Baldwin has been a bust in his first three NFL seasons since being drafted in the first round by the Kansas City Chiefs, and he will have to a fight for a roster spot in Detroit.
If everything goes well for him, Baldwin may win the No. 3 receiver job behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. However, the former Pitt receiver has never caught more than 21 passes in a single season, and he only caught three in 2013.
