It is no secret that Jon Baldwin has underperformed since coming to the league in 2011. Baldwin was drafted in the first round by the previous regime and has not showed any signs of progress.
The Chiefs signed Donnie Avery, who had career highs in receptions and receiving yards last year with the Indianapolis Colts. But with the potential the Chiefs have, it would be nice to have a viable No. 2 receiver opposite of Dwayne Bowe or to step up in Bowe's absence, if needed.
When Bowe missed the last three games of the 2012 season, an already poor passing game declined even more as Brady Quinn struggled to move the ball through the air.
Possible solution: WR Brandon Lloyd
Brandon Lloyd, born in Kansas City and a Blue Springs high school graduate, has played for three different teams the past three years, trying to follow and stay in touch with Josh McDaniels. But since New England released him, Lloyd has to find a new home.
Giving Lloyd a chance would be a great move and it would excite fans to know that a local product is on the team. This would give Alex Smith another big target to work with this year to help the Chiefs dig themselves out of last place.
