Lions Free Agency 2012: Ted Ginn Jr., To Visit Lions, According To Report

While the Detroit Lions were busy signing their top receiver to a mega contract extension this morning, they were also orchestrating a visit for free agent Ted Ginn Jr., according to a report.

Ginn will visit the team on Wednesday or Thursday, and would seem to be a fit for the Lions as a fourth receiver. Additionally, Ginn is one of the fastest and most feared returners in the league. He returned two kicks for a score within a minute of each other during San Francisco's week one victory over Seattle in 2011.

Formerly the Dolphins top pick in the 2007 draft after an exciting career at Ohio State, Ginn was traded by Miami to San Francisco for a fourth round draft choice prior to the 2010 draft.
