Santonio Holmes and Ted Ginn have taken different career paths since playing together at Ohio State, but they cost the same price this week.
The Dolphins will receive San Francisco’s fifth-round pick in exchange for Ginn, according to ESPN’s Mike Sando.
We think it’s a fair deal for both sides, even if Ginn isn’t half the player Holmes is. (This illustrates again how desperate the Steelers were to dump Holmes.)
San Francisco doesn’t need to draft a return specialist, and they added speed to a receiver corps that could use it. Josh Morgan, more of a physical wideout, is likely to keep his starting job across from Michael Crabtree, according to Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat.
Ginn should compete with Brandon Jones and Jason Hill for the No. 3 receiver job, a role he’s suited for. Ginn probably wouldn’t be seen as a bust if he was evaluated properly coming out of college and simply just used that way from day one.
