The big news today is that Brandon Marshall has been traded to Miami for two 2nd round picks. This leaves little room for former first-rounder Ted Ginn, and it has been leaked that the Dolphins have been shopping him around to check his market value.
Smart money says that Ginn could be had for a 5th or 6th round pick. The way I see it, he is well worth that, and he seems to fit the Panther's needs.
Steve Smith recently asked for a young "brain-dead" receiver that would just run deep routes so he can work the underneath stuff. Ginn fits that role perfectly.
Ginn would also give the Panthers a weapon in the return game. I don't recall which game it was, but in 2009 Ginn essentially won a game for Miami single-handedly on the strength of two brilliant TD returns.
If the Panthers are willing to take a late round flier on a rookie, why not spend that same pick on a guy that is easy to read--i.e. you know what you are getting with Ginn. So herein lies the question...Should Carolina entertain a trade for Ginn, assuming the asking price is a fifth rounder or less?
