Ginn Shipped To San. Fran

The Miami Dolphins and the San Francisco 49ers completed a trade today that sent disappointing wide receiver Ted Ginn to the 49ers for a 5th round pick (pick 145).

The fact that Ginn was on the trade block was no surprise, in fact, this was known for a week now.

We wish 'ol Teddy the best of luck, but he can go cut to the sidelines, fear contact, and drop balls all he wants now on the 49ers.

But the fact that the Fins would actually get something for Ginn, who was more known for being a reach, and a bust in the 2007 NFL Draft, than his productivity on the field, was unknown up until this afternoon.

Ginn is welcome to run all the way to his flight, and to the sidelines in San Francisco. While Ginn had a somewhat impressive year returning kickoffs, it was not the same story while on offense for the Fins. Most memorably, the dropped pass that would have won the Week 2 matchup on Monday Night against the Indianapolis Colts.

Ginn was never the player that went out and made a play when his number was called. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Ginn’s career in Miami was marred by numerous dropped passes, and boos from the hometown fans, which I may add, was deserved on Ginn’s part.

Once stud wide receiver Brandon Marshall was acquired, there was no need for a disappointment like Ginn to waste a roster spot on. Sure, now the Dolphins have to find someone to return kicks, but that should be relatively easy, considering there are several top return men scattered all throughout next Thursday’s draft.

The Dolphins wide receiving core now consists of Marshall, Brian Hartline, Davone Bess, Greg Camarillo, and Patrick Turner. All are expected to contribute in their own way next year, and when you look at this lineup, and the depth that this position now has, someone had to go, and it just so happens that Ginn was one of the longest tenured, and least valuable to the team.

This is simply the business side of the football, and instead of weeping over a bad move, or the loss of a fan favorite, this time, the move was a well thought out trade, that sent away one of the guys on the team who was begging for a change of scenery.
