INDIANAPOLIS — Ted Ginn Jr. has put up two of his best seasons of his 10-year career while in Carolina, and Panthers coach Ron Rivera anticipates the former Ohio State wide receiver will continue to produce for the team.
“Ted is still a very important part to what we do,” Rivera said Thursday at the 2017 NFL Combine. “I think he fits us very well. The success he’s had with us has been well-documented.
“Again, it’s one of those cases where we’re a place where a guy can succeed, for him individually. I think he’s a part of what we do, and he’s a part of our offense.”
Ginn caught 54 passes for 752 yards and four scores last year for Carolina. He missed career bests by two catches and 38 yards. He also led Carolina in punt returns and kickoff returns.
In 2015, Ginn scored a personal-best 10 touchdowns for the NFC Champion Panthers. Ginn has played for Miami, San Francisco and Arizona during his career and has 309 catches for 4,285 yards and 25 receiving touchdowns.
