Photos of new Saints wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr., acquired in free agency this offseason, has the ability to take the top off the defense with his blazing 4.28 40-yard dash speed. Ginn Jr. has a career average of 13.9 yards per reception.
He figures to be the deep threat for the offense now after the departure of Brandin Cooks. The 5-foot-11 speedster also will have the opportunity to be a returner for the Saints this season and is a player fans need to watch during 2017 Saints Training Camp presented by Verizon.
The former Ohio State Buckeye has adjusted quickly during the early offseason. Working with his new wide receiving group and quarterback Drew Brees, Ginn said he has "picked up the offense pretty fast."
"We just go out and have fun."
Over his first 10 years, the former ninth overall pick has recorded 4,285 receiving yards, 403 rushing yards and 27 combined rushing and receiving touchdowns (25 and 2 respectively).
As a returner, Ginn has seven return touchdowns along with averaging 10.5 yards per punt return and 22.8 yards per kick return.
As strength coach Dan Dalrymple texted Coach Sean Payton, "TGIF ……. Ted Ginn Is Fast."
