NEWS: Bears Release Veteran WR Ted Ginn Jr.
The Bears have cut the 14-year pro after seeing minimal usage through the first half of the 2020 season.
After what was a very quiet NFL Trade Deadline, the Chicago Bears made a move, however this was to free up a roster spot. Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Bears have released Ted Ginn Jr.
In only six games of action this season, Ginn caught an underwhelming three passes for 40 yards. He also averaged 4.8 yards per return on five punt returns.
To say Ginn’s time in Chicago was disappointing would be is an understatement. Ginn was quickly forgotten about on the wide receiver depth chart with the emergence of fifth round pick Darnell Mooney, who is currently second on the Bears in receiving yards (305) only to Allen Robinson’s 631 yards.
Ginn signed a one-year contract in the offseason. It was a low risk, high reward type move for Chicago. The writing was on the wall for the end of Ginn’s tenure when the Bears signed and activated receiver and punt returner Dwayne Harris.
