Ted Ginn joins the Panthers on a one-year deal

Mar 21 2013 04:06 PM Cam2Ligit2Quit Carolina Panthers
Former 49ers wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers, ESPN reported Thursday, ending his three-year tenure in San Francisco.
Ginn had only two receptions in 2012 and ceded his kickoff-return duties to rookie LaMichael James late in the regular season, but he remained effective as a punt returner. He was 11th in the NFL in punt-return average (11.2 yards) after ranking fourth and third, respectively, the previous two seasons.
In the Super Bowl, Ginn's 32-yard third-quarter punt return set up a 20-yard touchdown drive in the midst of San Francisco's second-half rally.

Well in those I formations he will but he passing situations I believe they will relieve him of his duties. I definitely don't want Keuchly covering a tight end. The dude is smart but if it's not a double team, it will be the same scenario it has been the past recent years.


What are you talking about? Kuechly took on V-Jax and almost made a game changing play. It just so happened that Freeman made a perfect pass and all Luke could do is tackle Jackson and hope he'd drop the pass.

I think he did a fairly good job covering TEs this last season.

Okay. Give me a list of who you will be bringing in to replace them with our non existent salary cap space.

Playing Madden isn't the same as being a real world GM.


Let me guess, App State homer??? Right now we have Adams/Smith/Lafell/Pliares/Ginn/Bryant/Gettis/Edwards at WR, and we seem to be drafting one early this year. We don't need to replace them with ANYONE. We should only be carrying 6-7 into the regular season, which means 2 need to go, aka Armanti and Pilares more then likely. Maybe you're the one playing too much Madden, or just want to be the Jon Gruden of WRs.

Gettis - Pro's Good Rookie Season showed Promise
Con's Very Injury Prone

AE - Pro's When he has the ball he is an amazing talent in the open field
Con's He doesn't seem to get open enough to get the ball

Pilares - Pro's Hard runner and showed some flash in the KR game
Con's Slow and coming off injury

Adams - Pro's About the same as AE
Con's Fumblitis and was in dog house most of the season. Everyone Cringes when he touched the ball.

If you had to keep two I would Keep Gettis and Pilares


Dis bllsht of keepin dudes around for years that cant help you win is ovah!!!!

Gettis - Pro's Good Rookie Season showed Promise
Con's Very Injury Prone

it's been how long since his rookie year? i've lost interest. not sure anyone on the coaching staff has any either. until proven otherwise, one hit wonder.

AE - Pro's When he has the ball he is an amazing talent in the open field
Con's He doesn't seem to get open enough to get the ball

he had amazing talent in the open field in college. haven't seen any of that since he came here. i seriously doubt it will ever be seen.

Pilares - Pro's Hard runner and showed some flash in the KR game
Con's Slow and coming off injury

flash is being a bit generous. haven't seen it. hard runner? i'll give him that. beyond that nothing special.

Adams - Pro's About the same as AE
Con's Fumblitis and was in dog house most of the season. Everyone Cringes when he touched the ball.

rookie. want to see if he can do something next year. if not, move on.

If you had to keep two I would Keep Gettis and Pilares

wouldn't keep either one. i'm just not interested in either one at all. very easily replaced and upgraded.

truth be told, i'm not interested in any of them. at least lafell has shown he can make some tough catches and grew some as a receiver after his rookie year. i doubt he'll ever be anything more than solid. the rest of the guys....meh. it won't be hard to upgrade any of them and aside from curiousity i have in adams as to what he can do with a year under his belt i don't see any reason to hold on to them or try to find upgrades/replacements.
Ted is not a good route runner, which is what yiu need for a slot guy.

Ted is the type of guy ya just line up wide, and let him out run his guy.

Dis bllsht of keepin dudes around for years that cant help you win is ovah!!!!

produce or be replaced. that's the way it has to be. no more hanging on to hopes and dreams.

dwayne jarret, keary colbert, drew carter, david gettis...the list goes on. we've had pathetic attempts at trying to find a compliment to smitty and now it's come time to find his eventual replacement or at least build a commity that can handle the job if he's not around.

Now give me Booth and Branch and I'll be over joyed with this FA period.


Deion Branch?

i know htat's all i'm expecting from him as a receiver and that's fine with me.

Not saying it's a bad move, I'm just mad they didn't sign him last year.

sounds like ya just want to blame more hypothetical poo on hurney.

For my amusement, what was the thread title prior to being changed?


I believe it was 'Ted Ginn SIGN'

i know htat's all i'm expecting from him as a receiver and that's fine with me.

that is what we need, more than a slot guy.

And perhaps he'll grow into a better receiver with Cam and Steve.
That's what I don't understand why people are saying he could be improved with quarterback play. He still has a bad case of the dropsies.

Hey that type of insult is unnecessary. I am not an Armanti or App State fan.

If any two receivers are going to go it will be Gettis and Edwards. They contribute absolutely nothing.
The guy had 1 good Qb for 8 games.

Also that one good qb had Crabtree, Moss, amd frickin Vernon Davis.

I bet this guy turns into a solid 2 by end season.

I believe it was 'Ted Ginn SIGN'


LOL damn, that was amusing. thank you.
Good sign. See him being our 4th/5th receiver and returner

Also, we can finally cut AE now

Some have only been here for 1 or 2 years and some haven't really been given a opportunity. So let's not go over board with the cut this player and that player thing.

Unless there is some off the field poo between The FO and Gettis or he can't come back from this injury. Gettis is cheap to keep and has the ability to add more size and speed then any WR on this roster. He definitely wouldn't be at the top of my list of must get rid of player .

list of returners on the team who can't catch:

armanti edwards
ted ginn jr
kealoha pilares
joe adams


god fuging dammit. i just want a real receiver. a physical guy who can catch. just one. someone to compliment smitty and lafell.


shut the fug and take your cry baby ass somewhere else. I hate that there always has to be somebody complain over everything. This is not something that should be complained about. We just got one of the best returners in the league. We aren't asking him to be the #1 receiver. Get over it
Panthers have a need at KR/PR. Check.
Panthers have a need for speed at WR in a Coryell offense. Check

I dont' know if he can be a decent or good WR for us but I bet he's does and that's why he signed with us. A one year deal on a team that has a need at WR says it all. Otherwise he probably could have gotten a better deal somewhere else if he was just looking for KR duties.

Worse case, we got a really good KR/PR.
Best case, we got a really good KR/PR and someone with elite speed to stretch the field. With his speed and Cam's arm if all he can do is run a Go route it's a plus in my book.
