NFL Free Agency: 49ers WR Ted Ginn Gets Offers from Panthers, Bengals

49ers free agent wide receiver and special teams player Ted Ginn reportedly has offers from the Bengals and Panthers, according to the Charlotte Observer. 

Ginn visited with the Panthers this week and excited Panthers head coach Ron Rivera.

“Ted came in and did a nice job. I know our guys really spoke highly of his visit,” said Rivera. “The interesting thing about Ted is he gives us some depth at wide receiver who can challenge for playing time opportunity. But also he’s got special teams value, which is big.”

It is a foregone conclusion that Ted Ginn has played his last game in a 49er uniform, as NinerNoise reported earlier this month that he would not be re-signed.

Ginn came over to the 49ers in 2010 via a trade from the Dolphins, and served as a punt and kickoff returner. Last season, he had 326 yards on 32 punt returns and 253 yards on 11 kickoff returns.

However, he was essentially a non-factor in terms of receiving, catching just two passes for one yard in 13 games. His production at wide receiver has declined every year since 2008.
