WR Ted Ginn - Arizona Cardinals
|5-11, 185||Born: 4-12-1985||College: Ohio State||Drafted: Round 1, pick 9|
The addition of the return specialist made it easy for the Cardinals to let go of former kick returner Javier Arenas.
The 2013 injury to Tyrann Mathieu left Arizona wary of exposing their defensive starters to injuries in the return game. With Ginn in the fold, Patrick Peterson's days as a returner are likely to be over, or severely limited.
SummaryHeading into his eighth year in the league, Ted Ginn joins his fourth NFL team, landing in Arizona to take over the slot position vacated by Andre Roberts. Ginn has top-notch speed and is a talented runner in the open field, but those qualities have generally served him better as a return man than as a wide receiver thus far in his career. Ginn did become an important part of the Panthers' offense last season, however, and may be finding his groove as a receiver. Andre Roberts had some big games on occasion as the Cardinals' third receiver, and Ginn may have some as well. The problem is that any big games are likely to be significantly outnumbered by duds, making Ginn an unattractive fantasy prospect even as a flex option. Take a flyer on him at the end of the draft if you like, but don't expect him to crack your starting lineup. (May 28)

Latest NewsCardinals | Receiver hierarchy developing (Tue Jul 15, 10:24 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR Ted Ginn Jr. will be the team's No. 3 receiver this year and WR John Brown should be the No. 4 receiver, according to ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss. Weinfuss said WR Walter Powell looks like the frontrunner for the No. 5 spot, but WR Dan Buckner and WR Brittan Golden could win the job in camp. Our View: The two players to watch here are Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. However, dynasty owners need to add John Brown. The rookie from Pittsburgh State has been a standout player this offseason, and there's more than a little T.Y. Hilton to his game. His speed and ball-tracking ability will come in handy in a Bruce Arians system. Brown could surpass the more experienced Ginn at some point this season.
