Panthers agreed to terms with KR/WR Ted Ginn on a two-year, $4.2 million deal.
Cut by Arizona last month, Ginn was free to sign immediately. Ginn spent the 2013 season in Carolina, logging 36 catches and a career-high five touchdowns while showing some deep-ball chemistry with Cam Newton. He'll replace Philly Brown as the Panthers' new primary kick returner and will fill a situational deep-threat role. He may even have to serve as Newton's No. 3 wideout. Mar 9 - 9:17 AM

Free agent KR/WR Ted Ginn visited the Titans on Tuesday.

He'll visit the 49ers on Wednesday. Ginn played for San Francisco from 2010-2012, and the Niners are in dire need of a return man. The Titans are in the same boat with Leon Washington a free agent. Ginn isn't a threat as a receiver.
Mar 3 - 9:40 PM

The Panthers are interested in free agent WR/KR Ted Ginn.

Ginn had a renaissance year of sorts in 2013 with Carolina, before cashing in with Arizona last offseason. He would not solve the Panthers' No. 2 receiver woes, but could chip in as a sub-package wideout and special teamer.

The Browns need a return specialist and ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi suggests free agent Ted Ginn could fill that role.

The Browns finished a dismal 28th in kick return average last season. They also have a need at wideout with Josh Gordon facing a year-long suspension. The fact Ginn went to high school in Cleveland and attended Ohio State only strengthens the connection. Expect Ginn to give the Browns serious consideration.

Cardinals released WR Ted Ginn.

The Cardinals will eat $1.5 million in dead money, but they save $2.5 million by getting Ginn off the books, so it's a net gain. The scouting report on Ginn hasn't changed much throughout his career. He continues to be a big play threat on special teams (seven career return touchdowns) and a mediocre receiver. Ginn has played for four teams since entering the league in 2007.
Feb 23 - 5:02 PM

Ted Ginn caught four passes for 61 yards in Sunday's Week 13 loss at Atlanta.

With Larry Fitzgerald (knee) sidelined, Ginn set season-highs across the board. It's not something to count on from the return man going forward. He's still behind Michael Floyd, John Brown and Jaron Brown.

Ted Ginn caught 2-of-2 targets for 42 yards in Arizona's Week 9 win over the Cowboys.

In the first season of a three-year, $9.75 million deal, Ginn now has six catches at the midway point. He doesn't figure to get any more involved down the stretch.

Ted Ginn caught 1-of-3 targets for eight yards in Arizona's Week 3 win over the 49ers, adding a four-yard rush and 10-yard pass.

Ginn completed a 10-yard pass to Michael Floyd in the fourth quarter, but the trick play was well defended. Playing second fiddle to John Brown as the Cardinals' designated deep threat, Ginn has only six targets through three games.

Ted Ginn was held without a catch on one target in Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Ginn has fallen behind impressive third-round rookie John Brown for No. 3 receiver duties. He'll focus strictly on returns this season.

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.

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.
Thu, Feb 27, 2014 07:01:00 PM

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.
