Prominent role for Ginn?
By Tim Kavanagh
The Carolina Panthers didn't have a lot of cap space with which to work this offseason, but they did make some fine additions here and there to the roster. One of those additions was WR/returner Ted Ginn, and apparently, the former first-round pick has eyes for contributing extensively in both realms of his multi-faceted job title.
"I want to show the world that I can still play receiver," Ginn declared recently, via Steve Reed of the Associated Press. "I got kind of bashed over the years, being labeled a specialist."
Beyond Steve Smith, there's little certainty in the Panthers' WR corps, so there's obviously the opportunity there for Ginn to step up and overtake Brandon LaFell for a prominent role. As for the return game, the buzz we've been hearing is that there's a strong possibility that Ginn will handle both kickoff and punt returns.
