Yesterday on 610 Sports I talked Jon Baldwin with Danny Parkins and Carrington Harrison. I made the argument that the narrative with Baldwin is starting to change as he continues to say very little and put up impressive catches on a seemingly daily basis at KC Chiefs training camp.
Parkins interviewed Baldwin after yesterday's practice talking about the 1:30 a.m. workout video, practicing circus catches, his best catch and why he's not on Twitter any more, among other things.
I jotted down a few highlights of the interview and posted it below. 610Sports.com should podcast the interview soon as well.
"I just did it just because...just because I wanted to do it, to show the fans I was working hard and looking forward to the upcoming season."
Baldwin noted that the fans usually only get to see the players during training and at times during the season, so he wanted to let the fans know he was working hard to prepare for the season.
Does he practice those circus catches?
"To give you an example, you think about golfers. Goflers enjoy their time, they're not just practicing driving, shooting shots out of the sand, so I try to practice the hard catches and the catches that seem routine so when it comes time to do that it doesn't seem as hard."
