Jon Baldwin To Be More Involved?

Can I rise to the occasion Juan? Jon Baldwin was on a tear this Summer and looked like he had a shot at breaking out.  Well, the entire Chiefs offense has been in neutral for most of the season and their QB situation is a mess.  Still, the Chiefs need to see what they have in Baldwin for 2013 and beyond as Dwayne Bowe will most likely been gonesky.
