Ted Ginn Jr
Ted Ginn Jr. is making a home for himself in Carolina.
The 28-year-old Ginn is proving he still has something left in the tank, catching five passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns to lift the Carolina Panthers to a 25-10 preseason win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night.
In a game void of star power, Derek Anderson completed 10 of 15 passes for 220 yards, including TD strikes of 87 and 35 yards to Ginn, who is looking to re-establish himself in the league after being run out of Miami and San Francisco.
''It was great just going out and finishing the preseason with a bang,'' said Ginn, whose 74-yard punt return sparked Carolina's 34-27 win over Baltimore last week. ''I'm happy I was able to show my team what I have.''
Only a handful of starters played as both coaches took a long look at players further down the depth chart.
Rookie quarterback Landry Jones started and played the entire game for the Steelers, completing 16 of 35...

Sure the last game of the preseason is dull and boring with most fans generally having more interest in “Matlock” re-runs. However, the game is vital to some players who are trying to find their way on to a final roster spot.

Everyone agrees: the Carolina Panthers’ most pressing needs are secondary and defensive tackle. However, secondary far outpaces defensive tackle as an immediate need. Carolina already has two nice defensive ends, serviceable Dwan Edwards at tackle, and two Pro Bowlers and the 2012 Defensive Rookie of the Year filling out the linebacking corps. Unfortunately, they will […]The...
