According to NFL.com, Ginn signed the two-year contract for an unspecified amount and proclaimed “I’m back Bank of America!” (Bank of America Stadium is the home field for the Carolina Panthers.)
The former Dolphins, 49ers and Cardinals speedster returns to the Panthers, who he played for in 2013, after a one-year stint with the Arizona Cardinals that saw him post career-lows in yards/kick return.
In eight seasons since being drafted No. 9 overall by the Miami Dolphins, Ginn has played for four NFL teams and has been best utilized as a kick returner. His four career PR TDs are tied for fourth among all active players and his three career KR TDs is tied for 8th.
In 2013, his first and only year with the Panthers, Ginn set a career high with 15.4 yards/reception, and finished 8th in the NFL in yards/punt return as well as 10th in kick and punt return yards.
Ginn’s return will at the very least give the Panthers some semblance of a deep threat after depleting their receiving corps in 2014 – though they still managed to win the NFC South Title despite their 7-8-1 regular season record and beat Ginn’s Cardinals in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.
