Louis Riddick reported on ESPN’s NFL Insiders program that the Kansas City Chiefs are “very excited about” wide receiver A.J. Jenkins heading into next season, per Rotoworld.com.
Riddick worked in Philadelphia’s front office alongside much of Kansas City’s current coaching staff, so he has notable ties. Acquired from the 49ers in exchange for Jon Baldwin last August, Jenkins showed some flashes in his first season with the Chiefs, posting a 3-67 line in Week 17 and catching a 27-yard pass in K.C.’s playoff loss. Still only 24 years old, there’s an outside chance Jenkins could push to start opposite Dwayne Bowe in 2014.
