We can play connect the dots when it comes to the trade that sent Chiefs receiver Jon Baldwin to the 49ers for receiver A.J. Jenkins, but that matters very little now. Kansas City has a talented young man who is going to get an opportunity to show his late bloomer college status wasn’t a fluke.

Andy Reid and John Dorsey aren’t making a mistake getting rid of him. They’re just trying to get the best 53 possible. The 49ers...
