Ted Ginn Jr. Likes Lions But Leaves Without Deal

Wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. arrived in Michigan on Wednesday for a visit with the Detroit Lions. The visit concluded today and did not result in a signing. That is because Ginn wants to take his time with making a decision and not rush into anything. He does like what he saw in Allen Park, though.

"I enjoyed myself here today," Ginn said. "A great group of coaches all the way around. As far as a commitment, it’s just a little early right now. I’m going to see my options, but I like the Lions."

As far as what role he would have with the Lions, Ginn made it clear he wants to be "known as a receiver, not a specialist guy, not a punt returner, kickoff returner." He said he wants to be known as an "actual receiver" and that the Lions expressed some things during his visit that he enjoyed hearing.

If Ginn were to sign with the Lions, chances are he would be fourth on the depth chart at receiver. He would also have a very good chance to take Stefan Logan's job as the team's returner, which would free up a roster spot. While Ginn may want to be known for being more than just a returner, the fact that he is so good at that aspect of the game is likely a big reason why the Lions are interested in him.
