“We are excited to add Ted to our team,” Rivera said. “He is an explosive player, who could help us both on offense and in the return game.”
He’ll have to find time with Armanti Edwards, Kealoha Pilares and Joe Adams also vying for time. Each of these receivers caught passes in 2012. Ginn Jr., Adams, Pilares and Edwards can also be used in the return game.
In 2011, he was the 12th player in NFL history, who returned a kickoff and punt for a touchdown in the same game. In his final season in San Francisco, he was third in the NFC with his 10.3-yards per punt return.
Ginn Jr. also has three kickoff and three punt returns for touchdowns in his career. He’s averaging averaging 23.2 yards per kickoff return and 11.0 yards per punt return.
As mentioned, he can also be used as a receiver when called upon. He has 161 receptions in his career for 2,048 yards and six touchdowns. He also has 27 carries for 210 yards with two more touchdowns.
