Ted Ginn Sr. wants son out of San Francisco, says ‘they don’t use him’

NFL

Ted Ginn Sr. said he thought it was time for his son, Ted Ginn, Jr., to move on from the 49ers, according to Tim Warsinskey of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Ginn Jr., a wide receiver for the 49ers, played in 13 games and was used mainly as a kick and punt returner; as a receiver, he caught two passes for one yard during the regular season.

Ginn Jr. himself didn’t complain about his lack of playing time when asked the week before the Super Bowl. He admitted that he’d like to have a larger role but sacrifices had to be made:

“Yeah, for sure,” Ginn Jr. said when asked if he’d like to have more of an impact on offense. But he added, “Most of the time when you’re on championship teams, you have to sacrifice…So, you just go out and control what you can control, and you play the game.”

His father, however, voiced his grievances:

Ginn Jr., 27, has been with the 49ers since 2010 and will be a free agent this offseason.

The tough thing with Ginn is that he isn't a great receiver, but he also was the reason the Niners didn't make the Super Bowl the previous year. He's healthy and they're don't have the Kyle Williams blunders that cost them the game against the Giants. He's like a less good Devin Hester. Good return guy, but underwhelming receiver.

The question is, do they pay him? If they do, why complain?

Maybe the 49ers saw him single hand-idly lose 2-4 games when he played for Miami due to dropped touchdown and 3rd down conversion passes late in games while wide open. The boy cannot catch and should consider himself extremely lucky to have played a role on a Super Bowl team at all in his sorry career. Good return guy, when he catches the ball, but a terrible receiver expressly because he drops more balls than he catches.

AS a 49er fan who likes Ted Ginn, how do I say this nicely? Your son can't catch.

He should feel lucky. They are gonna send him on his way anyway. Maybe he will come crawling back when no one wants him.

Good let him fumble punts and drop passes somewhere else.

Teddy Plywood (my nickname for him) went #9 overall to Miami who made a terrible choice drafting him but made a good decision dispatching him after 3 years. 6 TD receptions in his 6 year career, 1 TD reception in 3 years with the 49ers - that says it all.
