The Niners announced Sunday they waived Baldwin after less than a year with the team. In a corresponding move, San Francisco claimed wide receiver L'Damian Washington off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys.
Baldwin, 24, took a substantial pay cut in February in hopes of sticking in San Francisco. Multiple Niners beat reporters had noted that Baldwin hasn't looked good this summer -- at all.
It's telling that Baldwin was cut before the Niners played a preseason game. He could struggle to latch on to another team this summer.
