Anybody want Ted Ginn Jr.?



Ginn Now that the Dolphins have acquired wide receiver Brandon Marshall, it looks like wide receiver Ted Ginn, Jr. should start asking friends if they have any boxes. It would appear he's expendable. A former first-round pick out of Ohio State, Ginn has skills, but his numbers have been up and down. He had 34 catches as a rookie and 56 in his second season. But last season, his third in the NFL, he dropped back to 38 catches. And as Yahoo Sports points out, his yards after catch has slipped each season down to a measly 1.3 in 2009. Of course, every time a wide receiver comes on the market, fans in these parts wonder if the Bucs should go get him seeing as how Tampa Bay could use a receiver. But is Ginn worth it? Depends of the price, of course. Ginn has elite speed, but his numbers have been shaky enough to make you scratch your head. He makes a lot of money, he's small and, perhaps most telling, teams don't seem to be burning up the telephone making calls to Miami to get him. Check that out on the Miami Herald Web site.
