Cardinals reel in Ted Ginn Jr. with a three-year deal

It took Ted Ginn Jr. some time to establish himself as an actual wide receiver in the NFL.

But it didn’t take him long to find a new job.

The Cardinals just announced they reached a three-year contract with the former Panthers wide receiver.

Ginn scored five touchdown on offense for the Panthers last year, or one fewer than the former first-rounder had scored in his first six seasons in the league.

He’s also continued to be a threat as a return man, and with the Cardinals, there’s no pressure on him to be more than a third option and a special-teamer.

    Man, he’s bounced around a lot. Still looks for the sidelines and is afraid of contact…. but a jet killer for sure.

    I thought he would have been a good fit with the Bears, but the Cardinals are reeling in the NFC West.

    I’m sure he will relish playing the niners twice a year.

    Way to go Steve Keim! All you posters that blast the Cardinals for being cheap…get over yourself! It’s a new day with Keim as GM and Michael Bidwill holding the purse strings. Keim didn’t over pay for Dansby, knowing he has Kevin Minter waiting in the wings. Keim then used the extra caps space from letting Dansby walk to sign Valdheer at LT, John Carlson at TE, re-sign key free agents like Matt Shaughnessy, and now sign a true speed threat like Ginn. This allows the Cardinals to stretch the field which they couldn’t do last year, and Ginn is a huge upgrade as a kick/punt returner.

    Now Keim will zero in on signing Cromartie. The Cardinals get that done and their already top 5 defense just got better!

    I saw the guy drop many passes last year but he also did make some plays

    Did they sign the family too?

    THANK GOD Peterson doesn’t have to return punts anymore.

  10. purpleguy says: Mar 13, 2014 6:29 PM

    Always like him better as a returner.

    Heres to watching Ginn run a punt and kick off return for a TD in one game against the Seahawks again!

    Does cam newton have anyone left to throw to?

  13. MostlyRight says: Mar 13, 2014 7:01 PM

    Cards don’t need him as a #1 or 2 WR. They are killing this FA.

  14. luz56 says: Mar 13, 2014 7:02 PM

    Great signing for those who really understand football… He’s our #3 guy that can stretch the field.. Can’t double team Fitz or Floyd… We have a TE that can catch…improved OL… All or nothing this year

    And in related news, the Carolina Panthers just announced that they will be holding tryouts for the Wide Receiver position. All able bodied men in and around the Charlotte/Mecklenburg area are welcome.

    WHAT THE HELL is going on in Carolina??

  17. fordmandalay says: Mar 13, 2014 7:25 PM

    I do believe the Cards will be a dangerous team this year, Palmer might have one last hurrah.

    I’ve seen over 50 college and pro games in my life so far, and Ted Ginn is THE fastest football player my eyes have ever seen.
    Dude just has another gear.
    GREAT pick-up, AZ!

  19. badoglick says: Mar 13, 2014 11:44 PM

    I think with Palmer’s still relatively strong arm strength and Ginn’s speed they’ll have potential to make a few big plays on offense. I’m sure they’ll frustrate at times, too.

    But on the flip side, Carolina was already hurting for receivers. What is their plan, draft one in every single round of the draft and hope a small group of them sticks? They absolutely have to replace one of them with another receiver in free agency. There’s a plethora available, the prices are alright. They gotta do something.

    Cards trying to be first home team to win Super Bowl!

  21. mdcards4life says: Mar 14, 2014 8:29 AM

    solid signing to stretch the field, now if only Carson Palmer doesn’t under throw those deep passes as he did last season. i believe with a strong off season workout he can back to form. im excited to see the possibility of what this offense can do given the time in the poket now with our newly LT set. I’m enjoying what GM Kiem has done thus far in free agency. now lets get Antonio Cromartie done.
