Chiefs’ Reid calls Jon Baldwin a ‘tweener’

After re-signing Dwayne Bowe and acquiring Donnie Avery through free agency, the Chiefs appear to have their starting wide receivers. Between Dexter McCluster and Devon Wylie, the Chiefs seem to have their slot receivers.

There doesn’t look to be much of a role for Jon Baldwin. The former first-round draft pick had a fantastic offseason but turned into a huge disappointment during the regular season and now appears to be at the back of the line when it comes to playing time.

Andy Reid, ever sensitive to giving up on a player too quickly, doesn’t sound like he’s ready to move on from Baldwin.

“Baldwin is kind of a tweener.,’’ Reid said at the NFL’s annual owners meetings in Phoenix. “He does have good, long speed, not great long speed. He’s somebody that needs to continue to develop. That’s a position that you need time to develop in. We’ll see how he does.”
