Lions Reportedly Will Host Ted Ginn Jr. For Visit

Ted Ginn of the San Francisco 49ers outruns Earl Thomas and the rest of the Seattle Seahawks on his way to scoring a touchdown on a kickoff return.

MLive's Anwar Richardson is reporting that the Detroit Lions have scheduled a visit with wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. Ginn spent the last two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers and will be in town today or tomorrow, according to Richardson.

Ginn entered the NFL in 2007 with the Dolphins and spent a total of three seasons in Miami. He was dealt to San Francisco for a fifth-round pick in 2010, ending his disappointing stint with the Dolphins. Out west, Ginn didn't contribute all that much as a receiver (he only had 19 catches for 220 yards last year, for example), but he was outstanding as a returner. In 2011, he averaged 27.6 yards per kick return and had one touchdown. He also averaged 12.3 yards per punt return and had a touchdown.

If the Lions decided to sign him, he would be slotted as the fourth receiver on the depth chart. More importantly, he could potentially unseat Stefan Logan as the team's return man. If that were to happen, the Lions would essentially free up a roster spot, as Logan doesn't get much work at receiver and is mainly a special teams player.

We all saw what happened with the 49ers in the playoffs against the New York Giants when Ginn was out with an injury, so I think he would be a pretty nice addition as a returner and depth at receiver.
