Kansas City Chiefs rookie Jonathan Baldwin was one of eleven rookies that made the trip to honor veterans for Armed Forces Day. ProPlayerInsiders was there to chronicle the day.
West Los Angeles Medical Center was the location where the players went room to room to visit and talk with the veterans, shake hands and sign footballs and hats as a small token of appreciation for the people who have protected our country.
”It means a lot to us to come over here and show our appreciation and say thanks to these people.” Jonathan Baldwin said.
I don’t want to start sounding like a broken record, but there is little Baldwin can do at this point to put questions about his character to rest. Not that there is EVER a bad time to visit people that have bravely served our country, however the cynical among us could discount this sort of trip if the entire first-round (or even the majority) were there. Instead, Baldwin was one of just eleven out of the entire rookie class to take the time.
We’ll need to see him keep his focus on the football field and in the locker room to completely remove the “diva” label, but until the owners allow him to do that, we can only judge him on his off the field actions and he couldn’t get higher grades there so far.
