Ted Ginn Jr. Traded to San Fran

As reported by Adam Schefter the Miami Dolphins Traded Ted Ginn Jr. to the San Fransisco 49ers for a 5th round pick in the upcoming 2010 NFL Draft. It was known that Ginn was on the Trading block but many people assumed that once the Dolphins got Marshall that Ted Ginn would be a nice complement to him, seems that isn’t the case.

With the Dolphins having so many receivers they knew they had to get rid of some, Ted Ginn being the first. The locks to stay on the team are Marshall, Bess and Hartline. Everybody else could be traded or released at any time.

The Dolphins also could look to the Draft to get a Speedy wide out or kick returner. Brandon Banks and Trindon Holiday are known really for there speed but they don’t provide much to the passing game. Some other players are Dexter McCluster and Jacoby Ford. McCluster is projected to go 2nd round but if he slips to the Dolphins in the 3rd round don’t be surprised to see them snatch him up because they loved him so much at the senior bowl, but the Dolphins seem to love Jacoby Ford. They brought him in for a workout and believe he can be the receiver Ginn could never be and they like him as a returner as well.

I wish Ginn the best of luck in San Fran, and I wished it would of turned out better.

    Good luck Ted Ginn. I really would have liked to see one more season now that Ginn could relax and not carrry the weight of this #9 pick and #1 WR label. The fans were hard on Ginn despite the fact that he had nothing whatsoever to do with his slot in the 2007 draft. He showed his break away ability and played a HUGE role in our defeating of the Jets last year. It would have been interesting to see what he could have done with BM now #1.

    I wish they would have gave him one more shot opposite Marshall, but alas. I wish him luck, and I’ll never forget what he did against the Jets last year.

    Aah…shucks. I really would’ve liked the ‘Phins to have given him another chance. But, it was a good deal considering Santonio Holmes was had for the same price :-/

    man. i just got his jersey last offseason. and i thought i would be able to keep it since he was our jet killer and marshall would have helped him alot.

    Oh well.i can still wear it with pride and say I got it after his good year.

    • 2madison9

      Aah..same here. EXACT SAME! The orange alternate. WHY??!! Lol

  • jmoneilthe2

    It’s about time they got rid of him. See ya…

  • squidmd

    Not disappointed they traded Ginn, just wish they could have got more or packaged him with another player for a higher pick.

    I just do not see why the Dolphins had to do this. Anybody remember when we were complaining during the Jimmy Johnson days that we had no deep threat and no we have no speed on the outside. Yeah , they can still get Spiller but at the expense of repairing our terrible defense. I just think there was no reason to make this move. What’s the logic behind it?

    • 2madison9

      Seriously?? Logic?? Ginny boy just wasn’t productive in his role as a Dolphin IMO. I mean..the man COULDN’T CATCH!!! LOL. C’mon now. I REALLY thought Ginn was on the up and up after his ’08 campaign but, he proved me wrong. It’s time to move forward. As much as I liked Ginn it had to be done. I’m sure the FO didn’t like the idea of him receiving #9 overall dollars to just do well at returning kicks. Signing Marshall was really a sign of this to come. Despite not having the deep threat. Hey, that just mat get addressed in the draft. We’ll see.

    GOOD! Now the Dolphins Can Draft WR/KR Jacoby Ford in the 5th Round ! Who’s faster than Ginn, o and he has a big Upside as a Wide Receiver HE CAN CATCH THE BALL . Not hand it to Darren Sharper lol GO PHINS!!
