Chiefs GM on Jon Baldwin-A.J. Jenkins trade: 'Beneficial to all parties involved'

USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City Chiefs GM John Dorsey was quoted as he confirmed the Jon Baldwin-A.J. Jenkins trade between the Chiefs and 49ers.

It's officially official. Jon Baldwin is a 49er and A.J. Jenkins is a Chief. Just as quickly as the initial reports came out that the 49ers and Chiefs trade was going down, the Chiefs confirmed the move via a statement from general manager John Dorsey.

The statement reads:

"We felt like this trade was beneficial for all parties involved," Chiefs General Manager John Dorsey said. "A.J. is a talented individual with a skillset that we feel can add value to our football team. Jon Baldwin is a hardworking player and a professional. We wish him nothing but the best moving forward."

Point blank: The Chiefs thought Jenkins, a 2012 first round pick, could help them more than Jon Baldwin, a 2011 first round pick, could this season. That's really what it comes down to.
