Cardinals agreed to terms with WR/KR Ted Ginn, formerly of the Panthers, on a three-year, $9.75 million contract.
Coming off a career year, Ginn will be a deep-ball specialist for vertically-obsessed coach Bruce Arians, and serve as a return man. Shutdown CB Patrick Peterson was surprisingly ineffective on punt returns in 2013, and doesn't return kicks. Ginn could do both in the desert. With Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd ahead of him on the depth chart, Ginn won't be any sort of a fantasy consideration, but will get ample opportunity to be a play-maker. Mar 13 - 5:36 PM

Free agent WR/KR Ted Ginn is meeting with the Cardinals Thursday.

It's a very intriguing fit. Bruce Arians is a master at getting his wideouts open and they have a hole at the No. 3 spot after losing Andre Roberts. The speedy Ginn would also provide a boost to a return unit that ranked 31st in kickoff return average last year, while stretching defenses in a situational deep threat role.

The Giants are reportedly pursuing free agent WR/KR Ted Ginn.

After missing out on Jacoby Jones, the Giants are turning their attention to a similar player as they try to upgrade their return game. Ginn won't be cheap, however, He showed well when given opportunities as a wideout last year, giving him extra value to a team like the Panthers or Bucs.

Free agent Ted Ginn is visiting the Bucs.

As is ex-Pats special teamer Dane Fletcher. With the Bucs loading up on veteran talent, Ginn would be a deep threat as a No. 3/4 receiver. The Bucs have also been linked to Steve Smith.

The Charlotte Observer reports the Panthers hope to re-sign free agent Ted Ginn.

The former first-round bust is coming off a career year, and was Cam Newton's most reliable deep threat last season. Ginn's "career year" still consisted of just 36 catches for 556 yards and five touchdowns, but wanting to re-sign him shouldn't elicit the snickers it would have in the past. Two months shy of his 29th birthday, Ginn still has speed to burn.

Following Sunday's loss, Cam Newton said the 49ers were paying more "attention" to Ted Ginn than any other Panthers receiver.

Ginn's agent should take this quote with him to upcoming free agency negotiations. The former bust of a first-round pick by the Dolphins quietly turned into a legit playmaker as a receiver this season, catching 36 passes for 556 yards with a career-high five touchdowns. With Steve Smith slowing down and Brandon LaFell heading for free agency as well, the Panthers should make an effort to bring back Ginn.

Ted Ginn caught four passes for 104 yards in Carolina's Week 19 playoff loss to San Francisco.

Ginn's first reception went for 14 yards down the right sideline in the first quarter. He also chipped in a 22-yard punt return early in the second, and a 17-yard catch in the fourth. The bulk of Ginn's yardage came on a meaningless 59-yard reception late in the fourth quarter with the game already wrapped up. One of rookie GM Dave Gettleman's prize 2013 signings, Ginn is now eligible for unrestricted free agency after arguably his best all-around NFL season. He should get a multi-year deal with some guaranteed money.

Ted Ginn caught two passes for 16 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win at Atlanta.

Ginn started in place of Steve Smith (knee) and scored on a goal-line pick play, but saw just five targets and wasn't close to any chunk gains. He'll remain a true weapon on returns and in the screen game in the playoffs. Ginn, whose raw speed and improved skill set was underutilized by the Panthers all year, finishes the regular season with 36 catches for 566 yards and five touchdowns on a meager 68 targets.

Ted Ginn will start against the Falcons in Week 17.

Steve Smith is nursing a sprained PCL, opening a big opportunity for the improved Ginn. The Panthers need a win to lock up the NFC South and they're facing a secondary that ranks 29th in yards per pass attempt allowed. The speedy Ginn figures to get at least a few chances on quick screens, giving him WR4 upside in Week 17.

Ted Ginn caught two passes for 66 yards in Carolina's Week 16 win over the Saints.

The yards were Ginn's most in nine games, and second most of the season. The return man enters Week 17 with 550 receiving yards, already his highest total since 2008.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 06:08:00 PM

Ted Ginn had one catch for 10 yards in Week 15 against the Jets.

He added one carry for 14 yards on the Panthers' first drive of the third quarter. Ginn was a non-factor in the passing game and finished with just one target. He won't be a fantasy option in Week 16 against the Saints.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 09:25:00 PM

Ted Ginn caught two passes for five yards in Week 14 against the Saints.

He was targeted five times in the passing game. Ginn is the Panthers' best deep threat, but hasn't had more than 47 receiving yards since Week 8. He won't be on the fantasy radar even in a plus matchup next week with the Jets.
Mon, Dec 9, 2013 01:42:00 AM

Ted Ginn caught two passes for 47 yards and a touchdown in Carolina's Week 13 win over the Bucs.

Ginn displayed some fancy footwork near the sideline on his 36-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Ginn is good for a weekly deep bomb or two, but it's not a recipe for fantasy reliability. The return specialist posing as a No. 3 receiver is on pace for a 37/625/5 line.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 06:02:00 PM

Ted Ginn caught three passes for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win at Miami.

Ginn was atrocious on offense. He saw 10 targets, failing to make anyone miss in the screen game and dropping a bomb from Cam Newton that would have gone for a touchdown. It reminded the Miami fans why they let the No. 9 overall pick in the 2007 draft go. Ginn isn't good enough to be worth a roster spot in fantasy leagues even though the Panthers are trying to manufacture the speedster touches.

Ted Ginn caught a 25-yard touchdown in Week 11 against the Patriots.

It was the biggest catch of the night, though. Ginn caught a short pass near the 15-yard line on the final drive. He made Kyle Arrington miss before breezing past another two defenders on his way to the left pylon for the game-winning score with 59 seconds left on the clock to put the Panthers up 24-20. Ginn has just four catches in his last three games and isn't worth a fantasy roster spot.
