Earlier this morning, former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Eddie Kennison went on 610 Sports with Bob Fescoe and Josh Klinger and had some things to say about Jonathan Baldwin. Kennison said Baldwin is who Dwayne Bowe used to be.

"[Baldwin] comes in as a rookie and thinks his poop doesn't stink," Kennison said. "And I don't know Jonathan. He came in with a lot of confidence and had some high expectations that he didn't meet so he's a guy that just needs to settle down a little bit, get in and really understand that he needs to be a professional on and off the field. It doesn't have to be the flashy stuff, all that extra stuff. Just be a solid pro and be the guy the organization needs to be."

I was in the middle of writing a post wondering, um, why Kennison would even bring something like that up considering virtually all the stories about Baldwin lately have been positive. What irked me even more is that right after Kennison criticized him, he said he doesn't even know him.

Shortly after Kennison said that on 610 Sports, Baldwin tweeted: "It don't matter what you do in life somebody will always find a way to hate." (For the record, Baldwin later tweeted that he wasn't responding to Kennison's words.)

But give it up for Kennison for recognizing he was in the wrong and apologizing to Baldwin via Twitter: "hey bro I humbly apologize for the words I said this morning. I don't know you personally but would like for us to catch up."
