Free agent WR Jon Baldwin worked out for the Giants on Tuesday.

It's the first we've heard of the 2011 first-rounder since he was waived by the Lions in early August. Baldwin appeared in seven games for the 49ers last season, but caught only three passes. He's just about washed out of the NFL.

Lions waived WR Jon Baldwin.

Baldwin failed his physical after being claimed off waivers from the 49ers on Monday. He's battling a left knee issue. With not much camp left, the Lions would rather go with the players who have been there all summer. Baldwin's injury isn't believed to be serious, but he could be sidelined a couple weeks.

Jon Baldwin is battling a knee issue, and his waiver claim from the Lions is "on hold."

Baldwin missed some reps in practice with the 49ers when camp opened due to discomfort in his left knee. He's yet to pass his physical for the Lions. GM Martin Mayhew is still reviewing the medicals and will make a decision shortly.

Lions claimed WR Jon Baldwin off waivers from the 49ers.

Baldwin is only 25 years old and has legitimately has the skill set of a No. 1 NFL wide receiver, but he has never demonstrated on- or off-field dedication to the sport. He keeps getting chances based entirely on potential. If Jim Harbaugh couldn't motivate Baldwin, we strongly doubt Jim Caldwell will.

49ers waived WR Jon Baldwin.

They claimed former Cowboys UDFA WR L'Damian Washington off waivers in a corresponding move. Per beat writer Matt Barrows, Baldwin "had not looked good. At all" in Niners camp. The Chiefs appear to have "won" last year's Baldwin-A.J. Jenkins trade, although we suspect neither player will pan out. Baldwin, 25, is supremely athletically gifted with great size, but has every symptom of a career underachiever, and ultimately a colossal draft bust.

ESPN 49ers reporter Bill Williamson believes Jon Baldwin conceivably could be converted to tight end, but says the former first-round pick has "virtually no chance" to make the roster either way.

The tight end comment is just idle speculation. At 6'4/230, Baldwin would be on the small side for tight ends, and hasn't played the position since high school. The important takeaway is Baldwin's roster spot is in grave danger despite taking a pay cut. Baldwin looks to be nearing the end of his NFL road.

49ers signed WR Jon Baldwin to a restructured contract.

This should take Baldwin out of the "candidate for release" category. His 2014 base salary has been reduced from $1.4 million to $645,000. He can make $755,000 back by hitting these unlikely incentives: Play on 80 percent of the snaps, catch 65 passes and surpass 800 yards. Baldwin would battle Quinton Patton for No. 2 duties if free agent Anquan Boldin isn't re-signed.

CSN Bay Area considers 49ers WR Jon Baldwin a candidate for release.

Baldwin is due a non-guaranteed $1.4 million in salary and bonuses for 2014. Part of the reason the 49ers swapped former first-round pick A.J. Jenkins for Baldwin was because of the aforementioned reason; Jenkins had two years left of guaranteed money at the time of the deal. We wouldn't expect the 49ers to give up on Baldwin before training camp, but he's going to have to earn his spot. Baldwin caught just three passes for 28 yards in seven games with San Fran.

49ers WR Jon Baldwin wasn't active after Week 12 this season.

In all, Baldwin dressed seven times, making three catches for 28 yards. The 2011 first-round bust did nothing to distinguish himself for a club that was thin at receiver all season. Looking like a lost cause, Baldwin will have to show major signs of progress in camp to keep his roster spot.
Sun, Jan 19, 2014 11:40:00 PM

Jon Baldwin (illness) is inactive for Week 8 against the Jaguars.

The Niners are otherwise healthy. Their Week 8 inactives in addition to Baldwin are QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, WR Quinton Patton, RB LaMichael James, CB Nnamdi Asomugha, LB Jermaine Cunningham, and G Joe Looney.
Sun, Oct 27, 2013 11:40:00 AM

Jon Baldwin (illness) is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Baldwin was limited in practice again Friday and will be a game-time decision. With Mario Manningham (knee, PUP) still not ready to return, he'll remain the No. 3 receiver if active this week.
Fri, Oct 25, 2013 06:13:00 PM

Jon Baldwin was held without a catch in Week 7 against Tennessee.

Baldwin wasn't even targeted as he played behind Kyle Williams outside. He can be dropped in re-draft leagues with Mario Manningham (knee) close to returning.
Sun, Oct 20, 2013 08:48:00 PM

Jon Baldwin (illness) is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Titans.

Baldwin was demoted back into a rotational player in Week 6, coming off the bench behind Kyle Williams to catch one ball for nine yards. Baldwin can be dropped in 14- and 16-team leagues with Mario Manningham coming back soon.
Fri, Oct 18, 2013 05:01:00 PM

Jon Baldwin caught just one pass for nine yards in Week 6 versus Arizona.

Baldwin was targeted just twice on the afternoon. There just aren't enough footballs to go around to feed more than one or two pass catchers in the Niners' offense. We're skeptical Baldwin will ever hold fantasy value in 2013.
