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.

TED GINN SIGN

one year deal... Gentleman Magic

Possibly worst thread title since Tommy Jone but good news nonetheless...

If were counting on him to be a weapon at receiver for us we have some serious issues, and fans are going to be fuming when he drops a crucial ball for us next year.


He'll be a strong returner. He'll contend with Gettis for the 4th WR spot.

That's what were looking at here guys.


Huddle logic: Sign one average depth receiver, cut all the rest.

And who's the phantom #3 receiver you've got in mind?

You'd think I'd eventually find something to be positive about, but I can't... Goodness.


I fixed your post.

No, sign one elite KR, cut the horde of wannabe KR/PR that are average at best and can't play WR, but have sucked up roster spots for years. I still want a 1st or 2nd round WR, but I'm happy with the signing. If some miracle happens, and Proehl/Smith can develop him into the top 10 pick he was projected as, we got one hell of a bargain.
Whoever we add with the intention of actually making a contribution to our receiving corp


Not like this signing that was done to give us a returner
Right now Pilares is the #3. Ginn most likely is #4 since Adams and Gettis are in Rivera's dog house. Bryant is an unknown. AE, I don't see him making it unless Rivera wants to cut Gettis or Adams.
Isnt it sad that Hurney led us here? To people ripping their tear filled eyes out of their screaming heads like a michael Jackson concert at the signing of a returner, and then getting so blatantly (and pitifully) defensive when reminded that that's all he is...


BUT I KNOW HIS NAME!!

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.

Ginn's PR average the last 3 years: 13.4, 12.3, 10.2
Ginn's KR average the last 3 years: 21.1, 27.6, 23.0

Our return game just got great


I think he had an injury last year which slowed him down, hopefully he can return to form this year in the return game.
Super Bowl. Hurney magic. Gettlenonsense. inb4 Tavon Austin.

Right now Pilares is the #3. Ginn most likely is #4

Problem is you need blocking to get those numbers.
Looking at the roster now, DT, OL, and WR are the 3 weaknesses. If we sign Boothe, DT and WR will be our top 2 draft picks I believe.

Hopefully we can get a #2 CB in FA, but I'm not holding my breath.

Ginn most likely is #4 since Adams and Gettis are in Rivera's dog house.

As if you are in RR's back pocket when he talks of Gettis and know what you are speaking of. I recall last year that RR can't wait to see Gettis come back healthy to add his speed to blow out the top of defenses with his speed.
lol at anyone who thinks Ginn is talented enough to be a no. 3 receiver in this league

i really hope proehl can turn this guy into an effective slot reciever. it could really make our offense explosive. i shall pray for this every night

I'd be happy if he can be effective running the post.

We have other guys that can play the slot.
Gettis' time could be up as well...

In addition to Armanti and Pilares as possibilities

Don't forget linebacker, because I am not so sure I want to see Beason or Davis trying to check the Grahams and Gonzo's of the league. Now that Godfrey is the fs, we need a linebacker that can man the tight ends in this league that have been ripping a hole in our defense for the past 5 years easily.

It's easy to forget where some of the other holes are until you see on game days that tight ends always end up carry the load when their teams are down and get those big 3rd down receptions and leave our defense with their tongues hanging out because they are dog tired. That's the main reason why Anderson was let go of, he couldn't hold his own against athletic tight ends. Ever wonder why he is still available? He's a liability in game winning situations.

Ummm Gettis was healthy at the end of last year and Rivera didn't play him. Gettis showed his frustration on the sidelines. Did you pay attention last year? I'm speaking in terms of what Rivera thinks. Not what I want. I want Gettis as #3, but Rivera doesn't think so.

Yea there's still a couple others but those are the most glaring

I will never believe that a guy who has made plays in this league and had semi-respectable seasons as a wide receiver will be off the field looking at Pilares lined up in the #3 spot. He isn't THAT damn bad.

And I don't think Pilares is either, but the guy has never proved consistent. Not in 3 years.

In addition to that....what are the odds Beason and Davis can both suit up for a full season? Not great.

Talented enough probably is a poor choice of words....

Good enough or consistent enough is probably better. Ginn has the raw talent.
And Keuchly will be covering TEs btw. That was his biggest strength when he was drafted.
