9 - With the problems the Chiefs have experienced moving the ball down the field, it’s curious why Baldwin wouldn’t be more involved. His first catch didn’t come until very late in the third quarter, and it was a simple 13-yard catch that wasn’t very far down the field.
Week 10 - Baldwin caught his first pass on a deep curl against Keenan Lewis for a first down. He had Cassel's biggest target of the day, when he ran a very deep post route against Ike Taylor, but couldn't hold onto the ball as Taylor put his hand in to disrupt his attempted catch.
Week 13 - Jonathan Baldwin executed a nice curl and go route against rookie CB Josh Norman, whose feet stopped, allowing Baldwin to run by him for a 37-yard completion. Later, Baldwin became the target in the red zone for Quinn, converting a quick slant into a score as he beat Norman once again.
Week 15 - Jonathan Baldwin did not pull his weight in this contest; he looked apathetic with his route-running and downfield blocking and had no desire when Quinn lofted passes up for him to attack. He was often the favorite to reel the pass in, but he half-heartedly swung his arms at them, more often than not. In a receiving corps devoid of playmakers, Baldwin was the biggest disappointment and failed to register a catch.
Week 16 - Baldwin's first reception went for 57 yards and came early in the first quarter. When the Colts blitzed, Baldwin ran a slant as the cornerback covering him fell down. That gave Baldwin an easy reception before he sprinted past the deep safety down the left sideline. Baldwin's second and final reception came early in the third quarter when he caught a curl route against tight coverage.
