49ers claim WR Washington from Cowboys, waive Baldwin

The San Francisco 49ers claimed wire receiver L'Damian Washington off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys and waived wide receiver Jon Baldwin, the team announced Sunday.

The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Washington was waived by the Cowboys on Saturday after signing with the club as a free agent.

Washington played collegiately at the University of Missouri, where he recorded 100 receptions for 1,735 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Baldwin was acquired in a trade from the Kansas City Chiefs last August.
