After being cut by the Arizona Cardinals this week, Ted Ginn Jr. has sparked interest in multiple organizations, most notably the Cleveland Browns. Ginn is currently working out with Browns safety Donte Whitner in Miami, who has since reached out to head coach Mike Pettine. Whitner informed his coach of Ginn’s desire to come home and Cleveland is reported to have contacted Ginn’s agent.

This is a deal that makes sense for both the organization and the Cleveland native. Last season, the Browns ranked 28th in the league in punt return average. In fact, as a team they recorded just 181 punt return yards. So needless to say a dangerous return man is needed to fix a major problem. Enter Ted Ginn.

It’s important to realize the Ohio State product piled up 277 yards, including a 71 yard touchdown, on punts alone last year. Throughout his eight-year career, the speedster has registered a smidgen below 8,500 yards and seven touchdowns (four punt return and three kick return). His explosiveness could be the spark plug on special teams that Cleveland has recently lacked.

Not to mention Ginn can also fill in at the receiver position giving additional roster flexibility. He proved to be productive early in his career with the Miami Dolphins and reemerged as a decent threat over the past two years catching 50 passes and scoring five times. Additionally, cap space is of no concern as the Ohio native should come at an affordable price (Last year Ginn’s cap cost was $2.25 million).

The Cleveland Browns should continue the homecoming movement and bring home Ted Ginn Jr.
