Sounds like a good move for both. Singletary will get him to produce and the Phins no longer need him.

I figured this would be coming after they got Marshall.

Miami got a fifth round pick out out the deal.

Quote:
Fresh off their acquisition of Brandon Marshall, the Miami Dolphins on Friday traded wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. to the San Francisco 49ers.

The trade was first reported on the Twitter account of FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer.

The 49ers will send a fifth-round pick in this year's draft to Miami, a league source confirmed to ESPN.com's Mike Sando.

The three-day draft begins Thursday

He's a career special teamer...and that's about it. He's a "track N field" WR...which means great straightline speed...but little else.

He's too small to be an effective blocker (and not interested in that part of the game anyways.) He has suspect hands and is a terrible route runner.

I like Singletary...but he's a football player turned football coach....not a miracle worker

If anyone should know anything about leadership, it's you. Did you not follow what Singletary did with Davis? He molded Davis into a leader. I watched it unfold with my own eyes and I remain highly impressed.

Ted Ginn isn't going to become Jerry Rice, but I think he'll be more productive as a 49er than he was as a Dolphin and I mean that on offense as well as ST's.

The great thing is, we'll get to to see.

Davis had the natural ability to be a really good TE (I assume you are talking about Vernon Davis) at the NFL level. Ted Ginn does not. He might be able to get more out of Ginn than the Dolphins were able to...but I don't think it will be enough. Ginn is a special teams specialist and will only break into the WR rotation if there are major injuries. Naturally, this is all just an opinion...but it's one that this Buckeye Fan can say he believes wholeheartedly in...from watching Ginn for years. I'd love for him to represent tOSU in a big way...I just never believed he had it in him.

Ted Ginn has not panned out, they was high hopes on this kid. Maybe a new team is what he needs but so far he has been a disappointment.

With Vernon Davis, I wasn't comparing the talent, I was comparing the coaching and leadership aspect (of Singletary).

You probably do know more about Ginn than I do, but then again the 49ers (and Phins a few years before) both thought he was worth a first rounder.
