Reports: Ginn Traded

Wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr.'s disappointing tenure with the Dolphins apparently has come to an end. According to multiple published reports, the first by FoxSports's Jay Glazer, the Dolphins traded Ginn to the San Francisco 49ers on Friday. In return, the Dolphins got a fifth-round pick, the 145th overall.

Prior to the trade, the Dolphins were without a fifth-round selection, having sent theirs to Kansas City last year in the trade that brought quarterback Tyler Thipgen.

The ninth overall pick in the 2007 draft, Ginn never lived up to his draft status, nor did he ever become the No. 1 receiver the Dolphins had been looking for.

In fact, Ginn's highlight with the Dolphins came on special teams, namely his two kickoff returns for touchdowns in the victory against the Jets at the Meadowlands last season.

Ginn, who was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week and of the Month for that performance, had caught a long touchdown pass in the first meeting against the Jets.

But his tenure in Miami was marred by inconsistency, both in terms of getting open and in terms of catching the ball.
