With Marshall In, Ginn On His Way Out

Even before the Miami Dolphins acquired WR Brandon Marshall from the Denver Broncos, it was reported they were looking to move WR Ted Ginn.  Now that they have a true No. 1 threat, Ginn’s time in Miami should be coming to an end with the Chiefs being a fit, according to Bill Williamson.

Ginn was a top pick in 2007.  He is a dynamic receiver and return man.  But he hasn’t made as big of an impact as a receiver as expected.  He had just 38 catches last season.  Still, if the price is right, he could be an intriguing addition.

The Chiefs could use another receiver and Ginn would help in the return game.  If the price isn’t too much, the Chiefs could be a decent fit for Ginn.

After trading away two second-round picks to pick up Marshall, the Dolphins will have their eye on picking up more picks for next week’s draft and the Chiefs have multiple mid-round selections that could be appealing to Miami.

Chiefs GM Scott Pioli has already cut two trades with his father-in-law, Dolphins EVP Bill Parcells, making it likely that if Kansas City has any interest in Ginn at all a deal will get done quickly.

I know Todd Haley has no desire to bring another WR with the dropsies on board, but Ginn would immediately solve the kick returning issues the Chiefs had to deal with all last season.  If he can be had for one of their 5th round picks in next week’s draft or a conditional late round selection in the 2011 draft, Ginn would be well worth the risk.
