Ted Ginn Jr. traded to the San Francisco 49ers

The Miami Dolphins have traded wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. to the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers are getting a low-round draft pick in return.

The Dolphins have been trying to get rid of Ginn Jr., who is one of their biggest busts in their team history. This move comes two days after the team acquired Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Marshall from the Denver Broncos.

When Ginn Jr. was drafted with the ninth overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, he was booed by them as the fans thought that they should draft Brady Quinn. In three seasons, he averaged 13 yards per reception, while having just five touchdowns.

Last season, as a return specialist, he had a 100-yard and a 101-yard return in the same quarter against the New York Jets. He’s also the first player in NFL history to accomplish this feat.

With Ginn Jr. now out of the picture, the team still has Brian Hardline, Davone Bess and Greg Camarillo to go along with Marshall.

In San Francisco, he’s expected to complement Michael Crabtree. The team is hoping that he won’t be a bust like he was with the Dolphins and will play like he did while a member of the Ohio State Buckeyes.

As a collegiate player, he set an NCAA record with eight return touchdowns.
