What's got Andy Reid excited?

Published Add your comment

The Kansas City Chiefs made a trade with the San Francisco 49ers during the season to swap one non-playing wide receiver for another.

The Chiefs shipped Jonathan Baldwin off to San Francisco, while the 49ers unloaded former first-round pick A.J. Jenkins to the Chiefs.

Kansas feel they got an absolute steal out of the trade.

Third year player Jenkins had some positive flashes after joining the Chiefs, and ESPN’s Louis Riddick said on NFL Insiders that Kansas City is “very excited about” the wide receiver entering the offseason.

With Alex Smith now the settled starter at the Arrowhead, Andy Reid and his staff are looking to change up their receiving corp and the former Illinois man could be lining up as number two to Dwayne Bowe. 

Jenkins measures in at six foot tall and a strong 200 pounds, enough to handle himself. At the combine Jenkins posted a speedy time of 4.39 in the 40.

He was used sparingly in the season but finished the year with an average reception of 16.3 yards, more than enough to get coach Reid excited.
