The sun is shining brightly and it’s a beautiful day here in Kansas City. In other unrelated news, Jon Baldwin has been traded away.
That’s right folks, Kansas City was able to reach out to the San Francisco 49ers and trade Baldwin for wideout A.J. Jenkins, as reported by Reid Ferron of KCChiefs.com.
Jenkins has a stat line of zeroes so far in the NFL, but he did have a pretty good college career at Illinois. Baldwin, on the other-hand, has been the bane of many Chiefs fan’s existence. And no, we’re not talking about the villain who squared off with Batman.
We reached out on Twitter and asked you addicts to give your memories of Jon Baldwin. Here’s how you’ll remember the Chiefs’ much maligned wide receiver:
This is a good way to start things off, via Trent Thurmon:
@ArrowheadAddict wait… Who’s Jon Baldwin?

Baldin notched 41 receptions for 579 yards and just two touchdowns with Kansas City. Considering the hype he came in with, those are forgettable numbers.
This seems to be a trend:
@ArrowheadAddict Jon Baldwin was in Kansas City? I never knew he SHOWED UP.

Speaking of trends:
@ArrowheadAddict Wow that was a costly drop for Baldwin.
