The wide receiver market has been decimated by free agent signings to such an extent that Ted Ginn is one of the top five players still available at the position. Ginn’s value lies in his return ability and youth. He’ll only be 27 when the season starts, and there aren’t five better return specialists in football.
We previously passed along word that Ginn visited the Lions this past week.
Per Adam Caplan, Ginn also visited the Ravens.
Ginn has flamed out as a receiver largely because he’s small (5’11/180) and plays without physicality. He’s also a long strider and not quick enough in a short area to excel in the slot.
Ginn has five touchdown returns over the past three seasons, however. And that makes him an awfully attractive No. 4 or 5-type receiver in the NFL.
