I received word from one of my sources that WR Ted Ginn Jr. will not be re-signed when free-agency begins on March 12. Ginn, who has been a huge disappointment since being drafted 9th overall in the 2007 NFL Draft, has been nothing more than a return specialist. In 2012, Ginn only recorded one receiving yard for the year. That’s right, one yard! Not good if you ask me, thus making him dispensable. In addition, RB LaMichael James had been primarily fielding kickoff duties further downgrading Ginn’s value.

In 2010, the Miami Dolphins gave up on the once promising player and traded him to the San Francisco 49ers for a fifth-round draft choice, which ended up being Nolan Carroll. You may be asking yourself who? And I don’t blame you, as the 49ers clearly received the better end of the deal.

With Ginn set to be on the market, which teams will be vying for his services? Per my source, his top three destinations include the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, and Pittsburgh Steelers, as he wants to be closer to home. Whether or not my source is right remains to be seen, but wherever he plays, you can bet your money it won’t be at Candlestick.
